It is a common belief that babies and children should have no structural stresses or strains in their bodies, because they are 'so young'. The reality is very different.
Osteopathic treatment can be invaluable in optimising the health of babies and children, as well as addressing a wide range of conditions such as Irritability and crying.
A common misconception is that Osteopaths can only treat back and bone pain. Osteopathy is the treatment of the whole of the musculo skeletal system, which includes Chronic low back pain, Headaches and Sports Injuries.
Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.
