What to expect

Visiting an Osteopath

When you visit an osteopath for the first time a full medical history will be taken and you will be given an examination.

You will normally be asked to remove some of your clothing (as in any medical procedure) and to perform a simple series of movements so that your general movement and especially any restrictions in mobility may be assessed. Any points of weakness, excessive strain, muscular hypertonicity or specific injury will be identified.

Depending on your presenting symptoms and clinical findings, further medical examinations may need to be performed to aid diagnosing the exact cause of the problem and give an accurate diagnosis and prognosis for your condition. This may of course include, where deemed necessary, referring you to your GP.

Many private health insurance schemes give benefit for Osteopathic treatment. It is essential to check your policy conditions.

Osteopathy and Safe Practice

Osteopaths are trained to recognise and treat many causes of pain. Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and manual treatment which is recognised by the British Medical Association as a discrete clinical discipline.

1n 1993, Osteopathy became the first major complementary health care profession to be accorded statutory recognition. This means only those practitioners satisfying its educational and ethical standards will be entitled to call themselves Osteopaths. A register of all Osteopath is held by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). (It is against the law to call yourself or advertise as an Osteopath unless you are on this register).

Patients have the same safeguards as when consulting a Dentist or Doctor. Osteopaths work within a system of high standards of training and practise with a rigid code of ethical conduct.
