The care of children in the best of times poses unique challenges and opportunities. During times, such as the coronavirus pandemic, pediatric practices have needed to adapt to be able to provide the best care for children, and their family unit. By maintaining different office hours, utilizing social media and implementing telemedicine, pediatricians can provide quality care during this uncertain time. Use of OMT should be considered as part of the treatment of children by osteopathic doctors and encouraged during times of illness and stress.
