Dr Roger Kingston is an Osteopath and Paediatric Osteopath, in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, in osteopathic family practice, with a special interest in treating babies. Dr Kingston treats all members of the family, from babies, children, adults, pregnant women right through to senior citizens.
For his Family Osteopathy site please visit the Buderim Osteopath or the Nambour Osteopath. Roger has been safely and successfully treating babies for nearly 20 years using an exceptionally gentle osteopathic approach which encompasses paediatric cranial osteopathy and this site is especially dedicated to this specialisation.
Paediatric Osteopathy is a gentle but effective way to help babies suffering from an irritated nervous system or mechanical stresses within their bodies often with amazing results. Roger NEVER uses "crack / crunch" manipulation or a mechanical "clicker" activator on a baby or child.
Based on many years of experience, Roger recommends that any baby should be routinely assessed by an osteopath to prevent unnecessary suffering. Many of the babies we see "may have" had a premature or traumatic birth, be it a caesarean section, a ventouse or forceps extraction, or an abnormally rapid or long dry labour. Even when a baby has had an ideal birth we still recommend that they be checked over. Whilst we do not claim to treat "named conditions", the reasons Mums bring their babies to us are usually because of:
- Excessive crying or screaming
- Inconsolable or will not be put down
- Disturbed sleep patterns
- Breast feeding problems like latching on or suckling
- Digestive issues i.e., colic, wind, reflux, excessive possiting
- Flat or misshapen head shape or limb i.e, plagiocephaly and talipes
- Recurrent infections i.e., sticky eye, blocked nose, coughing, sneezing, recurrent ear & chest infections
- Restricted movement of the neck, the limbs, or a generalised stiffness in their spine
- Intervention in delivery
Please spend some time looking at our website before booking an appointment, and if you have any concerns or questions about your baby then please do get in touch as they can usually be helped. Roger is a caring, family orientated osteopath with 4 children of his own. He is also equally skilled in treating children and adults too.
We are based at two locations, Buderim and Nambour. The Buderim Osteopath is at 30 King Street "on" Buderim and the second at the Nambour Osteopath 71 Blackall Terrace, Nambour. Both practices cover Queensland's beautiful Sunshine Coast and Hinterl. Please give us a call on 1300 739 345.
We are here to help and you will be glad you called.
