We begin helping children by making a thorough evaluation, which includes:

  • Mother’s health before and during pregnancy
  • The story of your child’s birth
  • Evaluation of events leading to health or developmental issues
  • Immunization history
  • Toxic exposure
  • Diet (mother’s if breast feeding)
  • History of any trauma
  • School history
  • Physical and osteopathic structural exam
  • Evaluation of walking, hands and knees crawling, belly crawling, heel-to-toe walking, drawing ability and visual tracking

Osteopathic medicine is about the body’s relationship between structure and function. How our body functions has a direct relationship to our structure.
