Baby osteopath brisbane

Baby Osteopath BrisbaneBabies are an amazing gift and bring so much joy to a family. However, a baby that is unhappy, over-tired or distressed can affect the whole household.  There are a vast array of issues that a baby and it's parents can experience in the first 12-24 months following birth. Although crying is normal during the newborn period, if you feel that your baby may be experiencing something beyond the usual "newborn fussiness", Osteopathy is a gentle option to balance the nervous system of babies and children.

Our Osteopath, Dr Emma Kopcikas has a special interest in assisting Brisbane babies and children with gentle Osteopathic techniques.

She has extensive training and experience treating pregnant women, babies and children and enjoys applying very gentle techniques to balance the nervous system, which in turn calms the body and aligns its structures.


Common reasons why parents bring their babies and children to see our Brisbane Osteopaths :

  • Colic
  • Reflux
  • Latch / feeding difficulties
  • Tounge or lip tie
  • Flat or misshapen head
  • Sleep problems
  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Stiff or wry neck
  • Constipation or digestive problems
  • Excessive crying or inability to settle
  • Following a difficult birth eg. Emergency caesarian, long labour, use of forceps, vacuum extraction, difficult birth position etc


What to expect during your baby's osteopathic session

Initial Osteopathic consultations for babies are for up to one hour, where we really get to know you and your child. We take a comprehensive health history before doing any hands on work to ensure that we assess your baby and his / her unique situation in a holistic manner.

Dr Emma then uses a series of very gentle techniques that balance the nervous system and address any areas of imbalance in the musculoskeletal system. This may have a flow on effect to asisst imbalances in other organs and systems of the body.

Follow up consultations are for half an hour. Emma enjoys working as an Osteopath treating babies and children and has joined the team at Vibe Natural Health in Brisbane so she can work alongside a team of family focused team of Naturopaths, Nutritionists, Chiropractors, Acupuncurists and Massage therapists, dedicated to looking after the health of you and your children.
