Children & adolescents
Osteopathy is a gentle and safe approach for children. Unlike adults, kids are great at listening to their bodies (unless there is an iPad present). They'll rest when they need to and move and jump when they need to (even at 5.30am).
All children from infancy through to adolescence can suffer with aches and pains as a result of falls, postural problems, rapid growth, illness and sporting injuries. Whilst they normally bounce back, occasionally problems will remain.
we often need your assistance
With your assistance, we will take a thorough medical history, conduct an examination and using the best available evidence create a plan to address your child’s needs. This would most often take the form of a short treatment and some easily implementable advice, whether it is changes to their lifestyle, sport commitments, or with infants – recommendations for an alternative sleep position.
We often liaise with your other health professionals, such as a paediatric physiotherapist, GP, Paediatrician, MCH nurse, teacher, coach and refer to a specialist if required.
The Osteopaths at Fairfield Osteopathic Clinic can assess and treat children of all ages, so they can continue to develop in the best possible way for a healthy young life.
