Depending on the problem that you are visiting us for, and the age of the child, some of the things we may ask you about could include pregnancy and birth details, developmental milestones, feeding and bowel function, play activities, social interaction and schooling. We will also leave plenty of time for your questions and to understand the expectations you may have from your visit to us.
The treatment for babies and young children is gentle and normally consists of rhythmic movement, massage and subtle articulation of the cranial bones. None of this is painful. We are happy to work alongside other healthcare professionals providing there is good communication and information sharing. Almost ALWAYS there is some homework given so that you can maintain and improve on the work done in the treatment sessions.
Alex Earle has undertaken specialist postgraduate training in the anatomy and physiology of babies and children, the assessment of developmental milestones and has worked with complex paediatric cases as part of a multidisciplinary team.
