"No ‘crick-crack’ of the spine like some other osteopathic treatment I have had before. All the work is through guided movement".
S LC Kaiser, Patient

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 and moving in order to 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.

"During the lockdown, I developed BPPV, my head was spinning and I had vertigo - it was a very frightening condition. Dianna spoke to me over the phone and carefully explained how I could do a set of movements called the Epley Maneuvers which helped to ease the symptoms. 

It has now gone away, I am back to normal and I very much appreciate Dianna’s help, and her kindness and calm reassurance."

L. Schussman (Phone consultation)
