Caring for the Whole Family - Why Might You or Your Little One Need to see an Osteopath?
Guest Blog by Laura Fishlock Osteopathy
Ever wondered why you might take your little one to see the Osteopath? Or maybe even why you would need to see an Osteopath yourself.
Osteopathy is a safe and effective hands on therapy used in the diagnosis and treatment of various injuries and health conditions. It can be used in acute and chronic pain management and can be used as prevention to keep you pain free and moving better.
Just like adults, our little ones are sometimes in need of a little Osteopathy to help with past trauma and injury, this can occur during the birthing process or as they develop and learn to stand on their own, taking a stumble or two along the way.
Why might I bring my child for treatment?
Children and babies are forever taking a tumble or bump as they learn movement patterns as they grow and develop. Although at the time a small knock or a few tears might not symbolise much, this is often the starting point for imbalances and compensatory patterns to begin. We commonly see babies for birth trauma and unsettledness bought on by growth spurts, whilst in infants through to adolescents the injuries mimic those of adults, so we are more likely to see muscle injuries, strains and sprains.
Osteopathy is suitable for all ages and safe in the treatment of babies and children. Cranial Osteopathy uses gentle touch to restore balance, as well as reduce pain and discomfort experienced by your little ones. Osteopaths are highly skilled in the diagnosis of musculoskeletal imbalances from muscles, tendons and ligaments to fascial connections located throughout the body.
