Visiting The Osteopath

Your first consultation with an Osteopath will involve taking a thorough case and medical history after which the Osteopath will examine you.

Usually you will be asked to undress down to your underwear for the examination. Please feel free to bring a pair of shorts/leggings and/or a T-shirt to wear for the consultation if this would make you feel more comfortable.
Similarly, you are welcome to bring a friend or family member to sit in on the consultation with you.

After taking you through active movements and performing the relevant orthopaedic and neurological tests the Osteopath will inform you of their diagnosis and where appropriate will proceed with treatment.

Your Osteopath will inform you of their proposed treatment plan and give you an idea of how many treatments it is likely to take to resolve your problem. They may also provide you with advice on hot or cold therapy, exercise and posture.

Please feel free to ask questions at any part of the consultation. Make sure you are provided with a clear explanation of your treatment plan, including any risks involved.
