The chiropractor who manipulated the spine of a four-day-old baby in a video that went viral has been temporarily banned from treating children.
Dr Ian Rossborough from Parkdale in Melbourne may face tougher penalties reports The Herald Sun with the Chiropractic Board of Australia expected to hold a hearing into his conduct.
Dr Rossborough performed a chiropractic procedure on a newborn in a video that then went viral where he performed a manoeuvre on the spine of a four-day-old baby, after her parents allegedly said she had colic and reflux.

The ban, reports The Age will stays in force until June 2 while the Chiropractic Board of Australia it investigates his conduct.
2. PM faces pub test in Darwin.
The Prime Minister faced voters in Darwin last night at a ‘politics in the pub’ event alongside the Liberal MP Natasha Griggs who holds the seat of Solomon by a 1.4 per cent margin.
The ABC spoke to some of the locals who questioned him with one saying the PM was “eloquent and very well spoken, definitely very persuasive.”

“It’s close to a lot of people,” she said.
