Cranial osteopathy can relieve a number of problems for your baby, such as feeding troubles that are the result of a sore jaw or cases of reflux that have cropped up because of an affected diaphragm. Treatments are usually given every few days to start with and then less frequently.
Certain types of baby head pains can also actually masquerade as colic or reflux.
Cranial osteopathy can also be excellent in helping with flat head syndrome. Together with home measures and advice, your baby’s flat head can be successfully dealt with before any permanent changes take place.
Many cranial osteopaths will also work on the tailbone as well as the skull, as the brain sack and fluid extend down the spinal canal and attach near the tailbone making it possible to influence the sack and the flow of fluid from this region.
