Regardless of which manner they are born, babies may be subjected to significant forces in the birthing process. In some babies, this can have a profound effect on essential aspects of their feeding or development.
Our Osteopaths will take a full history, including discussing your pregnancy and your child’s birth, before examining your baby to arrive at a working diagnosis. We will discuss this with you before any treatment commences, as well as any potential need for referral or the involvement of other healthcare practitioners.
Our treatments of infants use extremely small, almost imperceptible forces, with constant feedback and consultation with the parent/caregiver throughout. We will NEVER perform forceful ‘manipulations’ on infants or children.
