Is Osteopathic treatment safe for babies and children?

Structural problems in the body, sometimes very minor ones, can cause other problems. Osteopaths often help babies with:

  • Colic and constipation
  • Constant crying
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Sleep difficulties
  • General unsettled behaviour
  • Delayed development
  • Misshapen skulls
  • Babies that favour one side, eg limited head/ neck movement


 Older children and teenagers can be helped with conditions like:

  • Headaches
  • Ear infections
  • Sinus congestion
  • Poor concentration
  • Asthma
  • Growing pains
  • Recurrent throat infections
  • Urinary conditions
  • Gait problems or foot pain
  • Scoliosis and other postural problems
