Babies and Children

Treating babies, toddlers and school age children is a special interest we have at North Canberra Osteopathy. Anna and Betsy look after babies and children, and Betsy also has further training in scoliosis assessment and management for teens.

We see a range of conditions including musculoskeletal and neurological issues, movement concerns, breastfeeding issues, birth trauma, and scoliosis. Some of the most common things we see are neck rotation preferences and torticollis, and we can provide manual therapy pre and post tongue tie revision.

We have lots of techniques we use during a paediatric consult to relax and reassure our little patients. Often our baby patients fall asleep during their consult, or sleep right through it. Our techniques are gentle, relaxing and often a bit like a massage. There’s nothing fast or rough, and definitely no ‘cracking’ of anything! If you can bring your child’s blue book in for their first appointment that’s a great help to us.

Throughout your child’s appointment we will explain and guide you through what we are doing and why. We’re more than happy to talk to you before you book in, if you need some more information on how osteo might be able to help your child.
