Within our clinic we have a range of Osteopathic clinicians that are on hand to help.
Your first appointment will be an hour and a half and involves an assessment of your general health, medical history and a physical examination. The Osteopath will use their hands to find areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain within your body, particularly the spine. With your consent, you will probably need to remove some clothing from the area being examined, and you may be asked to perform simple movements. Your osteopath will also check for signs of serious conditions they cannot treat and may advise you to see your GP or go to hospital. They should provide you with a letter explaining what they believe to be the problem.
Your follow up osteopath appointments will be 1 hour.
Feel free to bring your own towels with you for use on the treatment couch during the session.
You may also wish to bring shorts or other loose-fitting clothing that you can move freely in to facilitate your assessment and treatment.
