  • Limb pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Postural discomfort

A first time visit to the osteopath will include:
An in depth consultation, covering all the systems and lifestyle aspects of the patient.
A physical examination, including: neurological screening, musculoskeletal screening, respiratory and cardiovascular screening, urine analysis, visceral fat measurement, lasting around 15 minutes. (Additional investigations may be required through your GP such as X-rays or blood tests). Takes around 15 minutes.

How many treatments?

The average course of treatments for an acute condition is between four and eight sessions. However, some chronic conditions may require a longer maintenance period.
If it is felt that a patient is not responding to treatment then every effort will be made to find a suitable alternative approach. The Practice has an excellent network of high quality therapists.

Are there any side effects?

Please note that occasionally patients suffer some mild discomfort in the form of soreness for a day or so after a strong treatment.
