When to see an Osteopath

Most people who visit an Osteopath do so for muscular aches and pains.  While Neck, Back and Joint pain make up the majority of what we see, we do see people for a range of ailments including:

  • Neck, back, and joint pain, including disc injuries
  • Postural back pain
  • Muscle strains and spasms
  • Nerve entrapments such as carpal tunnel and sciatica
  • Headaches, migraine and jaw pain, as well as
  • Sporting injuries

If you are not sure if we can help, please do give us a call, and a member of our team can have a chat with you to determine if our approach is suitable.

What to expect at your first appointment

At your first session, your Osteopath will ask you about the history of your problem to establish when and where the symptoms first started and how they may have changed over time, the treatments (if any) you have received to date, and the impact your pain may be having on your life.

After learning of the history of your pain, your Osteopath will carry out a hands-on examination, which comprises of various tests of the spine, nervous system, muscles and joints. Generally, none of these tests are painful, however if you are in acute pain, your Osteopath may ask you to demonstrate what positions and movements reproduce or exacerbate your pain.

After identifying the underlying cause/s (which usually don’t, however occasionally do require referral for an x-ray, C-T scan or MRI), your Osteopath will set some treatment goals, with the ultimate goal being to restore maximal, pain-free movement to your muscles and joints.

While you should allow up to an hour for your  first session, return visits are usually 20-30 minutes long and offer treatment & periodic comparative assessments to work towards your goals.
