Osteopathic manual therapy is suitable for a wide range of different conditions and patients. It’s even gentle enough for children and infants. In pediatric applications, osteopathic manual therapy is often recommended for earaches, constipation, anxiety, muscle and joint pain, headaches, and breathing problems.
During osteopathic manual therapy, patients are relaxed and guided through various movements that help to relieve a wide range of ailments in the body. Because all systems of the body are connected, mobilization and movement of different areas can trigger responses throughout the organs, circulatory system, and nervous system. Every patient’s journey with osteopathic therapy is unique, and parents are encouraged to attend their child’s treatment sessions so they can offer insight on their child’s symptoms and help their children feel comfortable as they receive care.
The team at Calgary WOW Centre includes several osteopathic practitioners who cater to patients of all ages in our alternative medical clinic. Visit our website to learn more about the benefits of this type of therapy or to schedule an appointment for your child.
