WHAT HAPPENS ON YOUR FIRST VISIT?
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early so that you can fill out the necessary forms. Your first visit will go for approximately 45mins-1hr. You will be asked to fill out a health screen questionnaire which will help to give your osteopath an overall picture of your general health and provide you with the best possible care. This will be discussed with your osteopath. If needed, investigations such as blood pressure checks or neurological exams will be performed.
Your Osteopath will perform a structural exam of your posture, spine, joints and muscles. Restrictions in movement and/or pain during movement as well as tenderness will be looked for.
Once your examination is complete, the information gained from your history and that from the examination will allow your Osteopath to come up with a provisional diagnosis and treatment plan.
Subsequent treatments will be 30mins.
