Osteopathic practitioners use pediatric osteopathy exclusively to treat babies and children.
Children have constantly changing structures as they grow. These changes can sometimes result in aches and pains or predispose them to sporting injuries. In babies, the trauma of birth can cause many issues including breastfeeding problems, torticollis, colic, pain and discomfort.
Pediatric osteopathy uses gentle therapeutic techniques, stretches and cranial osteopathic techniques to alleviate symptoms and aid growth in infants and children.
