August 078

Osteopaths are qualified to work with babies and children.  Osteopathic treatment assesses the strains that your child might have and helps to resolve these with gentle hands-on techniques. Cranial osteopathic techniques, which are very gentle, are often used when treating young children and newborn infants.

The osteopaths at Osteo-Centre hold specialists post-graduate qualification in paediatric osteopathy.

Babies

In the last months of pregnancy, as babies grow larger and stronger, they have less and less room to move within the mother’s uterus which can lead to restricted structures and loss of mobility.   These stresses and strain, together with the different types of deliveries whether they have been very rapid or long, drawn out with forceps or ventouse, or a Caesarean birth,  can influence their posture and create tensions.  This can lead to unsettled behaviour and difficulty with feeding, digestion problems and inability to relax.  Gentle osteopathic treatment could be very helpful to release tensions, sooth and relax your baby and promote the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

 

Children

Childhood and adolescence is a time of huge change.  Rapid growth and development places many challenges on the developing body:   growing, learning new skills, or coping with the seemingly endless demands of a changing life, childhood falls or sporting injuries.   Osteopathic treatment aims at reducing structural imbalances and pain that can develop through the childhood and adolescence life and maximize the child’s ability to grow and develop to the best of his/her ability.   The common reasons why parents seek osteopathic treatment for their children are:

 

  • Low back pain, mid-back pain, neck, pelvic, hip and coccyx pain
  • Growing pains, upper and lower limb pains
  • Postural fatigue
  • Pain due to dental devices
  • Pain related to the practice of a sport
  • Digestive problems
  • Inability to relax, anxiety and headaches

When to consult

It is recommended to consult an osteopath as soon as symptoms appear.

It is also advisable to have a regular osteopathic assessment (1-2 times a year) for prevention and to avoid the accumulation of tensions and trigger pain.  The osteopathic assessment involves the verification of posture; and treatment to address the stresses and strains of your daily life.
