Osteopathy for Children and Teenagers

Many of you will know that osteopaths treat low back pain and sciatica (a nasty pain in the leg because of a trapped nerve) but that is usually for middle aged and "old people". Some may know that cranial osteopaths, like Gayle Palmer, treat babies and young children for birth trauma, recurrent chest infections etc.

But what about young people and teenagers? They can also struggle...

  • Postural assymmetries
  • Hyperactivity
  • Down's Syndrome
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia (clumsiness)
  • Problems concentrating
  • Behavioural problems
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Breathing problems
  • Allergies
  • Mood swings
  • Hormonal problems
  • PMT
  • Sports injuries
  • Poor sleeping patterns
  • Neck stiffness
  • Pain between the shoulder blades
  • Stress with exam nerves
  • Emotional upsets

Gayle Palmer has treated many, many young people over the last 20 years and has a lot of experience with their particular health challenges using Osteopathy. Find out more about Osteopathy with this link...

MOST children will benefit from taking Omega-3 Salmon Oil Plus from GNLD (exclusively available from the clinic) for general growth and development, esp those who have behavioural challenges and ADHD / autism. But is IS ESSENTIAL for All brain and body development, especially the heart.

For girls from about 12 years old a daily CALCIUM SUPPLEMENT is recommended by the World Health Organisation to help maintain their bone density too - DON'T be tempted to get a cheap and cheerful one off the shelf - they don't do the job properly and you don't want to add to the problems! Buy your KalMag now from the clinic.

These years are such a learning curve as the whole body grows and develops at different rates, on different levels - emotional, physical, spiritual, hormonal, mental, it is hardly surprising that difficulties crop up. If you aren't sure if she can help, or if Osteopathy may be appropriate, Gayle offers a FREE mini-consultation, often on the phone, to briefly assess whether she might be able to help you.
