Babies & Children

Osteopaths treat babies, children and teenagers for a range of conditions. Osteopathic treatment of babies is to help alleviate the problems that are causing the baby to cry. The aim of treatment is to increase the range of motion, increase circulation and improve lymphatic drainage to the restricted joints and other relevant tissues. Research has shown that osteopathy for musculoskeletal issues in children is a safe modality when administed by osteopaths with appropriate qualifications. Please check the practitioner profiles to see which osteopaths at this centre have the apppropriate education, training, experience and competence.

Early treatment may prevent other problems from occurring.

A child’s or baby’s reaction after treatment

Reactions to treatment depends on each case, but usually the baby or child is relaxed afterwards and sleeps well. Some may feel energetic after treatment, often followed by a good night sleep. On the odd occasion, they are unsettled - but this usually clears within 24-48 hours.
