Just like with adults, kids can experience aches or pains that prevent them from doing the things they love. What makes children different from adults is that their anatomy and physiology is still going through a growth and development period which affects all of their muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves, organs.
As your child grows their brain and body are learning to navigate new experiences and new ways to use their body. In the space of only a few years most children will learn to crawl, walk, run, jump, climb trees, ride a bike, swing off monkey bars and learn a myriad of other skills along the way. Our osteopaths understand the unique challenges young bodies face and are well equipped to deal with all ages from toddlers right through to adolescents.
