The process of children growing up and becoming increasingly mobile is defined by a number of important milestones which are essential to their development. Dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system and related problems can impair the central nervous system and compromise their healthy development and wellbeing. Babies experience these issues more seriously than older children and adults. Learning to detect dysfunctions early by identifying pathological motoric and behavioural patterns can help determine effective treatment approaches in a timely manner. Manual medicine offers diagnostic techniques and therapeutic approaches which can make an important difference in development and can help to treat orthopaedic disorders more effectively.
