Can Children Benefit from Osteopathic Treatment?
For young children, recognizing and treating mobility or joint issues as early as possible is important to ensuring healthy development. When used in combination with treatment from a family physician or Paediatrician, Osteopathic treatment can help these issues and improve overall well-being.
Parents tend to choose Osteopathic treatment for their children because of the gentle, non-invasive techniques that are used. Osteopaths will spend time to address the whole body and root cause, not simply treating pain alone. It is also a completely natural form of treatment.
It is never too early to begin Osteopathic treatment as problems left untreated can pose greater issues later in life. Children can greatly benefit from osteopathic treatment and the techniques used are very gentle and are suitable for children of any age.
Osteopathy can be used to treat a number of early childhood issues, including:
- Limbs, joints, neck or head movement issue
- Falls, accidents, trauma or injuries
- Postural issues
- Growing pains
