We will listen to you about your symptoms as we aim to find out exactly what structure is causing the problem. Therefore we will be able to discover what we need to examine further to give you an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
This simple process looks at your posture, how you stand and how you move. Importantly, we look at the whole body as we tend to find that the problem is often caused by other areas. Further more, to provide you with a safe experience, we may take your blood pressure, reflexes and test your muscle strength.
Most importantly, we tailor every treatment to each individual as its based on age, fitness levels and diagnosis. Gentle hands-on techniques focus on relieving tension, tightness and pain by stretching, moving and manipulating muscles, nerves, joints and other soft tissue.
We’ve found that hands-on treatment paired with exercises and lifestyle advice works best. Don’t worry about remembering what we suggest as we write everything down for you or provide video resources for your convenience.
Initial Assessment – £50.
Follow-up Sessions – £45
You don’t need to bring anything special along to your treatment with us.
It may be necessary to ask you to lift up or remove some items of clothing. Therefore, we encourage bringing loose items of clothing such as baggy shorts and loose-fitting garments to ensure you don’t feel uncomfortable as we assess the area of concern.
Firstly we will take a case history to ask you about your problem. Secondly, we will then examine the area and perform some simple tests.
After this we will give you a diagnosis, a treatment plan and then finally provide you with a tailored treatment. This might include massage, manipulation and exercise adivce.
Osteopathy is usually a very gentle process and we work very hard to make the treatment as painless as possible but you may experience some slight discomfort during the session. Importantly, please don’t worry though, we will be in constant dialogue with you and if anything is sore then just let us know and we can stop.
