It is more important to know what sort of person has the disease than to know what sort of disease the person has.
Procedures will vary from therapy to therapy. However, most therapies require taking a thorough case history. By discussing your current symptoms, concerns, medical history and lifestyle your practitioner will create a treatment plan specific to your requirements.
All osteopaths at the practice are registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
During an osteopathic examination the osteopath will need to see how your joints and muscles move so it is usually necessary to remove some items of clothing. They may perform orthopaedic, neurologic or medical tests as necessary. You may be referred for further tests such as x-rays or blood tests. Osteopaths examine and treat the whole body not just the site of pain.
Following the examination we will discuss any findings and treatment options with you and together we will devise a treatment plan and proceed with your consent.
All patients are welcome to bring a chaperone/friend along with them to their appointment, however patients under 16 must be accompanied by an adult chaperone. Any information disclosed during an appointment is confidential. There may be circumstances where information is shared with other professional healthcare providers, for example, your GP, but only with your consent.
There is no charge for cancellations made 48 hours prior to the appointment. Cancellations made within 48 hours of your appointment will be charged at the full fee.
