There are many reasons for visiting an Osteopath. The cause of your ailment can arise from all manner of reasons ranging from poor posture to involvement in a road traffic accident. Whatever the cause your treatment will follow an individually tailored, tried and tested pathway.
Step 1: Finding out What is Causing Your Ailment.
A thorough diagnosis and treatment plan will be explained to you so that you are fully aware of how your treatment should proceed. The Osteopath will explain what will happen during the treatment sessions.
Step 2: Treatment and Review
Once the treatment has commenced the Osteopath will monitor your progress closely giving any relevant advice to you to help your condition improve. This may involve some strengthening or stretching exercises to help stabilize the effected areas or advice on posture or posture related situations.
Step 3: Post Treatment Advice and Review
After your course of treatment the Osteopath will advise you on your continued progress so that hopefully the problem won't re-occur. One of the best ways to ensure that this won't happen again is to follow the route of preventative maintenance by arranging regular "MOT" visits to your Osteopath.
