What happens in the first appointment?

The purpose of the first meeting is mainly to gather information. This process will include taking a complete medical history and a physical examination. After the gathering process, the practitioner will advise you:

  2. What is the cause(s)?
  3. Whether osteopathy is an appropriate and safe treatment to help your problem.

At follow-up visits, your practitioner will give more extensive hands-on treatment.
