    • Treatment can be sought for long-term chronic conditions as well as new acute problems.
    • Preventative treatment can reduce the risk of injury and maintain the body’s ability to heal itself.

Human assessment & treatment

Your medical history, daily routine, diet, exercise and stress factors all contribute to the initial assessment. Time is taken to determine whether your presenting symptoms are suitable for osteopathic care.

What to expect:

The initial consultation will take approximately 1 hour and time will be taken to assemble a complete picture of your overall health.

A description of your existing complaint in context to your previous medical history will allow us to create a treatment plan tailor-made for you as an individual.

Our aim is to assess the physical demands on your body by observing your posture and some simple movements, which may require the removal of some clothing.

There are a number of different treatment styles, which include; soft-tissue massage, muscle-energy-techniques, myo-fascial release, cranial osteopathy, lymphatic drainage, joint articulation and manipulation.

The choice of treatment style will reflect the nature of the problem and will depend on the tissue response to palpation (light touch) and examination, so as to calm sensitized tissues and stimulate those which are underactive.

Patients do not require a referral from their GP unless costs are to be claimed from private health insurance.
