Infantile respiratory physiotherapy
With infantile respiratory physiotherapy, we can treat respiratory infections such as bronchitis, bronchiolitis, and pneumonia.
The respiratory physiotherapy session will be based fundamentally on the secretions drainage and ventilatory re-education in order to improve ventilation, oxygenation, and overall respiratory system.
What do we treat mainly with osteopathy regarding our little ones?
The main reasons for consultation are regularly reflux issues, cholic, constipation, suction issues, irritability, cranial asymmetries or posture and movement preferences; when a child only turns his/her head to one side. The ideal situation in these cases is to carry out treatment as early as possible to benefit the correct development of the child.
As the child grows and once he/she starts taking first steps we can more often locate dis-alignments in the inferior limbs and feet. When the child reaches school age or adolescence, we take special attention to their backs and its correct alignment.
How is a session carried out?
Regarding children, the techniques we use are very gentle and respectful adapting the same to each child’s development stage.
During the first session, we will carry out a complete clinical history, gathering information about pregnancy, birth and infant’s evolution since his/her birth. Following we will carry out a manual examination on the child in order to identify the troubled areas that may be causing problems in the child’s proper functioning of his/her body. After reaching diagnosis the therapist will start the treatment guiding an adequate approach for each child.
