Osteopathy for Children
Here at The Fertile Project, we have a passion for treating the littlest members of your family. When it comes to treating babies and children, the root cause of the presenting symptoms often stems from strains induced during birth or even in utero. Regardless of the mode of birth, significant forces are placed on a baby as they make their entrance into the world. These forces can result in strains and stress to the anatomy and physiology which can lead to a wide variety of symptoms.
Some of the more common reasons parents bring their babies in for treatment are: excessive crying, straining to poop, squirming when feeding, favouring turning their head one way, flattening of the head, difficulty latching, frequent hiccups, vomiting, reflux and difficulty with sleep and settling, to name just a few.
As the best osteopaths in Melbourne, it is our job to find and feel the strains that are present and to help return the tissues to a state of balance, helping your baby’s system rest and to allow for growth and development to occur without the stress and strain of unnecessary tension.
Your appointment will begin with a thorough case history before moving on to assessment and gentle treatment tailored specifically to your individual needs.
