Osteopaths use a wide variety of gentle techniques.
Newborn babies experience a degree of trauma during the birthing process. Difficult or long labour, inducements and forceps deliveries may cause more stress. Such traumas may result in soft tissue tension and restrictions in the cranial bones of the skull and/or other musculoskeletal dysfunctions.
Gentle osteopathic techniques may be used for muscular tightness or joint restrictions.
