What to expect at OsteopathiCare

   Initial Consultation

Your initial consultation with the osteopath in Ashford, Kent will last an hour and will involve the osteopath taking a detailed case history of your present symptoms and a full medical history, please bring with you a list of any prescribed medicine you are taking. The osteopath will take time to listen to you and ask questions to understand your symptoms, medical history and daily life routine. You will normally be asked to undress to your underwear for examination and treatment, please wear or bring appropriate underwear, shorts or a sports bra so that you feel comfortable. A towel is provided if and when required.

Osteopathic assessment usually includes a postural assessment, physical examination, standard orthopaedic tests and neurological examination or other necessary medical examinations. If further medical investigation (X-ray, MRI or blood test) or treatment is needed the osteopath may contact or refer you to your doctor or another specialist such as an orthopaedic surgeon with your permission and the osteopath will work in co-operation with them to tailor a treatment plan to suit your needs and provide you with the best possible care. 

Before starting treatment the osteopath will explain to you your diagnosis and the cause of your symptoms, your treatment plan and prognosis. The patient will be encouraged to ask as many questions as required. Before any treatment commences, the osteopath will ask for your consent.

Treatment generally starts on the first appointment but if the problem or medical history is complex treatment will start on the follow-up treatment appointment.
