Initial Consultation Case History
Your 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.

Examination and Diagnosis
You 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.
Having completed the examination and explained the diagnosis, then if appropriate your osteopath will discuss with you the treatment approach they propose using, and with your agreement will treat you with a variety of techniques which they believe are suitable for you. This may include techniques such as soft tissue massage, joint articulation, functional release, muscle energy techniques, cranial osteopathy and joint manipulation.
