Osteopathy for Babies

Osteopathy Is Safe For Babies

Babies can experience a lot of stress and anxiety during even a normal pregnancy and birth process and this can lead to various feeding, sleeping and temperament problems. These problems can be made much worse during a long labour, breech birth, ventouse/forceps delivery or caesarean section. In the young baby this may lead to feeding and behavioural problems, difficulty settling and sleeping through the night or irritability. As the child grows up, problems such as glue ear can also appear.

Cranial osteopathic treatment is very gentle and safe. It uses gentle re-balancing techniques by the application of skilled, light contact wherever necessary on the baby's head. It is a very effective treatment for babies and children in assisting the natural ability of the body to relax and release tension.

Parents have sought osteopathic treatment for their children due to symptoms such as irritability, glue ear, hyperactivity, gastric reflux, behaviour and learning difficulties, sinus problems, headaches, back and neck pain.
