OMT can Benefit a Number of Pediatric Conditions

While every patient is different, studies have shown newborn children treated with OMT experienced:

  • Reduction in plagiocephaly (flat spots on baby’s heads, which are more common these days with baby’s being advised to only sleep on their backs) – osteopathic manipulative treatment for flat head in baby’s has proven very effective with extremely noticeable results. 
  • Reduction in torticolis (where the baby’s head prefers to look in one direction only).
  • Improved breast-feeding.
  • Reduction in infantile colic (inconsolable crying).
  • Reduction in otitis media (middle ear infections).
  • Reduction in reflux
  • Improved asthma symptoms.

Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy for Babies

OMT can treat a huge range of pediatric conditions to relieve your baby such as discomfort and ongoing pain. These special treatments focus primarily on supporting and balancing your child’s nervous and musculoskeletal systems. The neuromuscular system plays a very important role in keeping the rest of your infant’s body systems in balance. Changes, abnormalities, or dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system can have a huge impact on other organs and systems of your baby’s body.
