Your First Visit

 
You will receive treatment at your first consultation

On arrival at the clinic our Practice Manager will take some personal details from you such as your name, address, date of birth etc, in order to complete your patient record card. 

This card will be completed at each and every visit and allows the osteopath to maintain a record of your symptoms and progress.

Your first consultation with an Osteopath will last approximately 30-45 minutes. You will be asked a series of questions about your health, past and present, as well as about your work and interests to build up an accurate picture of your complaint.

The osteopath will need to carry out a physical examination and assessment, which may require the removal of some outer clothing. This will enable the osteopath to accurately determine your condition and its cause.

Once your condition has been properly assessed, the osteopath will perform a hands-on treatment to enable your condition to resolve.

You will be given an estimate of how many treatments you require at this visit and, if necessary, a follow-up appointment will be arranged.

Your osteopath will talk to you throughout your treatment and you should be made to feel at ease. Do feel free to ask questions during your consultation if you are unsure.

Some patients experience soreness after treatment, similar to that felt after unaccustomed exercise. This usually lasts no more than 24 - 48 hours.

Most patients come to an osteopath without having first consulted their doctor. Osteopaths are trained to ensure that no serious problems are overlooked.
