Osteopaths have an excellent range of approaches for babies and infants. We most commonly see babies that are: having trouble sleeping; are unsettled and crying; having difficulty moving their head to one side; and in pain. Our techniques are very gentle involving gentle movements, soft tissue work and cranial technique.
There are number of different reasons for babies presenting with the above issues, some of these include: colic, reflux and silent reflux, upper cervical (neck) dysfunctions, joint dysfunctions and tissue imbalances. We generally prefer that you’ve seen your GP with your little one before coming to see us so that they are also monitoring the situation. We know within a relatively short period of treating babies whether our approach will work (generally within 3 treatments) and if it hasn’t we will advise your GP.
