Paediatric Osteopathy

Paediatric Osteopathy

Cura is dedicated to the well-being of not only our adult patients but also children. We understand that every child is unique, and their bodies are continually growing and developing.

Parents seek Osteopathic care for their infants and children due to various reasons such as: Post-natal assessments, Evaluations of posture, Difficulty with settling, Tongue-tie diagnosis and assessments, General discomfort and pain, Issues with constipation and bedwetting, Challenges with feeding and Management of flat head syndrome (plagiocephaly).

What is Paediatric Osteopathy?

Paediatric Osteopathy

Paediatric Osteopathy is a gentle and holistic approach to healthcare, specifically tailored to infants and children. We emphasize the importance of recognizing the individual needs of each child, as no two little ones are the same. Our skilled paediatric osteopaths are trained to assess and support the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, aiming to assist the body in its natural quest for health.

While we understand that parents often seek our services to address specific concerns, we want to emphasize that paediatric osteopathy does not make claims to treat specific conditions. Instead, our primary focus is on the broader well-being of your child. We believe that when the body is in balance, it has a better chance of healing and maintaining health on its own.

At Cura, our mission is clear: to nurture your child’s natural balance and aid in their normal movement and function. We believe that by assisting the body in maintaining its own equilibrium, we contribute to your child’s overall well-being.

Discover the holistic benefits of Paediatric Osteopathy for your child’s well-being and vitality

Paediatric osteopathy

Our approach encompasses the following key principles:

Gentle Techniques

To assess and address any areas of tension.

Whole-Body Care

For normal movement and function.

Supporting Development

Helping them to reach their milestones.

Empowering Parents

To support their child’s well-being at home.

Individualised Care

To create a personalised care plan.

Osteopaths focus on observing the movement patterns of your baby or child’s body. Any restricted areas might influence the body’s functionality and development. Osteopathic therapy aims to reinstate regular motion in muscles, ligaments, and joints, potentially enhancing your baby’s feeding and sleeping patterns. Our practice revolves around addressing the body’s mechanics rather than treating specific conditions. By improving joint mobility and resolving underlying issues, we aim to restore the body’s normal functioning.

During the initial appointment, the osteopath will discuss details about the pregnancy and birth, along with the child’s overall health. Subsequently, examinations will be conducted to assess joint movement, reflexes, and muscle tone.

*We do not claim that these conditions can be treated, but usually people come to see the paediatric osteopath to treat conditions like these.
