A Healthy Childhood Starts Here...

Founded in 1982 by Dr. Viola Frymann, the Osteopathic Center for Children  is a world renowned leader in treating children  and educating physicians from all over the world. Don't just take it from us. Read what our patients have to say about us.

 

 

HELPING CHILDREN
 

The Osteopathic Center Children helps children from all over the world.  Many of the children treated at the Center are facing severe health challenges, such as seizures, autism, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy and other complex conditions. They come specifically to receive the specialized and unique aspect of Osteopathic care developed at the Osteopathic Center for Children.

 100 YEAR OLD BRANCH OF MAINSTREAM MEDICINE

 Osteopathic Medicine is a 100 year old branch of mainstream medicine that originated the concept of “whole-person” medicine and “integrative care.” Physicians at the Center are trained to view the patient  in the context of the whole person or whole child, rather than see the child as a collection of unrelated complaints.  Because of the holistic philosophy advocated by Osteopathic Medicine, physicians at the Osteopathic Center for Children are experts in diet, nutrition, natural medicines, and a very special technique called Osteopathic Manipulation.

 OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATION

 Osteopathic Manipulation is a series of gentle techniques in which the physicians uses their hands to restore proper functioning to the body. The methods developed at the Osteopathic Center for Children and taught by its world famous founder, Dr. Viola Frymann, are gentle, but at the same time very powerful and extremely potent in causing deep changes within the body (especially the fluids around the brain and spinal cord).  These changes point the body in the direction of health allowing the body to heal itself.

 FINDING HEALTH

 Although renown for its work with children who have complex medical conditions, Osteopathic Medicine as practiced at the Osteopathic Center for Children is beneficial to all children. In fact, the cornerstone of Osteopathic Medicine is prevention. Many children (some studies suggest up to 80% of all live births) sustain injury from the birth process. This could range from the imperceptible subtle injury, which can only be detected by trained skillful hands, to the more severe, which are immediately obvious to the naked eye. Injury or trauma at birth may provide the first cause of dysfunction, which can result in colic, excessive spiting-up, ear infections, and many other problems.

Numerous less well-defined complaints such as nervousness, fatigue, insomnia, indigestion, pain, headache, etc. may have persisted so long that they have been taken for granted. But when the structural disturbances produced by that original injury are corrected, the patient or parent is surprised to find that those persistent, habitual complaints have gone. By using Osteopathic techniques many common illnesses such as ear infections, colic, poor growth and many other conditions can be prevented before they start.

FOSTERING INNOVATION & CONTINUING EXCELLENCE

Although all osteopathic physicians attend medical school, learn surgery, and can prescribe medicines, the work of the Osteopathic Center for Children focuses on the unique aspects of  Osteopathic care as they apply to children. Each of us wants to make sure families have options for their child's healthcare. The Osteopathic Center for Children conducts on-going research to further refine and develop the unique approach of Osteopathic Medicine developed at the Center in treating children. The Center’s mission is to  elucidate and develop those techniques that will most effectively help all children to reach the maximum of his or her potential.
