Paediatric Care

The birth experience may leave babies with underlying musculoskeletal strain and the stress of this may contribute to colic, feeding difficulties, sleep problems and other issues. At The Health Formula, we provide Osteopathic treatment to help babies and young children by using a combination of soft-tissue and joint articulatory techniques and craniosacral therapy. 


Cranial Osteopathy is the name given to a subtle and refined approach to Osteopathy that uses a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and strain in the head, neck and throughout the body. Techniques using light touch are used to support the re-balancing and release of these areas of dysfunction. We consider all aspects of health and development when assessing and treating our young patients.

Osteopathy helps with the musculoskeletal components of:

Feeding and attachment difficulties



Digestive problems

Stiff neck

Flat areas and misshapen head

Sinus and ear infections


Excessive crying

Osteopathy for Children & Teens

As children grow and explore their environment, falls and bumps can lead to injury. It is important that these strains don’t have an ongoing effect on their musculoskeletal growth and development. Osteopathy can help to resolve these problems.


The teenage years are a busy time full of studying and sporting events, all to be navigated whilst hormones fluctuate. The rapid growth associated with hormones can put stress on the musculoskeletal system. In a technology-driven world, many hours are spent sitting, which can lead to significant postural stress. Osteopaths can help treat strains, give postural advice and management strategies for injury prevention.

Conditions for children we commonly work with:

Back Pain


Headache and neck pain

Knee pain and Osgood Schlatter's

Muscle strains

Sports injuries
