The Osteopathic Treatment
This will often involve some combination of the following:
Soft tissue treatment
Joint mobilisation (articulation)
Osteopathy causes little or no pain. For 24 to 48 hours after the treatment you may experience some minor discomfort. This is a normal part of your body’s response to the treatment. It is common for the full benefit of the treatment to be felt after 2 to 3 treatments.
When attending the clinic please bring all previous investigations you may have had regarding the problem. Please bring appropriate set of clothing such as shorts and T-shirt for examination.
