Osteopathy doctor for kids

Hallo everyone,

My daughter is 3months old. And she always turns her head to the right side, if I try to put her head straitgh or I turn her head to the left, she is unhappy and cries. And of the head bone structure I am looking for a good osteopathy doctor in zurich oberland.

Any advices would be really helpful.

Many Thanks!

Re: Osteopathy doctor for kids

My daughter had similar symptoms. We didn't go down the osteopathy route as I don't find the theory behind it terribly convincing. Instead our pediatrician prescribed several months of physiotherapy (which helped a lot!) along with an evaluation at the children's hospital to see if she would need a helmet. In the end she did have to have the helmet, but only for a few months and it didn't bother her one bit. In fact we had more fuss when it was time to take the thing away...!

There can be several different causes of the same symptom though, some of them needing different treatment than others, so please get your daughter's pediatrician involved rather than jumping straight to osteo or physio. He or she will also be able to recommend an osteopath or physiotherapist who is used to working with newborns.

Thank you MathNut !

So you think Physiotherapy is better than Osteopathy..
I will talk again to my daughters doctor, but she always says that all is fine and that I am too much worried..

Thanks again!

Our son had the same issue. It sorts itself out once they get moving around. Try not to get too worried.

In most cases yes, but that really does depend on what's causing it.

I am a bit concerned by the fact that the OP's daughter cries when you turn her head to the left. Mine never did that, she just turned her head straight back to the right. To me the crying sounds as if there could be a real problem. Or perhaps not - perhaps the OP just has a more vocally assertive baby than mine! But I would certainly mention it again to the pediatrician and have her take a look.

In the meantime try to rearrange your daughter's life a little - move her crib to the other side of the room, or simply place her the opposite way round in it - so that the most interesting things for her to look at are on her non-preferred side. When you approach her to talk to her or pick her up, approach from that side, and so on.

Re: Osteopathy doctor for kids

Thank you to neddy and MathNut !

During the day I try to put her head straight or to the left side and with support because she still trys to turn her head to the right side. but during the night its impossible to change , if she is not on her right side she just cries and is very unhappy and doesnt go to sleep.
I contacted her doctor and trying to get an appointment as soon as possible.

Dont know what I could do more in the meantime.

Thank you to all.
