Cranial Osteopathy Treatment on Infant | Dr. Dan Williams, DO | Carmel & Indianapolis, IN


As I get right on that, he starts to notice
that and he squirms a little bit. That’s pretty common, he knows something’s
up. And as it lets go, he lets go. And everything is nice and peaceful. So Stefan here is about 7 weeks old. And he did have a little bit of a tongue tie
when he was born, was causing his mom quite a bit of pain while breast feeding. After his first treatment early on when he
was born, and after the tongue tie was corrected, that got a lot better. And so today, we’re just doing some very
traditional cranial osteopathy or what some people call CranioSacral treatment, CranioSacral
therapy for him. And so really what I’m doing now is working
on his hips, both his leg and his pelvis, and his sacrum and his tailbone area, and
I’m using my fingers and using his body weight as they rest on my fingers, very precisely
placed fingers, and allowing his body and gravity to actually bring about the correction. And so what you can see here is this little
guy is just splayed out and relaxed. He’s asleep laying on the cold treatment
table, but tolerating the treatment quite well. So now we’ll spin this guy around and work
on his head. And this is exactly the same treatment like
we have been doing. And so in his case, we have just a little
bit of treatment on the right side that we’re working on. And as we get close, as I get right on that,
he starts to notice that and he squirms a little bit. That’s pretty common, he knows something’s
up. And as it lets go, he lets go. And so now I’m just going to change my hands
slightly, we’re almost done. You saw his breathing pick up there. As you can see, very gentle technique. Very well tolerated. He’s got a little smile there. Even on a sleeping baby on a cold table, they tolerate
it quite well. So again, osteopathic treatment really all
kids can benefit from, particularly for those that had some sort of difficult birth process,
colic, crying all the time, difficulty sleeping, reflux, recurrent ear infections.
