What to expect

A first appointment is longer than subsequent appointments to allow adequate time to listen and ask questions about your problem and other health related questions. The information you provide will be confidential.

With your consent the Osteopath will perform a physical examination. This is likely to involve the Osteopath touching the areas of your body that are experiencing pain and asking you to move around. They may also look at scans and reports if these are available.

It is likely that the Osteopath will ask you to dress down to your underwear in order to see and touch the areas of the body causing concern. Tell your osteopath if you are uncomfortable about this as the Osteopath may be able to suggest clothing such as close fitting garments that will enable them to work effectively without making you feel uncomfortable. You should expect privacy to undress and a towel will be provided, so please do discuss this.

You are welcome to bring someone with you into the examination room if this puts you at ease.
