Osteopathy and Children
A Calm and Soothing Approach to Treating Children
The Calm and soothing approach of Osteopathy makes it especially suitable for treating children, including newborn infants. Children may develop structural problems from a variety of causes including:
Difficulties during pregnancy or birth
Childhood accidents and falls
Infections or inflammatory conditions
Osteopathy & Newborn
The birth is certainly the finest and most moving moment of life, yet a few people know the mechanism and the difficulties resulting from a difficult birth. The mechanism of childbirth may have consequences for the life of the child. Over and above newborns have anatomical and physiological specificities, their bodies are completely immature.
Osteopathy and Headaches
Headaches are one of the most common medical complaints of civilised humanity, however severe headache is only infrequently caused by serious underlying disease.
Common Causes of Headache
Headache originating from the neck is the most common type of headache. Other varied causes are eyestrain, sinus disease, neck injury (eg. Whiplash), tension headache from stress, poor posture, etc, migraines, jaw misalignment (eg. Following dental work).
Osteopathy for Back Pain
Osteopathy treats back pain with a combination of conventional medical treatments and spinal manipulation. Osteopathic manipulation techniques (OMTs) are particularly well suited for treating common causes of back pain.
