Visiting the Osteopath
Osteopathy is a practical “hands on” treatment that includes many different techniques, from very gentle soft tissue techniques, careful specific mobilisation techniques, exercises and postural advice, to specialist treatment
methods such as Cranial Osteopathy or Medical Acupuncture.
When you visit the Osteopath for the first time they will listen to you and take a full medical history, and this will then be followed by a thorough clinical examination.
Your Osteopath will diagnose the problem and will then develop a specific treatment plan for you that is designed to help relive the immediate problem in the shortest possible time.
Additionally they will look at prevention, and how best to try and avoid a recurrence of the problem and often advice is given on posture, work position, and suitable exercises.
