How can osteopathy help babies and children?

Osteopathy can treat babies and childrenAs with adults the child's skeletal system is also prone to stresses and strains being placed upon it. Babies during delivery are put under numerous stresses to be able to descend through the birth canal and be born. Sometimes these pressures are not resolved during suckling and crying in the first few days or weeks and the child may experience retained tension. Osteopathy works gently within the cranial approach to aid the release of any stresses allowing the baby to be more relaxed and settled.
