The Osteopathic Practice

Jane O'Connor & Associates

Your First Consultation

Medical History

Prior to your first consultation you will need to fill in our medical questionnaire, which you can either download as a PDF document from this website, or we can post it to you if you contact us by email or telephone.

It is important that you provide your Osteopath with as many details about your medical history as you can; there are various medical conditions that can produce musculo-skeletal symptoms similar to those which would normally respond well to manipulation, but which would be unsuitable for Osteopathic treatment.

Your medical history will enable your Osteopath to differentiate these problems and, if necessary, refer you back to your own Doctor for more appropriate treatment.

Re-Examination Questionnaire: If you are already a patient at this practice but have not attended for over 2 years, please fill in this shorter questionnaire, so that we can keep your notes up to date.

Physical Examination

The Osteopath will examine your spine, together with any relevant joints or limbs. It may be necessary to test your blood pressure, reflexes or your urine, depending on your problem.

Osteopathy is a very hands on therapy. Please read: Our Patient Charter


The subsequent treatment may vary greatly, depending upon such factors as your physical condition, the severity of the pain, your age and so forth. The treatment will usually consist of massage or ultrasound, together with some manipulation. Treatment may also include manual traction, electrical therapy, ice packs or a program of basic exercises.

What can I do after treatment?:

Following a treatment, it is not advisable to do any heavy lifting, or carrying (for example, bags of shopping), or any household tasks such as vacuuming, ironing or cleaning cupboards.

Do not attempt any strong exercise.

After treatment, the muscles will be softened, and the joints released, so please take extra care for the rest of the day.
