If it is necessary to ask you to undress to your underwear, you will be offered a gown and to change in private. It helps if you can come to a consultation wearing loose clothing.
This depends on the nature of the treatment required. At the initial consultation your osteopath will formulate a treatment plan and discuss it with you. You will not be asked to commit yourself to a lengthy course of treatment.
This may sometimes occuer as the tissues resolve strain patterns. Your individual case will be discussed with you about any any possible reactions following treatment, and the steps to take. You will be able to be in contact with us between any appointment.
You do not need to consult your GP before you visit an osteopath although you may wish to do so and the osteopath will work with you and your GP if you wish that contact to be made.
