Back to School Osteopathic Check-Up

Did you know osteopathic treatment can help remove the strain that's causing growing pains?

During rapid growth phases, the child’s bone lengthens before his muscles and tendons are able to stretch correspondingly. This can cause pain which is worsened if there is restricted movement elsewhere pulling even harder on the muscle or joint. Osteopathic treatment can straighten your child back up to help relieve the pain.

The aim of treatment is to increase the range of motion, increase circulation and improve lymphatic drainage to the restricted joints and other relevant tissues.

Research has shown that osteopathy for musculoskeletal issues in children is a safe modality when administed by osteopaths with appropriate qualifications.
