What to expect when you have osteopathy

Medical history – At the first consultation, a full medical case history will be taken. This enables us to build up a fuller picture of your overall health.

Body and posture assessment – We usually do a full body assessment to see how your body moves, assess what pain you are in and see if we can recreate that pain. You will be asked to undress down to your undergarments, but please feel free to wear shorts and a vest top.

Your treatment – Our findings will be discussed with you and we will agree a treatment plan. We use a wide range of gentle manipulations, depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis. Treatment will be different for every patient buy may include different techniques, such as: soft tissue massage and joint articulation.
