At your first consultation and treatment, you can expect:
To give a detailed history of your problem and other medical conditions:
Examination of the area(s) of your pain and any associated regions of the body:
An initial diagnosis and an explanation of your proposed treatment plan, including any advice or exercises:
This means that your Osteopath will have to feel and examine the area of your pain and other significant areas, depending on the area involved.
Some of the treatment techniques will require that your Osteopath will need to lean on you or get very close, in order to control the mobility or to focus a manipulation.
You can remove your consent to treatment, or any part of the treatment at any time.
If you decide that you are not comfortable with any technique, please tell your Osteopath and they can discuss alternative techniques or treatments to achieve the same or a similar improvement.
We understand that, what to us is a normal everyday occurrence, is something completely new and unknown to you.
Please ask if you wish to have any part of your treatment explained or if there are alternative techniques available, if you are uncomfortable with what is being done.
