Your first appointment


At your first appointment, your osteopath will ask you for your full medical history. This will be followed by a thorough assessment of your spinal movements and the muscular, joint and skeletal functions of your whole body.

Once a diagnosis has been reached, a treatment plan to re-establish the normal balance and function of your body will be explained to you. Depending on the diagnosis, this will take the form of manipulative techniques, soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, exercise prescription, visceral techniques (mobilization of the gut area), or cranial techniques.


Your osteopath may also recommend more specific tests such as blood tests, X-ray or MRI. If this is the case, you will be referred to your GP or, if you so choose, you can be referred directly to a radiological centre for X-ray or MRI or to a lab for blood or urine analysis.  We will be a part of your healthcare team and work to provide you top care.
