This year!: As an osteopathic physician specializing in promoting health in the structure and functioning of the body, i recommend that if your child be evaluated at this time, when growth spurt is imminent to assess for scoliosis, leg length symmetry, and evidence of residual strain patterns accumulated through childhood. Promotion of health and clearing of unnecessary strain patterns. Good day!

Oh yes. Osteopathic care can really help maintain proper structure and function. I have had amazing results with so many issues with osteopathic care.

This year: She should be seen for immunizations that are due at this age. To discuss pubertal development, and to track her growth.

besides immunizations, kids this age may have puberty related issues, concerns about height and acne and sexual questions. Sports and diet advice are also useful in this age group.
