What do Osteopaths do?


Osteopaths diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems related to altered mechanics, function and posture. Pain can come from poor posture, injury, repetitive strain, general illness or as part of the normal ageing process. Osteopathic assessment includes evaluation of the extent to which the patients' presenting symptoms may be significantly influenced by poor mechanical function in both the symptomatic and non-symptomatic areas of the spine and associated structures. Integrated osteopathic treatment aimed at improving overall function can therefore be effective in reducing pain and managing patients' symptoms.

What to expect when you see your Osteopath? Osteopathy is a patient centred system of healthcare. A first appointment generally lasts longer than subsequent appointments, to allow the Osteopath adequate time to:
  1. Listen to you
  2. Take a full history & medical history from you (your confidentiality is assured)
  3. To examine you (to examine you properly it is likely the Osteopath will ask you to remove some of your clothing, tell your Osteopath if you are uncomfortable about this. You will be given privacy to undress and a gown will be provided. You can ask a friend or relative to accompany you during your treatment if you wish)
  4. To discuss treatment options for you
  5. To obtain your consent for treatment
  6. To initiate / start your treatment
Your Osteopath will give you a clear explanation of what they have found (their diagnosis), and discuss a treatment plan that is suitable for you that may include lifestyle changes. They will explain the benefits and risks of treatment they are recommending.

Should your Osteopath find that you have a medical condition underlying your symptoms / pain he may refer you to your GP or hospital, whichever is appropriate.
