OSTEOPATHY FOR BABIES AND CHILDREN
Most children respond well to osteopathic treatment. Treatment techniques are different to those applied to adults, and are based upon the timeless wisdom of the old masters.
The paediatric osteopath is trained to develop fine palpatory skills, to help in assessing and diagnosing the areas related to the presenting problem, and accordingly treat to improve function so that the child can achieve his/her maximum potential.
Osteopathic treatment for children is carried out by applying gentle pressure over the areas related to the problem.
Then most common conditions to help children are.
1. Possetting or regurgitation
2. Grumpy and tense children
3. Difficult birth
4. Forceps or ventouse used during delivery
