What to expect
Initially the osteopath will take a full presenting history, discussing your presenting problem. This also includes a full medical history as well as any other previous problems that may be relevant.
Following this, a full assessment is carried out looking at the mechanics of the body, involving your posture, the health of the muscles and joints as well as any other elements that may be contributing to your presentation. This should allow a clear diagnosis and prognosis to be given before treatment and allow the patient to ask any questions or concerns they may have.
