Osteopathy and Babies - why consult?

The time of birth is often the baby's first trauma.

Too long or too short labor will put too much or not enough pressure on the baby's skull and can subsequently disrupt the functioning of the cranial structures.

Sometimes it can be a difficult delivery and the use of spatulas, forceps or a suction cup will be necessary.

This can affect the good mobility of the joints of the bones of the skull and lead to immediate and subsequent functional disability.

Often, newborns are born with their heads slightly tilted, one eye closed more than the other, one ear more forward than the other, and the nose a little flattened.

It is possible to see a correction made on its own but in all cases the cranial balance is upset and there is a dysfunction which requires seeing an osteopath.

Gentle tests on the various physiological mobility of the skull, sacrum and abdomen will easily detect minor dysfunctions, the cause of all these ailments.

With an adapted and very gentle manual corrective treatment, your baby will regain his good health. Even if the baby does not present any apparent functional disorder, expert hands in osteopathic care will allow him to start life well.
