See What Osteopathy Can Do For Your Child's Health—And Their Future!
The perfect primer for parents looking for holistic, non-pharmaceutical, and nonsurgical alternatives, Osteopathy for Children ensures that parents fully understand and appreciate their options in finding the perfect program of care for their children.
Osteopathy is a form of drug-free, non-invasive manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopaths work to reduce and remove the unseen forces of injury, balancing tissue to effect instantaneous changes in body tensions. Traditional osteopathic physicians recognize that injuries suffered in early childhood often don’t present their full effects until much later, often leading to pain, fatigue, and a host of other medical complications. In fact, the final mature adult skeletal structure of an individual is strongly affected by the influence of injury and trauma in early life.
Many of the persistent health problems that people face in their adult lives can be traced back to these long-forgotten traumas, particularly as conventional medicine continues to focus only on immediate, visible symptoms when diagnosing illness. With results approaching the miraculous, in terms of their immediacy and their efficacy, Osteopathy for Children brings an understanding of this holistic treatment style to the world, combining a pure understanding of osteopathy with years of expert experience in pediatrics.
Through Osteopathy for Children, you will:
• Explore the safe, world-recognized medical approach of osteopathy and make educated decisions for your child’s care
• Find answers not provided anywhere else—including how and why old traumatic injuries influence our bodies for years to come
• Learn from specific case studies of common problems, including before and after treatment photos
• Understand how to detect physical clues in your child, identifying possible sources of trauma
• Learn when, how, where and why to seek osteopathic care
