what to expect at your first consultation


A full case history is conducted at your first appointment lasting up to one hour, detailing when and how symptoms began, your medical history including existing health conditions, any prior injuries and a physical examination. From this information, I aim to diagnose your symptoms and together create a treatment plan and where appropriate suggest lifestyle changes. Depending on the complexity of your presentation and history, there may not sufficient time for a full treatment, but the aim is to do so.

Please note that it may be necessary for you to undress to your underwear, a gown is available should you prefer.

For follow up appointments lasting up to half an hour, a review of your symptoms will be discussed to inform your treatment plan. All treatment will be explained and your full consent is required. Osteopathy can be tailored to suit your preferences and there are a variety of treatment methods available.
