During the first consultation a thorough case history will be taken about the presenting complaint as well as previous injuries and general health.
Using trained hands the osteopath will diagnose and treat your body as a whole to resolve the underlying cause of your symptoms, giving you long term relief of your problem.  Body type, age, general health, level of fitness, patient comfort and the degree of acuteness or chronicity are all taken into consideration when treating the complaint.  The Osteopath
may give advice on exercise and nutrition to aid the healing process.
