What to Expect
On your first visit, a detailed case history will be taken asking about your current conidtion, questions about your general health and the history of any medical conditions.
Osteopaths are trained to treat many problems, but we are also trained to recognise when the problem may not be suitable for osteopathic treatment. On these rare occasions, we will advise you.
For the examination, we generally ask patients to remove some of their clothing to enable a thorough physical examination.
You will be asked to do some simple movements so that we can see how the different parts of your body are working together and to identify specific restrictions which may be contributing to your symptoms.
We will discuss findings with you and prospose a treatment schedule.
Treatment is gentle and safe, and uses a mixture of massage and stretching techniques, and occasional gentle manipulations.
The initial consultation will last up to one hour and follow up treatments, 45 mins.
