This is a different type of treatment pioneered by Dr William Sutherland in the 1930’s. It is an extremely gentle approach which some of the osteopaths at these clinics may feel appropriate to use on some problems. If you particularly want cranial treatment or not, please let us know. It may for example be used for digestion problems or to help relaxation.
With this very gentle, subtle form of treatment, the patient is usually fully clothed, although it may be necessary to move or remove (with permission) some outer garments so we are able to properly examine and diagnose. This approach is also sometimes referred to as craniosacral therapy due to the fact that treatment is often focussed on the head and sacrum (the wedge shaped bone at the base of the skull).
For more information regarding this treatment, please call The Bexley Osteopathic Clinic today on 01322 529 326.
All problems with children should be checked out and although osteopathy like many therapies is not going to be appropriate for very serious medical conditions in the way a doctor/hospital is, it has been used for a long time by many thousands of people as a gentle, safe part of their healthcare for other problems. We have provided thousands of treatments for issues such as digestion problems and helping to with relaxation and sleep.
Overall, the clinics have treated a very large number of babies and children for a wide range of complaints. The patients often come via word of mouth from parents, health visitors, NCT groups etc. We have four osteopaths in our team with a special interest in treating children with decades of experience between them. At The Bexley Osteopathic Clinic we have a big enough team to make sure that you or your child will only be seen by someone with a particular interest or specialism for certain key areas – such as treating babies or children, not just a practitioner who is covering all areas.
Toddlers and older children can bring a favourite book or toy and be treated while quietly playing, being read to or being cuddled by their parent or guardian. We want to be able to offer you the best treatment and best value for your time and money, so if your child is quite hyperactive or less cooperative, please consider when he/she will be able to settle down enough to be treated. Often it helps to book the appointment for a time when you know your child is not likely to be tired or hungry.
Please remember that legally, children must be accompanied by a parent named on the birth certificate or by a legal adoptive parent / guardian.
