At the clinic in Eltham, we are dedicated to helping young families. We provide osteopathy for babies, toddlers and young children for musculoskeletal and neurological care, postural issues, and movement and coordination concerns.
We examine movement, growth and development issues in newborns, infants, toddlers and preschool children. An assessment may involve screening a baby or child to review progress in meeting movement, coordination, activity and musculoskeletal developmental milestones expected by an age or stage.
We offer a range of clinical services to manage conditions or issues, including developmentally appropriate manual therapy treatments and education and advice on activities for maintaining or growing physical skills.
This may include advice on use of certain toys or equipment for movement and other skills needed in daily activities, and education for families on how to position or assist a child with musculoskeletal development milestones.

To ensure you and your child get the care you deserve, we work in association with other health professionals, including general practitioners, paediatricians, maternal and child health nurses, lactation consultants, paediatric dentists, dieticians, naturopaths, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and psychologists. This may include a referral to other health professionals in helping support children and their families.
