Pediatric Osteopathy
What is Pediatric Osteopathy?
At Abaton we are proud to offer osteopathic care that caters to the unique needs of individuals at every stage of life, including pediatrics. Osteopathy is a holistic and hands-on approach to healthcare, focusing on restoring balance within the body to promote optimal well-being.
Osteopathy for All Ages:
Our skilled osteopathic practitioners provide gentle and effective care for patients of all ages, from infants to seniors. For our pediatric patients, we understand the importance of a specialized approach that considers the unique needs of growing bodies.

*** It is essential to treat a newborn within the first week of life, then weekly for the second and third weeks. Osteopathic bodywork can quickly address any birthing traumas and reduce the impact of any dysfunction later on. Newborn treatments target issues that may not be obvious yet but could affect development. Therefore, the benefits of regular check-ups for infants and children are vital.
