Paediatrics

PaediatricsTreatment is available for the newborn all the way up into the teens. Each age group presents different problems and Osteopathy is a very gentle and safe form of treatment.

It helps to support children physically and emotionally through different developmental stages of their lives, helping to relieve any physical strains, giving much relief to children and their families.

Osteopathy will facilitate the body’s natural ability to heal itself and children usually respond very well to Osteopathic treatment.
