Osteopathy is an approach to examining and treating the posture and mechanics of the body in order to promote self healing. We treat back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, sciatica and much more.
We also use Cranio sacral osteopathy which is an extremely gentle yet potent part or our work, it can be used in many different ways but is particularly relevant in the after effects of difficult births,dental work and head injuries. Many young children do not recover from the mechanical stresses of birth, the results of which include such conditions as colic, behavioural and sleep disturbances.
When osteopaths examine babies areas of tension are often found in the spine or head, which are indications that the baby is uncomfortable. A baby cannot complain of backache or headache, and will typically express this by crying and being unsettled or irritable
In a research study conducted by Clive Hayden into the effects of cranial osteopathic treatment on babies, some parents perceived the following changes in their children’s behaviour: Reduced colicky crying, improved sleep, less unsettled irritable behaviour and increased quiet happy spells.
