What to Expect
Please complete our patient consent form which outlines that you understand your treatment rights and responsibilities.
You will receive a physical copy of your completed consent form. When the Practitioner is available you will be invited into the treatment room.
Your practitioner will ask detailed questions regarding your complaint, your medical history, general health and medication you may be taking. You may feel that some of this is irrelevant to your problem, however osteopathy and even massage works on treating the body as a whole and these questions may help the practitioner in your treatment. Taking the case history may take between 5-15 minutes.
Depending on the area of injury you will be asked to undress so that your practitioner can check your problem area and posture. If you are uncomfortable about this please speak to your practitioner. The examination may involve you performing some simple movements so that the Practitioner can assess your condition. Your blood pressure, reflexes, joint mobility and muscle strength may also be tested to help make an accurate diagnosis. In some cases a diagnosis may not be possible, or you may be referred to another specialist for further investigations. The practitioner will explain what type of treatment is recommended and explain why, so that treatment can begin. If at any time during treatment you find any of the techniques uncomfortable please don’t hesitate to tell your practitioner
