Dr Christian Fludder

Christian is a Chiropractor working in Melbourne, Australia, with a clinical focus on children. After completing a post-graduate qualification in Chiropractic Paediatrics, Christian became one of the founding Directors for the Australian College of Chiropractic Paediatrics, and more recently has become a Founding Director for a charity aimed at raising funding for research, the Chiropractic Paediatric Research Foundation.

He has been practicing as a chiropractor for nearly 20 years, and for the last 6 years he has worked in a children’s only practice where he has enjoyed immensely helping children of all stages; from newborns to those old enough to be passing their P’s.

He has been published in numerous journals writing about con-ditions in childhood from plagiocephaly to hip dysplasia, is involved in writing several policy documents aimed at improving chiropractic management of various conditions, and is currently involved in teaching chiropractic paediatrics as a part of a private program. In addition to this, he runs a YouTube channel aimed at providing informative content for parents and a podcast aimed at providing informative content to chiropractors.

But why the interest in children? Well, the two children that he does have managed to provide very interesting situations: his daughter was born with a dislocated hip and his son had a major head trauma at 18 months of age (26 stitches in the forehead), so he has been able to draw upon life experience to help those around him. (Plus, working with kids is incredible!)
