The enormous twisting and compression forces which the baby is exposed to during the birth process can put a great deal of strain on its tissues. If the birth is particularly fast or prolonged the forces may be too much for the tissues to accommodate and a ?strain pattern’ or moulding may develop in the tissues.

Probably the most frequent condition we encounter in babies is ?colic’ This is a broad term for babies that are irritable ?windy’ babies and may cry persistently. Other problems that may occur in babies with retained moulding are poor feeding and disturbed sleep and in addition babies who are frequently sick after feeding and constipated babies.

As children grow, any untreated strain patterns may express themseleves in a varuety of musculo-skeletal problems including headaches, persistent colds and ear infections amongst others.
