What does a visit to the osteopath entail?
The osteopath will ask in detail about various aspects of your symptoms (or your child's) and your general health. The examination may require removal of outer clothing and the osteopath may look at you standing, moving and will then gently assess body movements.
Most osteopathic treatment is gentle and should not cause undue discomfort, although assessment and treatment may require the handling of painful areas. Most people find treatment relaxing. Some patients experience soreness after treatment, similar to that felt after unaccustomed exercise. This usually lasts no more than 24 - 48 hours.
It may be necessary to carry out simple examination procedures such as taking blood pressure or testing reflexes. Most patients come to an osteopath without having first consulted their doctor. Osteopaths are trained to ensure that no serious problems are overlooked.
