The calm and gentle approach of osteopathy makes it especially suitable for treating children, including newborns and infants. Structural misalignments can lead to a range of problems; these problems may include:
• Back pain
• Postural problems - such as scoliosis
• Respiratory problems - such as asthma
• Manifestations of brain injury - such as cerebral palsy and spasticity
• Infections - such as ear, throat and/or urinary disturbances
Osteopathy can assist in the prevention of health problems and help children make a smoother transition with their growth and development. This holistic approach encompasses all variables that affect the person's wellbeing including their body, emotions, mind and spirit.
