Paediatric Osteopathy

At Oldfield Osteopathic Clinic, our osteopath Alex Earle has a postgraduate diploma in Specialist Paediatric Osteopathic Practice. He has gained additional skills, training and experience in working with children (including babies and infants), their families, support networks and other health professionals to improve their health and wellbeing.

Osteopaths with a focus on paediatrics see children from birth to 18 years old. Within the clinic here in Oldfield Park, families ask us for information on the normal growth and development of children, assistance after a traumatic birth, all the way through to teenage sports injuries. Alex Earle has the capability of managing complex cases and recognising potential ‘red-flags’ within  children and babies.

As with all patients, we go through a case history discussion and perform a physical assessment before we explain any proposed treatment. We always need your informed consent before undertaking any treatment.
