When initially arriving at the clinic, all new patients will be asked to fill out a personal information form, detailing their injury, and any previous medical history details. In the following consultation, the Osteopath will take a full case history â€“ including past medical history.
During the examination, the Osteopath will perform a comprehensive examination, using a standard medical approach, and various orthopaedic and medical examinations to diagnose your condition.
Osteopaths utilise hands on techniques as the basis of treatment.

The Osteopath will also focus on patient education; understanding their condition, and self-management techniques. This may include stretching or exercises, nutritional advice, ergonomic and lifestyle advice.
