Osteopathy may be an ideal approach for the newborn and children. It is safe, efficient, does not have any contraindications, and can be applied from the first days of life. Furthermore, the specific, delicate techniques of paediatric osteopathy are not painful.
The Functional Technique, the Sutherland Technique and Cranio-sacral osteopathy are particularly recommended for disorders in babies and infants, and have no contra-indications. A check-up on newly born babies can be very useful in preventing future problems. Osteopaths specialising in early-infancy osteopathy work at our clinics.
As in the case of adults, every child is accepted and examined by a doctor. This is followed up by the osteopath who undertakes clinical observation.
