You will be seen by a fully qualified and registered osteopath who will ask you detailed questions about your current complaint, medical history and general health including medication.

A standing examination may be necessary to assess the area of injury. You may be asked to remove items of clothing to enable the osteopath to undertake the treatment. The practitioner will at all times respect your need for privacy and dignity.

Simple tests may be carried out to focus on the correct diagnosis. These will include simple movements and reflex tests.

A provisional diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed and agreed before any treatment takes place.

Should more detailed examinations such as X-rays be necessary your practitioner will explain why and then refer you to the appropriate professional.

Your practitioner will be happy to discuss any risks associated with physical therapy and advise you as to the best and safest approach for your condition.

You may experience some discomfort for up to 48 hours after treatment which can be alleviated by simple aftercare. These include hot and cold therapy and exercise regimes. Exercise, postural and lifestyle advice will be given at the end of the treatment.
