Osteopaths understand that teenage years are a time of rapid growth which can present a series of problems that need addressing.

Common teen complaints include:

  • Spinal pain
  • Scheurreman’s Disease
  • Pelvic/Hip alignment issues
  • Scoliosis
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Headaches
  • Knee or Heel pain
  • Wrist & Hand injuries (often sports related)
  • Postural Assessment (computers!!)
  • Sports Injuries

Teenagers who participate in sports and recreational activities bear the increased risk of sprains and strains. Combined with carrying heavy books and bags to school, all of these factors contributes to an increasing number of children and teenagers with back & neck pain.

Computer posture is another major contributor to teenage pain. Explaining and demonstrating the benefits of good desk ergonomics to your teen can go a long way to preventing their discomfort (and means you don’t have to try and convince them yourself!).

Skilful diagnosis and treatment by our osteopaths can prevent bigger problems developing in the future, and also allows the body’s framework to heal naturally.  Self help strategies are always encouraged with teens to aide in long term results.

Dental Treatment?
Osteopathy may also benefit children or teenagers who are undergoing dental treatment such as braces/ retainers to relieve any associated symptoms such as headaches, upper neck pain, facial pain & jaw pain.
Osteopaths are extremely versatile and can easily tailor their treatment to suit the whole family. Rest assured, treating your teen is a gentle affair and safety is always our priority. We will always be happy to discuss any concern or reservation you may have before we do anything so you can relax and be safe in the knowledge that you are all in good hands
