Children and sport osteopathic treatment

Active kids

Children need to grow with optimal mobility, strength and balance. Sport and exercise can place exceptional demands on their bodies. Children should be cared for by professionals who are fully aware of the needs of young growing bodies.

Before treating your child, our team of osteopaths may perform a comprehensive physical examination and, if necessary, refer on to other health care professionals. Our osteopaths may also provide nutritional advice along with strategies, exercises, and routines to help your child avoid further injury and stay healthy and active.
