Parents are often surprised that older children may need to see an osteopath.

At froc we are asked frequently to assess children by their parents who are often patients themselves. This is sometimes relevant particularly when there is a family history of musculoskeletal problems.

In the modern world children are undoubtably spending a lot more time sitting than even a generation ago. This encourages poor posture which may result in the child experiencing back and neck pain as they progress through the teenage years.
