Cranial osteopathy is helpful to babies who, when born, suffer enormous forces, twisting and turning as they squeeze their way out. This pressure and stress on the baby’s head can cause slight compression which can be very painful to baby. This cranial treatment seeks to correct any damage or slight alterations caused during childbirth. Surprisingly feeding troubles, unsettled, griping and colicky symptoms can also be helped by this type of osteopathy.
