Osteopaths see children of all ages for musculoskeletal and neurological care, movement concerns, positioning and postural issues. I work with children who have no injury or condition, as well as those needing rehabilitation after injury or post- surgery. I also work with children with long term health conditions, physical disabilities, growth and movement issues.

When working with children or babies osteopathy uses a very gentle, soothing approach to treatment. The techniques are non-invasive, involve gentle movement placing the joint and soft tissues into positions of ease whilst using the babies own breathing and general movements to help facilitate the changes. The treatment room always has lots of books and toys, I strive to make relaxing, comfortable environment for both the child and parents.

I have vast experience treating children of all ages from newborns (no baby is too young) through to teenagers and find working with children to be a true joy.
