Osteopathy for toddlers

Even if the birth took place without any particular problem, it nevertheless remains a test for both the mother and the baby. It is therefore recommended to consult very early in order to make an initial assessment. Here's why.

Infants can benefit from osteopathy for several reasons. Here are some of the most common reasons:
- Difficult childbirth: Childbirth can be a very stressful event for an infant, especially if the delivery was difficult or there were complications. Osteopathy can help address tensions and imbalances that may arise during childbirth and may affect infant development.

- Colic and reflux: Infants can suffer from colic and gastroesophageal reflux, which can cause pain and discomfort. Osteopathy can help treat these issues by working on tension in the digestive system and helping to regulate the nervous system.

- Plagiocephaly: Plagiocephaly is a deformity of the skull that can occur in infants, especially if the infant always sleeps on the same side or has a preferential head position. Osteopathy can help treat plagiocephaly by working on head and neck mobility.

- Sleep problems: Infants may have sleep problems, including difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.

- Osteopathy can help treat these problems by working on relaxation and reducing tension in the body.

In sum, osteopathy can help infants maintain healthy development and treat common health problems that may arise during their first year of life. It is important to note that osteopathy for infants is generally very gentle and non-invasive, and therefore can be a safe and effective option for parents seeking complementary care for their infant.
