assist healthy growth and good posture
Osteopathy can contribute significantly to strong and healthy growth in children. In conjunction with normal medical treatment, our approach can provide relief from persistent childhood respiratory problems, including asthma and chest infections. As children develop, and start carrying heavy school bags and spending hours hunched in front of computers, we can teach good postural habits in order to avoid long-term problems. What is now a slouch or an inward turn of the feet could lead to chronic pain in later life. And for teenagers, because we understand the demands placed upon an adolescent’s developing body, we can reduce the impact on their musculoskeletal system and even provide relief from ‘growing pains’.
