Osteopathy and Babies
Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle, non manipulative Osteopathic technique especially suitable for treatment of newborn babies and toddlers. Treatment allows the baby to function and develop without restriction, in a balanced and happy manner. During labour, contractile stress is applied as the baby progresses normally through the birth canal. Strain patterns may occur, especially if there has been a difficult delivery, assisted delivery (forceps) or a breech delivery. Soft tissue tension and restriction in the cranial bones, neck and upper back may result. Treatment aims to release this tension and restriction and stimulate the babies’ inherent self healing mechanisms. Osteopathic treatment may help to prevent chronic problems developing later in life, allowing your child to achieve optimal health.
Our experienced Osteopaths are trained to recognise conditions which require medical referral or referral to another Allied Health practitioner.
Remedial massage is another form of treatment offered at Croydon Osteopathy. You can make an appointment with Jeanetta Gogol by calling her directly on 0427757900.
