Infant Osteopath Edmonton

The practice of Infant osteopathy, Edmonton, has grown in popularity over the last few decades as individuals are trying a more holistic approach to medicine. When a baby is born, the birthing process is not without risks and potential side effects to the baby. There are times when the baby’s body physically shows signs of having slight trauma caused by birth. This trauma can be corrected with infant osteopathy and the body’s natural healing processes..

Osteopathic Therapy for Children

Infant Osteopathy

The human body was designed to be a fluidly moving and working organism. However, there are times when muscles, bones, joints, and connective tissue within the body restrict this flow. A Manual Osteopathic Therapist uses very fine tuned palpation skills to find the source of tension or the root cause of imbalances within the body followed by gentle touch to rebalance the infant’s body.

Craniosacral Thearpy

For babies, the process of birth can be an intense experience. The bones in the skull are, by nature, not fully formed and fused prior to delivery. This allows movement in the skull for easier delivery. A Manual Osteopathic Therapist has been trained to gently relieve tension caused by compression of the bones in the head through cranial osteopathy and CranioSacral Therapy.

Traumatic Birth

At Pine Cone Health, we believe that every child should be assessed following birth to evaluate for any issue that may have arisen during the birthing process. When working on babies, the treatment methods we use are gentle and relaxing for the body. Our goal is overall total body health through gently manipulating tissues to bring about balance and self-healing.




Paediatric Osteopaths provide gentle therapeutic treatments to relieve your child’s pain and discomfort.

Benefits of Infant Osteopathy

Infants are known to cry to get needs met. When it comes to hunger or pain, this crying is the only way the baby has to alert their caretaker that they need help. However, many babies spend hours being “fussy” due to acid reflux, digestive issues, ear infections, and other ailments that stop them from sleeping properly. Infant osteopathy opens up and loosens the areas restricting the proper flow of fluid throughout the body. Some benefits include relief from:

  • Feeding difficulties
  • Constipation
  • Indigestion
  • Acid reflux
  • Sleep issues
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Colic
  • Tension from tongue tie
  • Unexplainable discomfort

Babies receiving treatment are typically happier, healthier, and overall less fussy.
