Osteopathy for babies and children

Cathy has a post-graduate diploma in paediatric osteopathy, from training at the internationally renowned Osteopathic Centre for Children.

Babies and children go through a lot of mechanical changes from birth until musculoskeletal maturity. Sometimes there are stresses placed on a baby’s or child’s body that may change their ability to grow and function at their optimum. As osteopaths believe that treating the musculoskeletal system can help the overall function of the body, osteopathy may help your child adapt to the changes that are necessary.

Sometimes falls or other childhood accidents may cause mechanical adaptations throughout the child’s body and cause joint or muscular pain that may be helped by osteopathic treatment.

Gentle techniques, such as cranial osteopathy, are used and are suitable for children of all ages. Please contact Cathy if you have queries regarding whether to book your child an appointment.

Osteopaths work within a health care framework and refer to other health professionals for further management if necessary.
