Osteopathy can help children with a range of physical problems. Children may be treated from 6 weeks old up to the age of 16 years.
At the first consultation a thorough case history is compiled, followed by detailed examination of your child's muscles, ligaments and joints as well as evaluating other relevant structures when necessary.
Your osteopath may also observe your child's movements. Once a diagnosis is reached, a detailed explanation will be given and options for treatment will be discussed. A wide range of gentle manual techniques are used in therapy. Your osteopath may also give advice on exercise, posture or diet. Osteopathy can complement the role of your doctor or hospital.
