Description of treatment

Osteopathy is a drugless system of healing or medicine devised by an American medical doctor, A.T. Still, in 1874 after becoming disillusioned by the remedies of the medical system of the times.Osteopaths believe that the body has the ability to heal itself and thrive for health. They use manual therapy to remove any obstruction to the whole body’s ability to heal.

During the initial consultation, you will be asked about your current issue, general health, medications and any previous medical history. This is to ensure a safe examination and treatment.
After the history, you will be asked to undress to your underwear or shorts in order to assess your posture and movements. Some orthopaedics or other medical tests may also be performed if appropriate to determine what may be going on and to decide on an appropriate treatment plan.

Helpful tips:
– Avoid alcohol and having a large meal before the consultation.
– Please remove any jewellery
– Arrive in plenty of time as late arrival may result in reduced treatment time
– Please switch off your mobile phone to avoid disruption
– After the treatment, drink plenty of water and avoid strenuous activity
