WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR OSTEOPATHIC CONSULTATION.
Osteopathy is a wholistic type of medicine which focus on finding out the cause of your symptoms, and not simply the site of your pain or discomfort.
For this reason, initial consultations involve taking a detailed account of your current complaint and also a general medical history.
Your osteopath will then conduct a clinical assessment which may involve range of motion, strength testing, palpation and specific orthopaedic and other clinical tests. This is to identify assess areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain within your body. Once a diagnosis is reached, the osteopath will discuss this with you and commence treatment.
Osteopaths are trained in a wide variety of techniques which allows them to treat each patient with what is suitable for them. Osteopaths will often also prescribe exercise and stretches and offer ergonomic, breathing and lifestyle advice.
Please allow up to 45 minutes for your first consultation.
Initial Consultation $85
Subsequent Consultation $80
Our aim is to provide a comfortable treatment experience but like all healthcare modalities some patients may experience adverse reactions or outcomes. Patients may report feeling tenderness post treatment, which does not usually last more than 1-2 days.
Please note, acupuncture services are separate and are not part of the osteopathic treatment.
