Why bring our child on an osteopathic visit?

Osteopathic treatment has been successfully done in neonatology for some time now. The techniques used provide, in fact, a delicate and gentle approach that causes neither pain nor discomfort.

In newborns, the dysfunction to be corrected is generally linked to the time of delivery (cephalo-haematoma, asymmetry of the face, skull and postural).

Osteopathy can be successfully applied in neonatal age as well as during pre- and post-natal periods, thus ensuring a positive and reassuring approach for both unborn and new mothers. Osteopathic treatment in newborns reduces gaseous colic, optimizes suction, sleep quality and breathing. In addition, in caesarean sections or for premature births, osteopathic treatment reduces the incidence of infections of the first airways.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a therapeutic science based on knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. He uses only manual techniques to treat dysfunctional mechanisms that prevent the various parts of the body from performing their normal and therefore natural functions. These manipulations applied to the skeletal, muscular, facial, cranial-sacral and visceral systems free the body from obstacles, blocks, mobility restrictions that prevent the good circulation of blood and fluids, the proper conduction of the nerves and visceral function restoring the disturbed balances.


Osteopaths look for internal disharmonies to solve the problems of the newborn not only by treating the symptoms but also by looking for the cause. Osteopathic sessions, after an initial evaluation, have a variable frequency, being able to follow the newborn from birth throughout its growth path.

The importance of osteopathy

The osteopathic evaluation one month after the birth of the child is fundamental for its growth. From birth it is important to observe your children, going to identify any asymmetries and diseases. Thanks to the timely intervention you can then correct what could be a future flaw.
