Childhood misalignment can be associated with a host of symptoms including broken sleep, mood swings, aches and pains, restricted movement, colic or restricted bowel function. Osteopathic treatment works to alleviate these symptoms and assist your child in maintaining alignment as they grow.
Shifts in your child’s alignment may come about due to falls or accidents, inflammation, sudden growth spurts, or genetic disorders. After locating the cause of discomfort, your osteopath will use gentle techniques to bring things back into place. This calming approach makes osteopathic treatment suitable for children of all ages, including newborns. Children under 16 must be accompanied to their appointment by an adult.
