Osteopathy for Children

Osteopaths use very gentle manual therapy techniques, which are suitable for children of all ages, used to address any mechanical issues that may be compromising their health. 

 

Osteopaths do not treat conditions.  Despite this, people usually find it easier to describe their concerns in terms of conditions and diseases. With children for example parents commonly describe their concerns in terms such as inconsolable crying and distress, colic, reflux, unsettled child, poor feeding, wind, sleeping problems, glue ear, painful ears, breathing difficulties, nasal congestion, recurrent infections, poor concentration, growing pains, disruptive behaviour, aggression, head pain, misshapen head, plagiocephaly and Down's Syndrome.

Osteopathic healthcare looks at the individual person, and treatment is based on their individual needs.
