Treating Babies with Paediatric Osteopathy

I love treating babies as a Paediatric Osteopath. Cranial Osteopathy is the most well-known osteopathic treatment for babies, but very gentle paediatric osteopathy techniques can also help release and balance other areas of physical tension. It can help soothe and relax babies promoting freer movement.

Babies come for treatment for many reasons. It could be muscular tension or imbalances manifesting as discomfort in the feeding position, always turn their head one way when sleeping, or have difficulties with digestion. Paediatric osteopathy can help improve and solve these issues making life easier for baby and parents.

The first appointment will include a chat with a parent to find out what issues the baby is experiencing and any relevant information about the birth. Following this initial discussion, I can then begin gently working with the baby. The babies I treat do not find the treatment uncomfortable and often fall asleep to the surprise of the parents! Following this initial treatment and depending on the issues being experienced by the baby, I may suggest further treatment sessions, sometimes one can be enough!

What can Paediatric Cranial Osteopathy help with?

Cranial Osteopathy can support the following:

  • Digestive Problems – Such as reflux, often caused by tension put on the digestive system and the body during delivery.
  • Flat Head Syndrome – Where the asymmetry of head shape is the result of cranial moulding during pregnancy or birth. It can also develop during the first few weeks if the baby has the tendency to lie on one side.
  • Breastfeeding/bottle Feeding Difficulties – Often the result of birth strains in the jaw, neck or chest from a long or traumatic delivery such as forceps, which may affect the baby’s ability to latch on and suck properly.
  • Torticollis – A relatively common condition causing a twisting of your baby’s neck. This can happen due to positioning in the womb or after a difficult childbirth. This makes it hard or painful to turn their head.
  • Constipation – Osteopathic treatment may assist in the management of your baby’s bowel function by relaxing the pelvis and coordinating gut function.

We can help with all of the above and offer cranial osteopathy for babies. Our osteopaths will use gentle techniques to help soothe and relax your baby and help ease their symptoms.

Professional, smart, clean, approachable, considerate.

Sandra listened to me, asked several questions, was interested in the history of myself and my wider family (it all contributes!) and then proceeded to assess what was required and what she recommends we do as a course of treatment.

Cannot recommend Sandra enough, she is fantastic, she has extensive knowledge, and fixed the issue that I had.
I have also attended one of the reformer pilates classes which was so much fun, I will definitely be back!

I was suffering with severe tennis elbow from crocheting, I could barely use my arm to write, crochet or use a knife. Sandra treated me using massage and acupuncture. This did the trick, the twinges have stopped and the severe pain has not returned. I am back to crocheting, writing and day to day activities comfortably.

Very thankful for the treatment, I would HIGHLY recommend.

I’ve been treated by Sandra for around 7 years & she somehow puts my broken body back together on every visit.
She’s a magician as well as a bloody good osteopath

Thank you very much for your professional osteopathy treatment. I felt very comfortable and pleased to have taken this course of action. See you again next week.

The clinic was bright, very clean and thankfully nice and cool. Super friendly, kind and understanding of the situation. My treatment was very thorough and I feel she did everything she could to release the tension in my neck. There was some soreness afterwards which was expected but I noticed in the evening that it felt so much better. I even got some sleep for the first time in nearly a week. I will be going back for follow ups as my problem is definitely not a quick fix but I’m amazed at how much better it feels to be honest! Huge thank you to the clinic and I highly recommend!
