What to expect on your initial consultation?

If you have any recent X rays, MRIs or other forms of imaging please bring the report to your consultation. Following this, your osteopath will examine you. Depending on the area of compliant, you may need to dress down slightly. This will include detailed physical examination and orthopaedic testing. Your osteopath will then discuss with you a report of findings which includes a thorough explanation of your symptoms, diagnosis, the causative factors and what treatment is recommend to get the best results.
