Pediatric Osteopathy

Pediatric Osteopathy

Osteopathy is an etirely manual medicine that endeavours to restore mobility of the body's structures and maximize the body's functions. The osteopath must have an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics to establish interrelations between the different elements and promote the overall mechanical balance of the body.

Babies are very receptive to osteopathic treatments. You can consult an osteopath from the first days of your baby's life. Constraints or bad positions incurred during pregnancy and childbirth, as well as interventions that could have happened during labor may have already created tensions or blockages in your child. You can consult preventively as early as possible or as needed, according to the appearance of symptoms or unwanted problems.

Osteopathy for newborns, babies and children can help with certain issues, such as those listed below.
