Osteopathy for babies & children provides a natural and safe approach which can help throughout all stages of development.
Like adults, they suffer from musculo-skeletal issues too. Because babies’ skeletons are softer than an adult’s, paediatric osteopathy treatments use a wide range of gentle approaches in order to encourage its physical balance.
Cranial osteopathy, in particular, is becoming increasingly popular for treating common conditions affecting babies and young children. This involves the application of minimal pressure to the plates of the bones of the skull and spine in order to release subtle tensions in the deeper tissues enabling the body to return to a state of well-being.
A correct function of the musculoskeletal framework of the body is essential to baby’s overall health and development.
Paediatric Osteopathy can be used to help with the following:
- Breastfeeding issues
- Digestive difficulties
- Sleeping disorders
- Milestones assessment
- Body asymmetries
- Growing pains
- Sport injuries
