I will first take a case history, asking you questions about the reason for you consulting, your past medical history, and general health to get a global picture of your health. I will then ask you to partially undress and it is advised to wear loose fitting clothing so you are comfortable (tracksuit bottoms or shorts for example) The Osteopath will then perform tests, using neurological, orthopaedic, medical and osteopathic tests depending on what the problem is / what is required. The treatment consists of the use of a wide range of techniques : soft/deep tissue, cranial, visceral, fascial and structural that will be used appropriately at the time of the treatment. If you don’t feel comfortable with a specific technique (i.e. ‘clicking the spine’) I can use another one the patient you are comfortable with.
