TREATMENT FOR BABIES
We treat many babies for a variety of conditions, primarily using cranial osteopathy
We also offer specialist Respiratory Physiotherapy for babies and young children with bronchiolitis (see below).
RESPIRATORY PHYSIOTHERAPY FOR BRONCHIOLITIS
Bronchiolitis is common in infants and young children and affects the lower respiratory tract. Symptoms are initially similar to those of a cold and include a runny nose and cough. It can then, as the infection progresses, cause fever and a dry, persistent cough and the child often experiences difficulty with feeding and sleeping. After this, baby starts to produce excess mucous and the cough becomes wet and it is now that chest physiotherapy can be most effective.
Chest physiotherapy clears the lungs helping baby to breathe more easily, sleep and eat. Treatment will help reduce the intensity of the disease and help baby recover more quickly.
If you suspect your baby may have bronchiolitis, please first visit your GP for a diagnosis.
