Infant & Child Osteopathy at H.T.C
Parents visit osteopaths for a range of reasons to support their child's health from new born through to 17 years of age.
Our osteopath uses a wide range of gentle hands-on treatment techniques that focus on releasing tensio, improving mobility and optimising function. She is also trained in very gentle techniques which are suitable for assessing and treating new born babies and infants.
Children's requirements differ depending on the stage of their development. As they grow from infants, toddlers, children to teenager, your osteopath will consider your child's individual needs, age and stage of development and adapt their advice and treatment accordingly.
Children, like adults, can be affected by general joint and muscle issues, which is one of the reasons people often visit an osteopath for a variety of other health care reasons which may benefit from osteopathic care.
As osteopathic care is based on the individual needs of the patient, it will vary depending on your child's age and diagnosis.
