What to expect during your first session?
The first consultation lasts between 40 minutes to an hour. The osteopath will start with taking a case history which includes general questions about your presenting complaint(s) and about your past medical history. If you have any relevant X-rays, MRIs, scans, medical documentation or list of medications you have been/are taking please bring them with you. In order to examine you, it might be necessary for you to get undressed down to your underwear. If you feel uncomfortable doing so it’s not a problem, just let the osteopath know and bring loose clothing with you (ideally a pair of shorts or leggings). We also supply towels for your comfort. Once we get your consent, the osteopath will ask you to perform a few movements in order to have a diagnosis. After examination, the diagnosis, treatment and management plans will be fully discussed with you. Please feel free to discuss any issues that may arise. After treatment, the Osteopath will give you some advice and if necessary some exercises/stretches to do at home.
Patients under 16 must have an adult chaperonne (over 18) at all time during the entire session.
