You’ll be asked about your symptoms, medical history as well as your day-to-day routine, diet and exercise. Our osteopaths will also look at your posture and flexibility, gently moving your body to assess more accurately where the pain or sensitivity is. If necessary, your blood pressure might be taken or you could be referred for an x-ray to confirm any findings.
Maintaining high standards of ethics and professionalism we will always tell you if your condition is not suitable for osteopathy in which case we can refer you to your GP or an orthopaedic surgeon.
Before any treatment your osteopath will explain what improvements you’re likely to see and the length of time it could take.
