Newborn & Pediatric Health

The process of birth may result in structural changes that may or may not be observed by pediatricians. Gentle and precise cranial osteopathic treatment can help balance the skull bones and soft tissues of the infant and child’s body.* This helps restore proper function and movement, improve circulation, and help to balance the nervous system.* Osteopathy supports normal growth and development and promotes restful sleeping, and has a calming effect overall on the child.*

Osteopaths commonly see infants with:

  • Birth trauma (long and difficult birth, breech delivery, forceps or vacuum extractor use)
  • Colic and reflux (spitting up)
  • Musculoskeletal problems, including torticollis, shoulder and collar bone distortions
  • Growing pains
  • Neuro-developmental issues (delayed development, learning disorders, dyslexia)
  • Constant crying/irritability
  • Poor sleeping patterns
  • Breastfeeding difficulties (tongue tied, jaw imbalance)
  • Flat head syndrome (Plagiocephaly)
  • Recurrent ear infections
