Problems with posture in adolescents

 

osteopathy procedure on a child

Carrying heavy school bags and increased use of computers can cause postural problems that may become more difficult to address as your child gets older.

 

What can I do as a parent to spot problems with posture?

 

Signs to look out for, which indicate an early problem with posture include:

 

  • Excessive slouching
  • Asymmetry in the shoulders (one shoulder
    higher or more forward)

  • Curvature of the spine
  • Feet turning in/out

Check your child’s shoes – do they wear out quickly on one side more than the other? This can also point towards postural imbalance.

 

 

New-borns

 

The process of birth has quite an impact on your new baby.  We recommend that every new born has a session with a trained and experienced cranial osteopath to detect any mechanical disturbances as soon as possible.

 

We recommend a check up within the first  4-6 weeks as the cranial base begins to fuse and harden from three months onwards.

 

Our education included 2 years of paediatrics and cranial osteopathy, in addition to our post-graduate training.
