Exploring Pediatric Osteopathy

Pediatric osteopathy is a specialized field within osteopathy dedicated to the well-being of infants and children. Given the unique and ever-evolving physical structures of babies and kids, which constantly shift and develop, they might experience periods of discomfort due to growth. This period of constant change necessitates a specific and gentle osteopathic approach. Our pediatric osteopath will sit down with you to discuss any issues or concerns you may have about your little one. Following a thorough assessment, your osteopath will recommend a tailored treatment plan based on the whole picture. Osteopathy’s holistic nature often means that while an issue might appear in one area, the treatment may encompass the whole body — after all, everything is connected!

Nurturing Your Baby's Well-Being through Osteopathic Care

Osteopathy is a branch of medicine that goes back hundreds of years. Its focus aims to treat an array of conditions using the gentle manual manipulations of bones, muscles, and ligaments. Osteopaths understand the intricate between your body’s structures and their intended functions, enabling them to make adjustments that enhance overall functionality. At Oona, we specialize in delivering osteopathic services tailored specifically to the needs of infants and young children within Newmarket. Our highly trained professionals can assess any concerns your child may be experiencing, and can perform a series of gentle adjustments to help them feel their best.

How can a Pediatric Osteopath help my baby?

Pediatric osteopathy can be so helpful in treating many of the common concerns that often arise in babies and young children. It’s not just mamas who can be traumatized by the birth process, it can affect your newborn too. The process of birth, even an uncomplicated one, can be stressful for newborns. Labour and birth involve a lot of compression and rotation. This is particularly true for posterior births, prolonged pushing, or instrument assistance (forceps, vacuums, etc.). Even if the birthing process was by all accounts straightforward, the natural compression and rotation during birth can trigger systemic issues in your little one. These issues may present as feeding difficulties, gassiness, discomfort, and disrupted sleep patterns. Following a gentle physical assessment, our pediatric osteopath will gently administer therapeutic movements and stretches to help alleviate these symptoms. Noticeable improvements can be seen after a single session, enabling both you and your little one to get back to enjoying your time together.

Other issues that can be helped by paediatric osteopathy include:

  • Aches and pains
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Excessive irritability and prolonged crying spells
  • Posture-related matters
  • Difficulties with feeding

Common Questions About Pediatric Osteopathy

In addition to correcting movement patterns, we commonly treat babies for gas, constipation and digestive issues, colic and latch/feeding issues, among others.

Some babies have a hard time turning their head one way or another and osteopathy can be very helpful in assisting them to return to normal motion and function. This improves breast or bottle feeding, as well as overall wellness for your little one.

You can consult an osteopathic practitioner from the first days of your baby’s life, or as needed according to the appearance of symptoms or concerns.

The first visit is the longest and includes a thorough history of the birth and baby’s development. Although the focus in treating newborns is often on the head, the osteopath treats the whole body and can be aimed at the spine, the diaphragm, the upper and lower limbs, and the gut itself. Babies and infants are very receptive to osteopathic treatment.
