Treatment

Appointments last about forty minutes and in the case of babies and children you will be asked to complete a questionnaire beforehand and to tell me anything else you would like to mention.

The initial consultation involves finding out not only the reason for your visit as well as your general health and accidents and illnesses you may have experienced in the past, Emotional upsets are also relevant.

Osteopaths treat the person, not the condition, as everyone is an individual and their experience is unique. All symptoms are considered relevant and are taken into account when evaluating the problem. Osteopaths are trained to look for the cause a patient’s problem, not just address the symptom, in order to restore optimal health.

On the first visit you will be asked to undress to your underwear, after that it is not usually necessary. Treatment will involve gentle touch to some parts of your body, and as it is holistic, it is not unusual for other areas to be treated than where symptoms are experienced. Patients often feel relaxed after a treatment. It is not unusual to experience relief after the first treatment, however usually 2 or 3 treatments are advised and further treatment may be beneficial for longer term improvement, depending on the nature of the problem.

Osteopathy is very effective in treating some sporting injuries and internal organs as well as the musculoskeletal system. There are many conditions that can be helped by osteopathy not only back pain, however, if you are unsure whether it is right for you please call and speak to me personally.
