Osteopathy for infants
Osteopathic treatment is gentle, safe and effective for babies and children. Very specific, skilled, light pressure is applied where necessary to assist the natural ability of the body to release its stresses and tensions.
Osteopathic treatment is, by definition, manual. In children the methods used are nearly always very gentle, but nonetheless powerful, requiring special knowledge and skill.
To further deepen his knowledge, expertise and skill in his work with babies and children, Sander Sprong has had a two year course in paediatric osteopathy at the Panta Rhei institute.
Osteopathy may help your infant with:
- Excessive crying
- Problems with breastfeeding or drinking from bottle
- Reflux (milk coming back during or after the feed)
- Problems with burping
- Plagiocephaly, often seen in combination with restricted movement of the neck to one side
It’s impossible to list here all the conditions that osteopathy can help treat. If you don’t see your child’s problem or condition listed above, please contact Sander to discuss the possibility of treatment.
