What to expect
During an initial osteopathic consultation, a thorough case history is taken allowing the osteopath to gain insight into your condition, individual goals and how to achieve them through a tailored management plan.
The case history will assist the clinician in forming a diagnosis further guiding their clinical examination.
After the examination your clinician will explain the detailed findings as well as discussing the best possible course of action.
