Treating Babies and Children

We love to work with children and babies. Dr. Courney uses a range of Osteopathic and manual therapy approaches to treat injuries, muscular-skeletal abnormalities and postural dysfunction.  She also looks at improving breathing, digestion, sleep and behavior using manual therapy, breathing training, diet and natural remedies.

New born babies often benefit from gentle Osteopathic treatment to release inter-uterine and birth related tensions in the muscles, tendons and other soft tissues of the body.

The most common types of problems we treat include

Muscular-skeletal and Postural Abnormalities

Torticollis- neck tilted to one side and restricted mobility to the other side.

Plagiocephaly -abnormal head shape

Postural abnormalites- including scoliosis, foward head position.

Pains and injuries- of all types.

Breathing Issues

Asthma and Allergies

Mouth Breathing

Snoring

Sleep Issues

Poor sleep and restless sleep

Sleep breathing disorders

Digestive Issues

Constipation and diarrhoea,

Colic and reflux
