How:

During your first osteopathy session, the osteopath will ask about your symptoms and previous medical care before carrying out a physical examination. Osteopaths use their hands to find muscle weakness, tenderness, pain and restriction in your body, particularly around your spine.

Your osteopath will then use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to relieve muscle tension and enhance the blood supply to your tissues. They may also provide advice on your posture and movement, and exercise to aid recovery and prevent symptoms recurring.

FAQ:

What would my initial consultation include?

Your osteopath will begin the consultation by asking questions about your problem, your general health, other medical care you are receiving or medication you are taking. All the information provided will be confidential and recorded.

Your consultation will follow with a physical examination. It is possible that the osteopath will ask you to remove some of your clothing. If you are uncomfortable about this, inform your osteopath immediately. You should expect privacy in order to undress and a gown or towel should be provided. You can ask a friend or relative to accompany you and be present throughout your treatment.

Your osteopath will ask you to perform specific movements and stretches to observe your posture and mobility. Often, pain or stiffness that you are experiencing in one part of your body may be linked to a problem elsewhere.

Your osteopath will examine the health of the joints, tissues and ligaments using their hands, and will also screen for signs of serious conditions they cannot treat and may advise you to see your GP or go to hospital. They should provide you with a letter explaining what they believe to be the problem.

What is the difference between Osteopathy & Sports Therapy?

Osteopaths are allied health professionals that treat the body holistically, meaning they will look at all aspects of a patient’s lifestyle in order to determine where the problem may be coming from. Often, musculoskeletal injuries are multi-factorial and require a multi-modal approach.

A Sports Therapist is a health professional trained to deal mainly with musculoskeletal conditions that have occurred in a sporting environment. Sports Therapists are specifically trained to rehabilitate an athlete from the acute phase of the injury until they are ready to return to sport.

Would an osteopath just crack my joints?

High velocity thrust (HVT) are manual therapy techniques often used by osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists and doctors. The application of HVTs often improve patients’ musculoskeletal symptoms. However, in order to improve your symptoms there are many other interventions that an osteopath may choose, this could include exercise, soft tissue manipulation, advice, muscle energy techniques etc.
