Relax!! You’ll Wonder Why You Left It So Long!

Your First Osteopathy Appointment:  All new patients are asked to complete a simple personal history form. Your osteopath needs to know about any previous medical problems, current medication and of course, most importantly, details of the condition that you need help with now.

During the initial consultation your osteopath will spend time getting to know you and will perform a comprehensive examination, using various orthopaedic, neurological and medical techniques to help determine the origin of pain. Your osteopath will then decide upon the most effective treatment, if necessary, for your condition.

Osteopathic treatment involves manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, soft tissue stretching, mobilisation, and manipulation and sometimes ultra sound. This helps reduce excessive scar formation, reduce pain, improve elasticity and mobility of muscles, joints, and spine. Depending on your condition you may be given home exercises to do to increase your strength and flexibility. If necessary and only with your permission your osteopath will refer you to your GP or an Orthopaedic Consultant.

Our osteopaths appreciate that a first time visit for treatment may be daunting but please be reassured – there may be some soreness after but usually no more than after physical exercise. If you would prefer please feel free to bring a friend or family member for moral support. However many, now pain-free patients, often wonder why they left it so long to get treatment! 

It is difficult to predict how many appointments you may need but as a general rule, acute conditions may need only 2-3 treatments, whilst long standing, chronic conditions may need longer. Some patients find it beneficial to pop in for an MOT once in a while to help maintain optimum fitness.
