When receiving treatment from an Osteopath you benefit from seeing a musculoskeletal specialist and the consultation will be similar to that of any registered medical practitioner. You receive a more personal and thorough treatment in a more relaxing and less stressful environment.
A detailed case history will be taken, how your symptoms began, what affects them, health problems, accidents or injuries, medications, surgeries and lifestyle habits. Your initial consultation and treatment may last up to one hour - longer than in most other clinics,
Neurological, orthopaedic, cardiovascular etc examinations may also be performed, where relevant. Osteopathic evaluation of your body's biomechanics (structure, posture and physical movements) would then conclude the examination, leading to a diagnosis.
Diagnosis, clinical findings and an appropriate treatment plan with projected recovery would be explained and discussed.
For your first consultation it is helpful if you bring with you any medical reports, X-rays or current medication.
Classical Osteopathic treatment involves assessment and often treatment of the whole body, not only the site of pain. Altered global biomechanics (posture, alignment and muscle balance) may also be involved, and pain can also refer from other areas: e.g. shoulder pain can associate with neck and upper back pain, or leg and hip pain with the pelvis and lower back.
Accordingly, please wear loose and comfortable clothing for your treatment.
Cranial Osteopathy is a very gentle form of treatment. Lightly holding the head and allowing very slight changes to occur in the pulsation movement of the cerebro-spinal fluid that bathes and nourishes the brain and spinal cord, profound and far reaching changes can occur in the body's function and homeostasis.
Acupuncture can be used to treat areas of pain, and also underlying conditions and general health: e.g. headaches, energy levels, mood, sleep, stress, etc.
Points may be used away from the site of pain (e.g. points in the feet for headaches) and the selection of points can vary according to the constitution of the individual.
