HOW OSTEOPATHY CAN HELP YOU
A visit to an osteopath will start with a full case history being taken with special emphasis on any mechanical or joint problems experienced. An examination will follow where you may be asked to remove some clothing and perform movements so that the osteopath can assess how your mobility is affected and which muscles and ligaments are involved in causing the problem. If necessary the osteopath will liaise with your doctor or consultant and further tests or investigations may be required to assist the practitioner in the treatment plan. The osteopath will be able to explain the nature of your problem and the necessary action needed to help.
You should expect to feel the benefits of the treatment within 3 visits, but to get the full benefit it may take a longer course of treatment, depending on the nature of the problem. A full indication of how many treatments are likely will also be given.
