Pediatric Osteopathy appointments in Sintra, Cascais & Lisbon

Do you want to understand why your baby cries and help him to be calm and happy?

Does your baby have an asymmetry or do you want to make sure your child develops harmoniously?

Is your baby often irritable and having trouble calming down?

Does crying escalate quickly, even when it is attended to immediately?

Does the baby often wake up crying during the night and does not calm down even after eating?

Have you tried a lot of things that don’t work, and everyone tells you they’re colic and it’s normal?

I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU, IT IS NOT NORMAL FOR A BABY TO CRY INCONSOLOLATELY

For many years, “colics” were to blame for all the ills of babies. However, colic are not that frequent, and your baby may actually be crying in pain, but for several other structural reasons that can be easily resolved with Osteopathy.

One of the consequences of the baby crying so much and for several days is, the high level of cortisol in the body (which is the hormone released when there is stress, where basically the baby constantly feels that he is in danger), cortisol causes pain and tension in the nerves which will cause even more discomfort and crying, and a problem that would be simple to treat is often camouflaged as colic, called “normal”, and beyond crying the structural problem remains.

And the moment that should be the most wonderful moment of your lives becomes exhaustion and constant anguish.

BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY, AND THE POSTPARTUM CAN BE MUCH SOFTER

The causes of these structural misalignments and pain are:

  • Position that the baby had inside the uterus, especially in the last trimester, which is already very tight and without much space to change the position;
  • Babies who are born by C-section and who have not made the movements they should have done. (Which happen naturally in a normal birth);
  • Suction cup births or forceps often create tension in the baby’s head;
  • Complicated and Overly manipulative childbirth, cord around the neck, fetal distress, induced birth (where contractions are stronger than in an uninduced birth);
  • Traumas (pulls, falls, etc.)

THE BABY MUST BE ASSESSED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IN ORDER TO MAKE THE TREATMENT EASIER AND CAUSING LESS STRESS IN THE BABY AND FAMILY

I am fascinated by osteopathic treatment in babies and children because the results are incredibly fast compared to adults.

During the sessions I make recommendations for each case so that you can complement the treatment at home, and with this teamwork the treatment is even more complete.

The treatment of pediatric/infant osteopathy is completely painless and often pleasant for the baby.

My name is Cláudio Miguel Pestana. I am Certified Osteopath (C-0031181).

Osteopathy is for me much more than a profession, it is really what makes me happy and completed my life. Having the honor of being able to treat people, promoting a healthier and pain-free life, is an incredibly gratifying feeling. I can not imagine doing anything else, and I’m grateful every day for being able to practice Osteopathy.

My goal as an Osteopath is to be in constant adaptation, updating and evolution. Improving my knowledge to provide the best and most complete treatment to each client. Thus, I have taken several complementary courses, to specialize myself more and more in areas such as Sports Osteopathy, Pediatric Osteopathy and Obstetric Osteopathy.
