Osteopathy For Babies And Toddlers

During child birth, babies can undergo a lot of stress to the face and head especially if birthing aids such as forceps or vacuums are used. Our Osteopaths that work with babies have done extra training to be able to assess and treat any dysfunction as a result of these stresses. During infancy, babies can also develop other issues that Osteopaths may be able to help with. Our Osteopaths will work with you and your child to plan the best way forward and if referral to other health practitioners is required.

Some common conditions that osteopaths treat in the newborn age group include:

Osteopathy for Children and Adolescents

A range of problems may interfere with the normal development of a child from infancy all the way through to skeletal maturity as an adolescent.

Some common conditions that osteopaths treat in the children through to adolescent group include:

  • Postural problems (eg. from sitting at desks, using IPads)
