Who We Treat - Children
Children are always running around, playing and having fun, but as they grow up they encounter numerous challenges to their bodies such as falls and other accidents. At the Clapham Osteopathic Practice we find that children respond well to cranial osteopathy, often only needing a few treatments to resolve the problem. Lingering problems may be exacerbated by strains in joints, muscles and connective tissue, affecting the musculoskeletal system. Resolving the underlying strains may improve venous and lymphatic drainage, helping the body to heal itself.
Cranial osteopathic treatment is very gentle and safe for children of all ages. If a child is particularly nervous, treatment can be done without the patient undressing. Children will need to be accompanied by an adult.
If you are not sure whether cranial osteopathy is right for you and you would like to discuss treatment with us, please call our clinic or e-mail us with your queries.
Please be aware that osteopathy does not claim to cure medical conditions, however many patients find that osteopathic treatment helps to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility.
