As with any osteopathic consultation, firstly a detailed history is taken in regard to your complaint. Based on your condition, a relevant osteopathic examination is done to help us diagnose the problem and how it is affecting the rest of your body. This examination usually involves you completing simple movements and actions to help us work out where your discomfort is coming from. Your osteopath will palpate different body areas to work out what is affected by your condition. Depending on the nature of your condition, you may need to remove some layers of outer clothing to help us gain a better understanding of what’s going on. We have gowns available for those who wish to use them. Once we determine the cause of your pain, we will discuss this with you and explain the proposed treatment plan.
