Pediatric osteopathy is a gentle, natural and exclusively manual therapeutic method, where the manual therapist listens to the baby’s body with his hands.
The objective is to eliminate much of the tensions and dysfunctions that can affect the newborn, restoring functional balance to the child and facilitating a correct evolution at each stage of its development, preventing future pathologies.
There are several factors during pregnancy, the birth process and its first months, which can affect the health of the baby, where it has to endure great compression forces during the course of the trip through the maternal pelvis.
If the pressures and tensions that we receive during birth are not solved alone or with the help of manual therapy, the whole structure of the baby can be organized around those tensions that can be both structural, and some possible delay in the maturation of the children Systems: respiratory, nervous, circulatory, digestive, immunological, etc. that may even interfere with their future development.

*Infant colic, constipation, gas …
*Respiratory tract infections: mucus, cough, colds, bronchiolitis …
*Difficulty falling asleep, irritability
*Disorders of the spine
*Mechanical dysfunctions that can block the ideal neuro-sensorial-motor development.
*Difficulty learning, development and behavior.
*Delay in stages of crawling, turning …
