Children and adolescents often push their bodies to the limit, or sometimes they simply play too many computer games with slouched posture.  In either case it is not uncommon for children to present to osteopaths experiencing pain as they grow.

Treating children for falls, sporting accidents or poor posture may reduce the impact that such things have on their adult body.  Parents may notice their children limping, favouring a limb, complaining of head aches, or have unusual spinal curves. Osteopathy may offer treatment for many conditions children experience.
