After making an appointment, you can always expect the following from your Osteopath
Full case history
When you first visit an osteopath a full case history will be taken
Then I will ask you to perform a simple series of movements. Using a highly developed sense of touch, called palpation, I will identify points of weakness, imbalance, or excessive strain throughout the body.
I may need additional medical investigations such as x-rays. This allows for appropriate diagnosis and a suitable treatment plan to be developed.
I was told by an orthopedic surgeon that my lower back condition was critical and he could schedule me for surgery within a week. I couldn’t afford private care so I went to Tony. After six months of weekly treatment I got another MRI scan and was informed by the consultant that I would not be needing surgery.
Three years after a diagnosis of fibromyalgia by my GP, I went through the medical process until I felt I could not take the heavy doses of medication any more.
After taking my full case history, Tony found a link to my RTA 7 years ago and my diagnosis was an unresolved whiplash injury. I began feeling better after only my 1st treatment and by the 5th I was no longer constantly tired. I'm thankfully still improving after 12 treatments.
