Osteopathic care for children and babies

 

Young children and babies cannot verbally tell us they are in pain or discomfort. The problem is often suspected through an increase in crying, restlessness and general irritability.


In the treatment of young children and babies, the use of cranial osteopathic techniques are often used.


Cranial techniques work by feeling for subtle movements in the body sometimes referred to as the involuntary mechanism or the cranial rhythm.


The techniques used are gentle and aim to decrease tension within the child or baby’s body (tension is often presented in the head or spine).
