Looking for an osteopath for your baby in Mernda or Doreen?

At Bodywell we believe it is important for our practitioners who treat children under six years of age to have further education. You can be assured that all Bodywell practitioners who see young children have either completed  short-courses, in house training or post-graduate training in paediatrics. 

Our practitioners recognise the particular stresses on the body that babies and toddlers may experience as they grow. Stresses associated with birth, childhood accidents and falls, or rapid growth changes can create or contribute to physical problems that place stresses on the growing body.

As osteopaths we see a range of paediatric conditions that may include but aren’t limited to:

  • Families seeking information on normal growth and development of babies.
  • Babies needing assistance after birth.
  • Babies and toddlers who are delayed with rolling, crawling and walking.

Our osteopaths will ask lots of questions to obtain a thorough history about your child’s development. The practitioner will then use gentle movements and play based activities to assess your baby or toddler. The osteopath then will formulate a treatment plan based on their examination findings and will use age appropriate manual therapy techniques to treat your child. They will also provide exercises you can do with your baby or toddler at home. Your osteopath will provide advice on things you can implement in your child’s life to help them.

Our osteopaths work alongside a network of practitioners including GPs, Maternal Child Health Nurses, Lactation Consultants, Child Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Naturopaths, and Paediatric Dentists to help manage your childs’ overall physical and emotional wellbeing. At times a referral may be necessary to get the best outcomes for your child.
