Osteopathy: Enhancing Childhood Well-being

As parents, we always strive to provide the best care and support for our children’s health. Your beautiful physio Sally is no different, as she looked to Osteopathy to help her son Josh. Here is her heartwarming story of her 3-year-old son.
Sally’s son Josh was recently having some resistance to transitioning out of nappies to sit on the toilet to do his “big boy business”. Instead he preferred to stand and liked the comfort of his nappy to do so.
Not knowing what to do to get over the hurdle, a friend recommended Sally bring Josh to our Osteopathy clinic. Her friend’s daughter had had great success with our hands on treatment to assist with a similar toileting resistance. In the case of her friend’s daughter, she was wanting to lie down on her tummy wearing her nappy rather than sit on a toilet.
I find these situations are quite common in our clinic and there is lots we can do to help.
After attending our Osteopathy clinic just two times Sally’s son had great results. I used a light hands-on approach and treated his whole body. I also offered some advice to help him with his transition from toilet resistance to toileting with ease. The change was enormous and in just two treatments we had success! Little Josh was sitting like a big boy on the toilet. All of his systems were working seamlessly. This was a huge win for the whole family.
Another thing Sally had noticed was Joshy was much happier in general. Even kindergarten drop offs that had always been filled with tears had turned into drop offs with a smile. Little Joshy was thriving. What a great result!
If you think your child could benefit from Osteo treatment too please get in touch. I would love to help you and your family also.
