Our receptionists will request that you arrive 5 minutes earlier for your initial appointment, as we will ask you to fill out a registration form with details such as name, address, and your GP details.
During the initial consultation we will ask you a lot of questions, not only about the current problem, but also about your general health, as it is vital that we build up a full picture in order to reach the correct diagnosis.
The osteopath will then carry out a full examination (Patients are usually asked to remove their outer clothing, usually shirt or trousers depending on the problem.)
Once we have reached a diagnosis and ascertained that it is something we can help with, we will work out a treatment plan and give advice on pain relief, exercise, and posture, as appropriate.
At the end of the consultation your osteopath will discuss how you may feel after treatment, what activities to avoid, and any further treatment that may be necessary.
Monday to Friday
8:45am to 5.45pm
