At your first consultation and treatment, you can expect:
To give a detailed history of your problem and other medical conditions:
- Your Osteopath may ask questions of a personal nature such as bowel habit or urinary function. They may ask women about any difficulty with menstruation, pregnancy or labour if this could be relevant to a low back or pelvic condition.
- Some of these questions are needed to eliminate possible medical conditions that can mimic musculoskeletal pain, but which need medical, rather than osteopathic treatment.
