Babies and children

as the twig is bent, so the tree will grow…” A.T Still founder of Osteopathy

Osteopaths believe prevention is better than cure. As the birth process can be one of the most physically traumatic a human can experience, we also believe that all babies, regardless of symptoms, should be checked after birth.

Common baby complaints:

  • Birth trauma
  • Reflux and colic
  • Stiff neck
  • Feeding and attachment issues
  • Sleep issues
  • “flat head ” deformity
  • Ear ache and respiratory infections
  • Constipation

Common childhood and teenage complaints:

  • Walking difficulties
  • Joint pain and growing pains
  • Scoliosis
  • Postural problems
  • Back pain
  • Ear infections
  • Asthma and chest infections
  • Back pain and headaches
  • Sports injuries

All techniques used with babies and children are very gentle, no forceful manipulation is used and most children really enjoy getting treated!
