What is osteopathy?
On your first visit
A thorough review of your medical history will be conducted, followed by a physical examination to assess the mobility of your spine. Additional tests, including X-rays, may be recommended to provide further clarity in diagnosing your condition. This musculoskeletal assessment, in combination with other factors such as your lifestyle and accident history, will be considered to determine a diagnosis. If osteopathy falls within the appropriate scope of treatment, a discussion regarding a treatment strategy will take place, followed by the initiation of treatment. If osteopathy is not deemed suitable for your specific case, a referral to another healthcare provider will be made. The treatment itself is typically gentle and non-traumatic. You will receive guidance on preventive measures to minimize the likelihood of recurring problems, such as improving posture, adopting proper lifting techniques, and performing corrective exercises. If needed, certificates for statutory sick pay can be issued, and upon request, medical reports can be prepared.
