Osteopathy is an effective form of treatment for a variety of conditions presenting in babies, children, teens and perinatal mothers. We use a combination of gentle techniques to alleviate discomfort and support growth and development.
Core Clapton's paediatric service specialises in treating all children, from newborns to teenagers. It is normal for newborns to become unsettled in their first months of life and this can be related to a variety of things including feeding difficulties, trapped wind, reflux, constipation and physical tension or discomfort. As your child grows and becomes more active there are various physical stressors and strains placed on the body that can lead to injury. Our osteopaths will overlook your child's growth milestones, ensuring the healthy development of joint, muscles, ligaments and nervous system.
During pregnancy it is normal for the physical changes to lead to a variety of aches and pains from pelvic girdle pain to sciatica. After pregnancy it can take some time for the body to adjust and the demands of lifting, carrying and feeding your baby can result in discomfort that can be alleviated with gentle stretching and manipulation.
Osteopathy is a highly successful method for treating pain and improving normal functions of the body. After taking a thorough case history and examining your body, your osteopath will create a diagnosis and treatment plan. For the treatment of children and infants, osteopaths will use very gentle techniques to restore the body's healthy balance. For larger patients, a combination of massage therapy, joint manipulation, mobilisations and stretching are often applied to relieve from aches, spasms and feelings of stiffness. Your osteopath will also provide specific exercises and advice for the best practices to adopt at home, in the office or at night-time.
