Osteopath testing for disc pain by placing pressure on the patient's shoulders.

I offer osteopathy sessions for people, dogs and horses. Our sessions range from 30 to 60 minutes, and I also offer half/ full day rates if treating multiple animals.

Your first session includes:

– Case history on current complaint

– Previous medical history – in case anything from before could be contributing to now

– Health systems check – this is to help rule out any nasties early on, occasionally what appears as joint, nerve or muscular can be coming from something else, such as an organ

– General health (e.g. current medications, lifestyle, family history)

– Standing/postural assessment

– Active movement assessment

– Passive movement assessment

– Specialist orthopaedic testing/systems check where appropriate (e.g. blood pressure, neurological testing)

– An explanation of my findings – in the rare event treatment is not suitable I would explain why and refer you to the appropriate medical professional

– General advice, treatment or rehab – length of time depends on how long case history and assessment takes.

Follow up session includes:

– Reporting any updates (e.g. how you are improving)

– Quick re-assessment to help analyse your progress

– Longer treatment

– Rehab exercises and/or advice if appropriate.

Always feel free to ask me questions at any point during your appointment. My aim is to make you feel at ease and I want to educate and empower you so you feel in control of your pain.
