Children's Osteopathy

Kane and Ross Clinics practice osteopathy for children on a daily basis.  The first consultation will last an hour.  A full case history, an examination and treatment will be given during the first consultation.  A treatment plan will be discussed and paediatrician, GP or other specialist may be integrated into the plan. At Kane and Ross we work closely with other health care professionals to provide an integrated approach for the children and babies.  Osteopathic treatment may involve cranial and structural techniques and children and babies are often relaxed during treatment.

Some of the most common conditions that we see are:

Osteopathic treatment for Childrens back pain, headaches, neck pain - Musculo-skeletal Problem

Children do experience aches and pains.  Children do get back pain and headaches and a child who is complaining frequently of aches and pains should be examined.  Treatment is similar to that of an adult but more gentle.  Diagnosis is important to find out why the child is experiencing pain and it may not be coming from the area of symptoms. A child with back pain may have a scoliosis or a foot or knee problem, the problem areas are often not in the area where they are experiencing the pain.

Children and Teenager Posture and Osteopathy

For children and teenagers posture is important, not only to reduce pain but also for presentation, interviews, and communication.  All children over the age of 8 who visit Kane and Ross Clinics are taught about posture both sitting and standing.  Sitting posture is particularly important due to their long hours they spend in front of i-pads, laptops and computers.
