TREATMENT FOR PEOPLE

Whether you are visiting me due to an injury from an accident, lifting/carrying incorrectly, sporting activity, poor posture or occupation related strains. I can offers assessment, diagnosis and treatment for your musculoskeletal problems. Often I see people for low back ache, neck stiffness, knee pain, restricted shoulder movement, in fact any part of the body osteopathy can offer assessment, diagnosis and treatment for. Occasionally referral to another profession or consultant is needed and I can provide a detailed letter describing my findings to help with your onward treatment.

 

A typical consultation will involve; 

  • Detailed medical case history

  • Standing/active assessment

  • Lying on the couch/passive assessment

  • Discussion of findings

  • Hands on treatment

  • Giving exercises if indicated

 

When visiting please wear comfortable, loose clothing. During assessment and treatment it will be necessary to see the symptomatic area and therefore you may need to remove some items of clothing. You will never be asked to remove underwear.
