COVID-19Your initial consultation case history or case update is currently being carried out via either by a phonecall or video conference call (depending on your preference). This is to minimise the amount of time you will spend in the clinic and so will help to reduce any risk of exposure to COVID-19.
Initial Consultation Case HistoryYour consultation will start with your osteopath asking about your medical history including details about the current problem, any other history of musculo-skeletal problems, any other medical problems, diagnosed conditions, operations, history of accidents and family history, as well as any other information they may feel is useful based on the information they gather.

COVID-19Once you and your osteopath have completed your case history you will be able to come into clinic for the examination, diagnosis and treatment aspect of your consultation.
Examination and DiagnosisYou will then be asked to perform some movements which relate to your presenting symptoms to enable your osteopath to see how your body functions within it's structure. Your osteopath will then examine you, using relevant diagnostic tests related to your presenting symptoms to help determine the possible causes of your condition.
Once a full case history has been taken and diagnostic tests have been completed, your osteopath will explain what they believe is causing your problems and the reasons why this may have occurred.
