What to Expect

Step 1 - Case History

After booking, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to a Medical Case History Form to be completed in advance of your appointment. 

Step 4 - Working Diagnosis

Once the Osteopath has completed their Assessment and established the root cause of your pain and any contributing factors, they will clearly explain all of their findings with you and current working diagnosis. 

Step 2 - Questions

The Medical Case History Form will be reviewed in advance of your appointment. You will have time to discuss your goals from treatment and the Osteopath will talk through how the first consultation will run.

Step 5 - First Treatment

The Osteopath will discuss the treatment options based on your diagnosis.  Providing Osteopathy is suitable, the Osteopath will begin treatment and create a plan for resolving the issue and give advice on helping to prevent future flare-ups of the same issue. 

Step 3 - Assessment

The assessment will involve the Osteopath asking you to make some movements to help identify the root cause of your pain. The Osteopath may also assess reflexes, joint movement and general posture.

Step 6 - Advice

It is equally as important that you follow the Osteopath's recommendations outside of your treatments, to ensure that you achieve the full benefit from treatment.
