Cranial Osteopathy may help to optimise a baby’s physical function by releasing tension within the membranes and restoring overall well being.
Trauma during pregnancy and birth may cause problems for a child as it develops, as well other factors such as rapid growth-related changes, accidents and falls and sports-related injuries. The Willow Clinic provides tailored osteopathic treatment for a whole range of issues which can affect children.
The upmost care is given to provide treatment that you and your child will be comfortable with. As babies and children have less mature joint structures than adults, we only treat them using age appropriate techniques. In line with Osteopathy Australia and the majority of the osteopathic profession in Australia, we do not support the use of spinal adjustments (“cracking”) with babies and young children. You can trust that your Willow Clinic osteopath will determine the very best course of treatment for your child and consider referring them to other medical/health practitioners if it’s in the child’s best interests.
