Osteopathic Manual Treatment
Your first consultation
We will ask questions about your current problem, your medical history, medications and any recent X-rays, scans or test results that you may have.
Full osteopathic examination will be performed involving diagnostic, orthopaedic or neurological tests, postural assessments and activities or exercises, which will help determine how best to manage your condition.
As osteopathy takes a holistic approach to treatment, we may look at other parts of your body, as well as the area that is troubling you. For example, if you have a sore knee, your ankle, pelvis and back may be contributing to the presentation.
Also, we will provide education, advice and exercises to help you manage your condition between treatments. After examination we will explain the diagnosis and proposed plan of treatment.Treatment will be performed at initial consultation.
