Your first treatment: Upon arrival, you will be asked to fill in some paperwork with your details, and a brief medical history. During your consultation, your Osteopath will go through this in detail with you, as well as discussing your presenting complaint. Following this, your Osteopath will leave the room to allow you to prepare for your treatment. Depending on the body part being treated, you may need to remove some layers of clothing, however, a gown will always be available for your comfort.
Your Osteopath will then take you through an examination process, as they try to determine the cause of your problem. Once they have reached a conclusion, they will discuss their findings with you, as well as their recommendations for treatment and management. Your Osteopath will indicate how many treatments will be necessary, and you will have the opportunity to discuss any questions or areas of concern.
Please allow up to one hour for your Initial Consultation, and 30 minutes for any Subsequent Consultations.
