Babies and toddlers may suffer from a variety of common ailments and conditions. Where conventional medical approaches focus on managing symptoms typically with drug treatments, instead osteopathy aims to investigate the whole body and diagnose the root cause via assessing the body’s inherent communication system, the neurology.
An abnormal head shape, for example, is typically caused by an imbalance in the way the cranial bones function, which could be due to a difficult birth. This can also cause sleeping problems commonly associated with a hormonal imbalance involved within the circadian cycle including the adrenal glands above the kidneys and the pineal gland within the cranium. Other examples such as learning delays, recurrent ear infections, latching issues, colic, turning the head to one side etc also have connections with the cranium and elsewhere via mechanical and neurological relationships.
To fully resolve symptoms, the principle of cause and effect must be applied and it is paramount to examine the whole body in order to determine the causal links – what body tension is a causal issue and what body tension is a compensation?
