Children

At ONE HEALTH Clinic, we recognises the particular stresses on the body undergone by children as they grow from babies to teenagers. Our Osteopaths in Port Macquarie in particular, has developed an approach to work with children of all ages.

 

We treat children and teenagers for a range of conditions. Effective early treatment can prevent other problems from occurring.

 

Osteopaths commonly treat children with musculoskeletal & developmental problems. A range of problems may interfere with the normal development of a child. Trauma during pregnancy and birth, childhood accidents and falls, or simply the rapid changes of the body’s growth can create or contribute to problems associated with bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Other issues faced by children include posture problems, inflammatory conditions and sporting injuries.

 

At ONE HEALTH Clinic, we will work with you and your child to plan the best way forward. We will:

  • Examine and diagnosis problems and before treatment commences

  • Prepare a comprehensive case history of your child

  • They will complete a physical examination to determine which type of treatment is suitable.

  • If a referral to other health care practitioners is needed, we will arrange this.

  • We will also offer advice on nutrition, general health, posture and exercise.

 

Osteopathic care is safe, gentle and effective without the use of drugs or surgery. It can assist the young body to adapt to growth-related changes which can prevent other health problems. It can help your baby grow into a healthy child, and ultimately, a healthy young adult.

 

Conditions that our Osteopaths treat in children and teenagers include:

  • back pain and headaches

  • growing pains in muscles, bones and joints

  • postural problems including curvature of the spine

  • walking difficulties or foot pain

  • sporting injuries
