Pediatric Care Q & A

What are some common childhood health problems?

All children get sick or hurt now and then. Most of these childhood injuries and illnesses eventually resolve on their own. But some children struggle with stubborn symptoms. Any ongoing illness or injury needs an expert evaluation.

If your child is often in pain, he or she may have a chronic condition. In children, chronic health problems can include:

  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Recurrent infections
  • Developmental delays
  • Colic or reflux
  • Chronic congestion
  • Behavioral problems
  • Allergies and sensitivities

Each of these conditions requires special care. Restoration Osteopathic Medicine offers the expert attention your child needs. 

The providers begin with rigorous diagnostic tests. These tests help determine what's causing your child's symptoms. Once your provider identifies the root cause, they offer a customized treatment plan. 

What kind of pediatric care is available?

Your child may need medications, surgery, or various forms of therapy. During your consultation, your provider reviews your treatment options. They help you make an informed decision. If your child needs to see a specialist, the practice provides the necessary referrals. 

Restoration Osteopathic Medicine also offers osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). This hands-on technique can resolve many children's painful health concerns. OMT maneuvers tissues and joints back into their correct position using gentle pressure. This treatment provides drug-free pain relief for children of all ages. 

How can osteopathic medicine improve my child's health?

Conventional treatments often mask symptoms. Other therapies may focus on each separate region of the body. But if your child has chronic health issues, this patchwork approach may not be effective. Worse, you may be shuffled between different specialists who offer conflicting advice

Osteopathic medicine is different. Doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) treat the patient as a whole to resolve both acute and chronic symptoms. Their goal is to improve your child's well-being and prevent future health challenges. This systemic approach helps your child achieve lasting relief. 

When your child is sick or hurt, it's normal to feel scared. But Restoration Osteopathic Medicine provides compassionate care to get to the root of the problem. Call the office today or schedule an appointment online.
