OSTEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR CHILDREN

Osteopaths recognise the particular stresses and strains that can affect the body as a child develops from a baby to a teenager.

Some common conditions that we treat:

  • Back pain & headaches
  • Growing pains
  • Postural or spinal problems
  • Sporting injuries
  • Strains from falls or accidents
  • & many more…

Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners, and are trained to recognise causes of pain/injury which may require referral. We may also refer for radiological assessment or communicate with the family healthcare specialist, GP and accompanying parent or guardian.

What will treatment involve?

During an appointment, a case history is taken, followed by an Osteopathic examination to help identify and diagnose the problem being experienced. Our Osteopaths will work with you and your child to formulate an appropriate plan moving forward.

Treatment, utilising a range of gentle techniques may help alleviate symptoms. Effective, early treatment can prevent problems from reoccurring. A consultation will also include advice on rehabilitation exercises, postural correction, sport and activity participation, dietary advice or pain relief advice to help implement an overall management plan.
