Osteopaths work under the principle that there may be a number of contributing factors to the symptoms and therefore look at the whole body to see where and what the contributing factors are. Other contributing factors such as associated areas that may be contributing to the issue, including past trauma, environmental factors and the family’s health history may also be considered and discussed.
All follow up sessions with our registered osteopaths will usually last up to half an hour.
We will complete a detailed questionnaire relating to your pregnancy, labour and the child’s medical history. Occasionally we may request you to undress your baby or child to their nappy or underwear. However this is not always necessary and is entirely at your discretion.
Based on the information gathered your osteopath will form a diagnosis and treatment plan, giving you an indication as to the number of sessions that may be required. For some individuals just one session may be enough, however some more complicated cases may require a longer course of treatment.
