London's Specialist Osteopath for Babies

Osteopathy has many benefits for children ranging in age from newborn to toddler to teenagers.

Osteopathy and Babies

A check up with an osteopath following birth can be beneficial in helping to relieve some of the stresses and strains the baby may have suffered during the pregnancy and the birth process. These stresses caused by the large compression forces applied during labour can in some cases result in problems such as problems feeding, settling, and sleeping, reflux, colic or constant crying, digestion problems, winding, altered bowel movements, sinus problems, torticollis and plagiocephally (flat or odd shaped head).

Osteopathy for babies is very gentle, using subtle techniques including cranial osteopathy, to help relieve some of the tension and compression in the membranes, cranium and other tissues. Osteopaths may also be able to provide some helpful advice to parents to help them to make their babies more comfortable at home.

Osteopathy and Toddlers

As babies develop and start to crawl, stand, walk and communicate and interact more socially, it is a good time to have an osteopath check their progress at meeting developmental milestones. There are also some bumps and falls that may need addressing or respiratory tract infections including otitis media (glue ear).
