PAEDIATRICS

 

How do we treat the babies and children?

The first rule that leads our paediatric physio treatments is to be painless and respectful with the babies. We intend to never force or make them cry otherwise they will tense up and the treatment will be much less efficient and comfortable for them.

This is the reason why we focus a lot on the first contact and we spend some time playing and interacting with them at the beginning of each session.

The "TOUCH" that we use is also very soft (craniosacral therapy, functional techniques, gentle mobilisations).

If we have to use stretch techniques we always stay beneath the discomfort threshold.

For the more neurological conditions we will mainly use the NDT (neurodevelopmental treatment) or also called Bobath Approach.

Another way  of respecting the babies, is to focus a lot on the promotion of the active motion during and after the session.

We emphasize a lot on the role of the parents between the sessions, this point is essential to conduct the treatment to its best.

We find that it's also crucial to manage the session in a kind of "play mode" style and keep creative and reactive with the babies. Our practitioners are able to adapt themselves to any kind of situation and be able to change their plans, positionings and tricks all through the session, because the manual treatment is not always easily accepted by the babies, toddlers and children.

At last, we always try to  keep a high level of happiness and positive attitude with our very young patients.
