Pre & Postnatal Programs
Osteopathy for Babies and Children
It is a common belief that children should have no structural stresses because they are young and their bodies are so supple. However, that isn’t always the case. Birth-induced stress, especially as the result of a difficult birth or a forceps or vacuum extraction, and falls and accidents as children grow can contribute to problems later in life. In babies and toddlers, these types of stresses can cause colic, reflux, gas, feeding difficulties, recurrent ear infections, sleep disturbances, asymmetrical movement (favoring one side), delayed crawling or walking, or alignment problems as they begin to walk. For preschoolers, they can show up as alignment or postural concerns.
Osteopathy gently aligns the bones of the skull and other tissues of the body to their optimum position. When this essential framework is in place, many problems resolve. Most children benefit from occasional treatment throughout childhood to pick up any developing problems early and minimize their long-term effects. Our osteopathy services are covered by most health insurance plans. Learn More
