What should I expect from my visit to an osteopath?
Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. On your first visit, the osteopath will spend time taking a detailed medical history including important information about your lifestyle and diet. You will normally be asked to undress to your underwear and perform a series of simple movements. This will allow a full diagnosis and treatment plan tailored to your needs.
With their hands osteopaths identify abnormalities within the human structure and function. They then facilitate the body's ability to heal itself through a variety of stretching, mobilizing and manipulative techniques. With added exercises and health advice, osteopaths help to reduce the symptoms and improve your health and quality of life.
Your osteopath should make you feel at ease and communicate what s/he is doing. Do ask questions at anytime during your consultation if you are unsure.
