GOING TO SEE YOUR OSTEOPATH SHOULD BECOME PART OF A REGULAR ROUTINE, JUST LIKE SEEING YOUR DENTIST OR OPTICIAN. BUT GOING TO SEE ANY HEALTH PROFESSIONAL BRINGS UP EVEN A LITTLE ANXIETY IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WHAT TO EXPECT THROUGH THOSE DOORS... SO WE'LL CLEAR ALL THAT UP FOR YOU NOW.
We will take a thorough case history from you regarding your current symptoms and past medical history.
If you are currently on medications or have had prior investigations such as X-rays or MRI please bring these details with you as they could be helpful in diagnosis your current problem.
You will be asked if you are comfortable dressing down to your underwear for the first session. Please feel free to bring shorts and a loose top if you feel more comfortable in these. (The reason behind this is on the first examination the osteopath will want to examine you posture and spinal curves to ascertain if these areas are contributing to your current problem).
On future appointments the osteopath will only ask you to dress down to the area in which they are treating.
The physical examination will also include examining and assessing the relevant joints and muscles of your body, special orthopedic tests and medical tests, if necessary, may also be carried out to determine your diagnosis and if osteopathic treatment is suitable for you.
A diagnosis will be formed, and explained to you.
A treatment plan will then be formulated; completely customized to your individual needs and explained to you. This may involve discussing how we will address your current problem in our sessions. It will also include informing you of what contributing factors are affecting your body and how we can combat these at home with exercises.
If you are happy to, then we will start treatment. This could involve soft tissue release (massage), joint articulation, joint manipulation, stretching, cranial and many more osteopathic techniques all tailored to your specific treatment plan.
It is common for people to respond differently after osteopathic treatments. Many people will feel instant relief while others may feel slightly sore
(this is normal) for 48 hours before your body adapts and relief is felt.
If we feel you will benefit from ice or heat therapy, we will inform you of the best product to use. Similarly if we feel certain exercises or stretches will benefit in your recovery we will prescribe these to you at this point.
