How do Osteopath Work?

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners work with their hands.

Osteopathy is very much a partnership in healing and is equally about the practitioner guiding the client through a journey towards healing as well as hands-on treatment.

What happens in the first appointment?

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

  1. What is the nature of your problem?
  2. What is the cause(s)?
  3. Whether osteopathy is an appropriate and safe treatment to help your problem.
  4. At this point the session will include some hands-on therapies as well as some general lifestyle modifications.

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

How many follow-up treatments will I need?

On average you will need between 6 - 8 treatments.

How long are the appointments?

Initial appointments are 60 minutes, and follow-up appointments are 20-30 minutes long but may be longer.

What should I wear in appointments?

We recommend that you bring a pair of shorts and a sports bra to each appointment.
