As well as treating adults I have a special interest in babies & children, and am one of few qualified Children's Osteopaths with a Postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy (DPO).
I have worked with premature babies in the intensive care, neonatal unit and children's ward of a London hospital and in a children's osteopathic clinic.
I also treat expectant mothers for aches & pains in pregnancy, and offer mother & baby checks, working closely with midwives and Helath Visitors.
Paediatric osteopathy is based on the principle that all ailments whether minor or serious are as a result of an imbalance somewhere in the network of the body's systems.
A Qualified Paediatric Osteopath will use manual techniques to bring about profound changes within the child's body through gentle manipulation. This will allow the different body systems (the nervous system, the immune system, the muscular system and the circulatory system) to work effectively.
PREGNANCY & NEW MOTHERS
It is also helpful for expectant mothers to relieve aches and pains during pregnancy.
I also offer new-mother and baby checks, to ensure that baby is OK and to help the mother by releasing strains caused by both pregnancy and labour.
For more information on how osteopathy can help you or your child with a specific problem, please contact the clinic.
Back pain is one of the main reasons for absence from work, and can be severe and debilitating.
Back pain may not always occur immediately after injury as the body is good at adapting to injuries and accommodating them, however the disruption to spinal mechanics can lead to a build up of strain and tension over time, and these stresses within the body often cause problems in other areas as well as the back, such as undue fatigue, mood swings, depression, disturbed sleep, headache, period problems, digestive problems and vulnerability to infections due to a depleted immune system. Many of these improve during a course of osteopathic treatment.
OTHER CONDITIONS osteopathy can help with are neck & shoulder pain, Sciatica and Fibromyalgia, Frozen shoulder and Whiplash, Arthritic stiffness and Rheumatic pain, and minor sports injuries. It is used to treat digestive and circulatory problems, aches and pains in pregnancy.
