What is Pediatric Care

The word “paediatrics” means “healer of children” and at Bosnar Health, we understand the importance of supporting a child’s healthy development.

Our passion for treating newborns and children is based on providing the support that families need to manage challenges with the right information and the right treatments. There is exponential growth of the nervous system during the first decade of a child’s life. Any affront to that development, even a traumatic birth, can shape the course of a child’s neurological development. We take a holistic approach to any concern that has presented itself and are happy to apply any preventive support you may need.

Concerns most commonly treated include:

  • Torticollis
  • Latching Issues/TMJ dysfunction
  • Colic/Fussy Baby
  • Plagiocephaly
  • Pediatric Sports Injuries
  • Improved Immune system function
  • Sleeping problems
  • Neurosensory and Neurobehavioral Issues
  • Headache/Migraine
  • Growing Pains
  • Concussion therapy

Infant Massage Therapy

Often cited as the “language of touch”, this treatment is an instructional visit for families and babies with our Massage Therapist. Instruction involves stroking the muscles of an infant using a variety of specialized massage techniques. Treatments can soothe your baby and support better sleep. It may also support with improving weight gain, aiding digestion, improving circulation and easing teething pain.

Offered by: Ann Tustin + Carolyn Tsang
Children (2-10 years)
Chiropractic Care

Alignment issues for children differ from adults due to the immaturity of their musculoskeletal and ligamentous structures. Using specialized techniques specific to children, a chiropractic treatment may improve sleep, behaviour and attitude as well as immune system function. Symptoms such as ear infections, difficulty breathing, colic and attention deficit may also be an indication of an impediment of the nervous system. Conditions treated include but are not limited to pediatric sports injuries, neurosensory and neurobehavioural issues, headache/migraine, growing pains and concussion therapy.

Pediatric Massage Therapy

Bosnar Health recommends a maximum 45 minute treatment for ages 2-10 years old. Massage Therapy can be supportive for children of all ages. We often think of stress as an adult condition, but many children experience situations that are stressful (starting at a new school etc.). The benefits of massage treatment include a reduction of stress and stress hormone levels, which also impacts the immune system. The experience of a safe, unconditional touch can also increase feelings of self-acceptance and self-confidence.
