First Appointment

What to expect

 

During your first appointment I will take a detailed case history and then examine you. The examination may involve asking you to move, along with tests of your muscles, nerves and joints to determine the exact cause of your pain. 

Your treatment plan will be fully discussed with you. If the nature of your presenting issue is not within the scope of osteopathic techniques then I can refer you back to your GP or signpost other healthcare practitioners for further investigation.

 

Treatment may involve any or all of the following once a diagnosis has been established:

  • Massage

  • Mobilisation

  • Manipulation

  • Exercise Plan


Please note you may be asked to undress to underwear during the session.  Your comfort is the most important aspect, so please bring shorts or wear leggings or loose clothing, if you prefer.

Following treatment some people do experience slight soreness.
