What to Expect During Osteopathy Treatment?

During your 1st consultation with your Osteopath, your Osteopath will listen to what it is that is bothering you, your injury or pain, and run through your health history. Your osteopath will examine how well you are moving and perform some tests.

From here your Osteopath will explain what exactly is going on with your injury and what the process involves to restore function and movement. If warranted your Osteopath can refer you off for further investigation such as X-rays, ultrasounds or MRI’s.

Treatment is hands on and includes soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, stretching, myo-fascial release, dry needling, taping, trigger point therapy and restoring movement patterns through exercise prescription.

At the end of your treatment your osteopath will give you a ‘roadmap to good health. This allows for clear understanding of what is going on in the body and what has been the cause. This will give you time frame of how long you expect recovery to be. We will also give you some take home exercises to assist recovery and also some lifestyle recommendations.

Treatment can consist of a range of different techniques such as massage, manipulation and dry needling.Chiropractic care would be similar in regards to a case history, examination and treatment. However, depending on the chiropractor, a lot do not use soft tissue techniques and perhaps would not go into as much detail as we do for management. Their focus is to ‘realign’ the spine to have a positive effect on the nervous system. Decreasing pressure on nerves exiting the spine, therefore reducing sensitivity and pain.”}}]}[/tcb-script]
