Osteopathy Treatments – The Process

Your first Osteopathy appointment will start with a long conversation exploring the reason why you have chosen to come and see us, as well as other details your medical history and lifestyle – enabling us to get a full understanding of you and your complaint.

Examination will involve a mixture of clinical tests, movement tests, and touch to locate the source and cause of your symptoms. Usually people will be asked to remove some clothing to enable this process – however if you would prefer for any reason not to, we can find a way around this. However, because of this we ask that people wear suitable supportive underwear, or bring with them comfortable clothes that they can move freely in.

After the consultation and examination your Osteopath has a diagnosis they will discuss this with you and formulate a plan. Usually this involves a mixture of hands-on treatment, exercise prescription, and dietary/lifestyle changes. In the rare case that your Osteopath thinks that you may need attention from another medical professional they can advise you on this too. Everybody, and every complaint is different, and therefore requires different levels of attention and time – and a different number of appointment. Most commonly people will see their Osteopath approximately 2-4 times over 1-4  weeks for a simple or acute complaint; and maybe 6-10 for a more complex or chronic condition.
