Osteopathy for children and babies recognises the particular stresses on the body of children as they grow from babies to teenagers, and has developed an approach to work with children of all ages.
A range of problems may interfere with the normal development of a child. Childhood accidents and falls, or simply the young body's rapid growth can create or contribute to problems associated with bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves.
Other issues faced by children include birth strains, posture problems, inflammatory conditions and sporting injuries.
Our osteopaths at Enhance Osteopathy will work with you and your child to plan the best way forward. Your osteopath will take a complete medical history, conduct an examination, and ask you and your child questions. Your osteopath and you can determine which type of osteopathic treatment is suitable, and if referrals to other health practitioners are needed. Your osteopath can also offer advice on nutrition, general health, posture and exercise.
