Benefits of Paediatric Osteopathy

Paediatric Osteopathy focuses on treating infants and children to offer support through all stages of growth and development. The process of birth, itself, can be very taxing on an infant, leading to tension patterns or strains; minor symptoms such as these can have a more amplified impact on function. During an osteopathic session, the practitioner will go through a specific set of tests with your little one to determine where the tension is. Then, the practitioner will apply very gentle techniques to provide release in the areas where tension has been found.

Osteopathy can help babies with:
- Latching Problems
- Reflux
- Flat Spots
- Colic
- Constipation
- Sleeping Issues

The progression from infancy to toddlerhood and beyond will result in more movement and independence, which may also lead to occasional bumps, bruises, and other functional wear-and-tear. These minor injuries sometimes create tension and restrictions in the movements and biomechanics of the child. Osteopathic treatment can help address these concerns, support a child’s development, and guide functional patterns and habits that will best serve them into adulthood.

Common Conditions Treated by Our Paediatric Osteopaths

Latching

Osteopathy provides a thorough assessment to take stock of how your baby could have a better latch. Our OMTs will provide treatment and education to help.

Proper Biomechanics

From learning to crawl, walk, and playing sports, tensions can arise that limit your little's movements and posture. Osteopathy is a gentle approach that can help.

Flat Spots

Flat spots can range from mild to advanced. Osteopathy can help treat some of the more common causes as well as providing support alongside helmet management.

Reflux

Reflux can be uncomfortable for your little one. Our Osteopathic Manual Therapists will do a thorough assessment to find the tensions needed to be treated to help.

Milestones Support

Osteopathic Manual Therapists are trained to support your child's development and address any concerns that you might have. Osteopathy is a safe and gentle option.

Reviews

I’ve never been to a chiropractor before but have been experiencing some pretty bad back pain and overall stiffness that finally led me to make an appointment. Dr. Emily Cugnet-Huber is kind, welcoming, professional, and SO knowledgeable. In our initial appointment she gave me such a detailed overview of a treatment plan we would focus on and was incredibly thorough in her consult. I can confidently say that Dr. Emily is someone I can absolutely trust with my care. Looking forward to my next visit!

I’ve been to a handful of chiropractors in Calgary and Dr. Yasemeen is definitely one of the best! Her approach to work on an inquiry to resolve it long term vs a quick adjustment goes a long way. Can’t recommend her enough.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr.Josh Luk for my neck and back pain. Because of my job, I humped my back all day long. I had pain from the neck to the lower back for a long time. I was not sure it could be fixed or feel better until I saw Dr.Josh. He was professional, informative, and considerate. The treatment he gave me reduced my pain so much and made me feel lighter from the pain. To see Dr. Josh was the best thing I did this year! I highly recommend Dr. Josh if you are looking for a great chiropractor!
