Cranial Osteopathy Helps Prevent Growing Pains Naturally: Osteopathic physicians, specifically those trained in cranial osteopathy, can apply techniques to release the tensions that create strains in the body as it grows.
Asymmetry in the body—whether side to side or front to back—can create asymmetric growth in children, leading to conditions like growing pains, scoliosis, headaches, Osgood-Schlatter disease and more. Vision problems and teen acne can also be exacerbated by structural imbalances.
Osteopathic physicians, specifically those trained in cranial osteopathy, can apply techniques to release the tensions that create strains in the body as it grows. This helps to minimize the discomfort of growing pains in children without medicine, wraps or rest.
Not all osteopathic physicians provide osteopathic manipulative therapy in their practices and fewer have enough experience to reverse some of the complicated patterns of imbalance that have at least a partial basis in the head. It is important to find an osteopathic doctor who is trained in cranial osteopathy and uses it daily to address the common childhood and adolescent problems associated with asymmetry with only their hands.
