Osteopathy begins at birth
A mother and a baby must cope with the stresses of birth. The toddler may have frequent sinus, or ear and/or chest infections. The school child may have learning difficulties or have a bad fall or knock while playing. The student spends long hours hunched over the computer resulting in eyestrain, headaches and back/neck pains. Sports people push their bodies to the limit, overstretching ligaments and muscles and picking up injuries. Adult life is full of its stresses and strains be they physical, emotional or mental, all will take their toll resulting in illnesses from anxiety or depression, to asthma, to irritable bowel syndrome, to back or joint pain or many other conditions. In old age our joints stiffen, and our circulation may not be as good as it once was. These are the types of difficulties which an osteopath can help alleviate.
