Before, during and after birth, physical tensions can develop, especially in the case of birth malpresentation, birth with the help of vacuum extraction or caesarean section. This is an enormous strain for the delicate baby’s body. During growth, the children develop skills on different levels: they learn to grip, sit, crawl, walk, speak, etc.. In doing so, they naturally go through various phases of biomechanics and statics. This also includes falls and setbacks.
An osteopathic treatment can provide targeted support for the immature and growing tissues and thus help the child in its growth and development process. It improves general health and also strengthens natural resources.
Cranio Sacral Therapy, with its gentle manual impulses, is particularly suitable for newborns. With minimal pressure and fine movements, various “interference fields” on the skull bones, sacrum and meninges can be treated.
Indications for osteopathy in babies:
- Breastfeeding problems
- Skull Asymmetry
- Aftercare of children with problematic births
- Digestive problems: flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation, colic
