Osteopathy for children, adolescents

teen and children

Osteopathy is a therapeutic method based on the gentle manipulation of the tissues of the body. Thanks to its manual approach, it aims to improve the functioning of an individual’s organism. Childhood and adolescence being characterized by very turbulent periods, the intervention of an osteopath remains essential. Our Firm Daniel Parent works in this direction by offering osteopathic care for children and adolescents in the city of Longueuil. We invite you to discover the many solutions that osteopathy offers to the problems that arise at these stages of life.

Osteopathic solutions to adolescent problems

Adolescence is a transitional phase between childhood and maturity marked by physical, emotional and hormonal changes. It is also distinguished by the multiple school activities and routines that require an ability of the body to adapt. This is why the osteopath that we are intervenes to provide consistent support to each problem that adolescents are going through.

Growing pains

Growth spurts can be very noticeable in some teens and pre-teens. This, in itself, has nothing negative for them, because the body knows how to properly adapt to these changes. However, by combining this transformation with other external conditions, they can be obstacles to harmonious growth. To help the teenager, the osteopath can propose the realization of an osteopathic assessment. This actually allows you to get in touch with him to understand his routine.

Similarly, we will be able to detect the factors that may be responsible for growth disorders. For example, during the check-up, it is possible to know if your teen already suffers from scoliosis. Reasons why osteopathy sessions and personalized advice from an osteopath are very essential to treat growing pain. Note that, far from prohibiting a type of practice to the adolescent, the objective is to prevent so that he can enjoy his growth serenely.

Ailments resulting from hormonal changes

In adolescence, hormones are the basis of many transformations of the body. At the level of the young boy, you can see an increase in his muscle mass and an enlargement of his shoulders and torsos. In the girl, you will observe wider hips and a developed chest. All this, added to the rapid growth, directly impacts the posture of the teenager. The osteopathic professional then intervenes to accompany him in this change in order to spare him back pain and exaggerated vertebral curvatures.

In addition, the osteopath uses gentle techniques to facilitate good blood circulation in adolescent girls with painful menstruation. This makes it easy to effectively relieve discomfort (stomach, headache, back pain) that occurs during these periods. Note that all the gentle manual methods used by an osteopath are carried out externally.

Problems caused by orthodontic treatment

Generally, an orthodontic treatment changes the structure of the dentition, which in turn can act on the overall posture of the individual. The osteopath therefore acts before orthodontic care to work on tensions so that treatment can begin in better physical conditions. During the care, we intervene first to relieve the discomforts caused by the orthodontic appliance. Secondly, we act to prevent postural stresses that could occur in the dental structure, skull and body.

The services offered by osteopathy to children’s problems

Just like the teenager, children’s bodies are subject to many constraints (falls, trauma, sports practices, etc.). Depending on the age and morphology of these, there are global approaches in osteopathy to overcome these tensions. Our osteopathic examination can be useful for example, if the child has agitation, behavioral and sleep disorders. The same is true of constipation, problems with posture and digestion. To treat this, osteopathic follow-up will be necessary in the case of hyperactivity or a learning disability.

This will also relieve the symptoms, discover the deepest problems in the little one. In addition, by appropriate cranial techniques, the osteopath can soothe a child, facilitate his concentration and guarantee him a good quality of sleep. Its gentle methods are also effective against asthma, ear infections and repeated infections. In addition, our intervention may also be required to relieve infant colic, reflux, congenital torticollis, regurgitations, etc.
