KiSS syndrom affects new-born babies. KiSS is the abbreviation of Kopfgelenk Induziert Symetrie Storungen which can be translated by induced symetry troubles of cervical vertebra.
Ex-ray of cervical rachis and pelvis
The first step is to obtain x-rays of these children’s cervical rachis and pelvis.
The x-rays do not lead to diagnosis of KiSS Syndrom but aim at a diagnosis differential
First and foremost, exclusion of any form of pathology contraindicating recourse to manipulation is essential before treatment
Questionnaire to be filled in by parents
The second part consists in having parents fill in a questionnaire. This questionnaire helps us plan treatment of the child as precisely as possible and find out similarities between different cases.
Planning of three sessions close to each other (15 day)
The first session consists in getting acquainted with the child, diagnose KiSS Syndrom and start C0/C1 osteopathic treatment (with medical certificate according to decree no 2007-435,25 march 2007 on acts and exercise conditions of osteopathy) then start four-handed cranio-sacral therapy ( 2 osteopaths) and liberate diaphragm.
Then follow-up of patient (varies according to cases )
To that ends it seems to me essential to make sure that the symptoms mentioned above be better known by the medical community and osteopaths
The sensibilization of health professionals would permit early identification of these children and orientation towards adapted therapy.
Today, after encounter with about 1000 “KiSS Kinder” I am alarmed at the almost inexistant therapeutic care and the vast number of professionnals involved (doctors, physiotherapists osteopaths) with no answer to the problem.
The distress of parents is great, the loss of confidence in therapists a problem.
