What to Expect with Your Osteopathic 
Consultation and Treatment

Neck pain and back pains are usually caused by an injury to the ligaments or joints and this can cause further pain to the nerve and muscle. Patients often refer to this as feeling like a trapped nerve.

Back ache and pain may be caused by a recent event such as sport, gardening or DIY or may be an accumulative injury that you thought would go but hasn’t.

At the initial consultation you will be asked to complete a health questionnaire and registration form. Following this a thorough initial physical assessment to identify the source of your injury and symptoms will be carried out. You will be asked questions about your health, medical history, hobbies, work and lifestyle in order that the safest form of treatment can be selected.

The findings will then be discussed with you and advice with regard to work, sport and activity will also be discussed so you will know what to expect and do after treatment.

Treatment for your back pain will normally begin at the first consultation and may involve:

  • Joint Manipulation
  • Joint Articulation and Mobilisation
  • Soft Tissue Mobilisation
  • Soft Tissue Massage
  • Ergonomic Analysis and Advice

Treatment is different for every patient but will involve various massage techniques, joint articulation to relieve tension and stretching of muscles to assist with stiff and painful joints. We will also discuss exercises that you can do to improve your posture and movement in the home and workplace should they be required.

Telephone Consultation

If you would like to discuss whether we can help you with your problem you are very welcome to call in complete confidence for a free telephone consultation.

Remember “a delay in seeking treatment can often prolong pain and allow a condition to degenerate”.
