Years of clinical research has led to the development of an amazingly accurate, reproducible system of assessment that afford the chiropractor an opportunity to impact even the most difficult of cases.

Dr Neil J. Davies D.C. of Kiro Kids and NIP Academy

My name is Dr Neil Davies and you could say this is where it all began! Way back in the early decade of 2000, Adjusting the Child was the title of the premier Kiro Kids teaching program.

Our assessment and correction protocol was honed and refined on children and adults hardly rated a mention! Using our precise and gentle corrections designed for children, we soon found that adults responded as effectively. NIP was borne and became the natural evolution of the popular Adjusting the Child program. With the continued increasing interest in chiropractic paediatrics and the desire of the average chiropractor to improve their motion palpation and adjusting skills, we still teach Adjusting the Child with a unique paediatric focus.


Our Mission and Passion

Adjusting the Child by Kiro Kids is the adapation of NIP the paediatric patientWe aim to empower every chiropractor to attract families in their community, provide the highest levels of proficiency of neuroarticular detection and correction and help those chiropractors to position themselves in their local community with the unique skills learned in this program.

After many years, it is true to say that the enjoyment of witnessing that empowerment take place, the growth of confidence in young chiropractors and sharing the remarkable results seen in those changing practices is the greatest reward of all!

Ultimate Precision for the Discerning Clinician

Davies D.C. demonstrating motion palpation with a childAlong with its gentleness the uniqueness of the NIP system lies in its ability to direct the chiropractor to exactly the right location to adjust. It does this by the highly sophisticated integration of very precise chiropractic assessment techniques and detailed neurological examination.

The NIP technique is used exclusively throughout the Kiro Kids Family Chiropractic Clinics in Victoria Australia by all the chiropractors and the results has been nothing short of astonishing in terms of new patient numbers. Patients drive long distance to receive NIP technique because the results they are getting are quick and sustainable and they don’t get hurt by hard manipulative style techniques.

  • The 1st Edition is still entirely relevant and was the first comprehensively packaged DVD Kiro Kids created. It forms the baseline in NIP learning and is ideal to have on your office shelf if you have an interest in adjusting children.
  • The 3rd DVD in the Adjusting the Child set is a series of cases filmed in the Ballarat Kiro Kids clinic over a day demonstrating the key elements of the protocol and live adjustments.
