Paediatric osteopathy for all ages in your childs development
Osteopathy is an alternative form of medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its connection to the overall health of the body. As osteopaths we aim to treat and prevent health issues by improving the body's natural ability to heal itself. By using a hands-on approach we address imbalances, restrictions, or dysfunctions in the body's tissues, restoring harmony and promoting overall wellness.
This stage of life is characterized by significant changes, but with this too the osteopath-patient consultation can begins to have a more useful dynamic, in that we can often discuss directly with the patient any issues and concerns and gather feedback. Invariably as they approach and enter high school ages we commonly see the following which can affect development, sometimes on more complex levels :
Here are some of the potential benefits that osteopathy may have for older children, teens and adolescent ages:
Adapting to body changes:
Osteopathic treatment can assist adolescents in adapting to changes in their body shape, proportions or other imbalances such as muscle tension or pain that may arise during periods of rapid growth during puberty. For adolescent girls, it can be helpful in managing menstrual pain and discomfort too and help promote healthier growth patterns.
Improved concentration and focus:
By helping to reduce stress, osteopathy consequently can help to improve concentration and focus, which can be helpful for students struggling in school. Osteopathy's comprehensive approach to health can support the teenagers' physical, emotional, and mental well-being during this transitional stage of life too.
Stress, tension and anxiety relief:
Osteopathic treatment focuses on the whole body and aims to balance various systems, potentially helping teenagers cope with stress and anxiety by improving the body's ability to cope. Osteopathy can help reduce physical tension and promote relaxation, potentially assisting with stress management of commonly associated issues such as helping manage headaches and migraines, providing a drug-free approach to pain relief.
Osteopathy's relaxation effects may also help teenagers with sleep difficulties, promoting better sleep quality and overall rest.
Improved sports performance and injury prevention:
For all types of sports activities, osteopathy can help to enhance performance by improving co-ordination, balance, range of motion and flexibility. Consequently both by strengthening the body and through the education provided during any treatment of optimizing posture, body biomechanics or musculoskeletal function osteopathy treatment contributes towards reducing the risk of injuries too. Osteopaths are also called uon by many involved in sports, both amateur and professional, to provide support during recovery from sports-related or other injuries.
Osteopathy's holistic approach can contribute to overall wellbeing in older children and adolescents, helping them maintain better physical and emotional health, also enhancing self-esteem by improving posture and reducing any physical discomfort and pain - this can be helpful for teenagers who are going through a period of self-discovery. Plus we may provide advice on nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle factors that can positively impact overall health.
A drug free approach to health issues:
Osteopathy provides a drug-free approach to managing multiple types of issues ranging from pain, such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches, which may be common in this age group. It is also effective in optimizing the body's self-regulatory mechanisms and the management of more complex issues, such as digestive health: Osteopathic techniques can support gastrointestinal function,potentially aiding in the management of digestive issues. Also respiratory support: Osteopathy may assist in improving respiratory function and can be helpful for adolescents with conditions like asthma or recurrent respiratory infections.
Osteopathy is suitable for assisting in the treatment of a range of sports, pain management, paediatric and occupation health related issues.
