Your osteopath will assess you by asking about your medical history, look at how your body moves naturally and also feel how your muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons move. The osteopath may perform specific medical tests such as taking your blood pressure, testing reflexes and measuring joint range of movement.

Your condition will be explained to you including the benefits, risks and alternatives to treatment. If we consider that your treatment would be better undertaken by or in partnership with another practitioner we will ensure that you are referred to the appropriate health professional.

Treatment will be gentle and non-invasive and will generally involve some combination of soft tissue massage, joint articulation, gentle manipulation, cranio-sacral treatment and advice on posture, exercise and diet.

A treatment plan will be created and you will be given an idea of the achievable outcomes within an agreed timeframe.

Your osteopath may refer you to your GP for blood tests, X-Rays or MRI scans if it is necessary.

It is helpful to wear loose fitting comfortable clothing (i.e. no jeans).

Expect to be treated with dignity and respect.
