FAQs at OsteopathiCare

  • What is an Osteopath?

    An Osteopath is a qualified musculoskeletal practitioner and must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council. Osteopaths have to undergo a four year Masters degree training course. Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive medicine that focuses on treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal system. Osteopaths use hands on techniques to reduce pain and improve mobility and posture.
  • Do I need to see my doctor first?

    You do not need to consult your doctor if you are paying for your own treatment, osteopaths are qualified to diagnose and treat patients. However, some insurance companies require you to see your doctor first.
  • What should I wear?

    As with any medical examination, you will probably be asked to undress to your underwear, so please wear or bring appropriate underwear, shorts or a sports bra so that you feel comfortable.
  • How many treatments will I need?

    The number of treatments you need depends on the condition and person we are treating. We aim to keep your appointments to a minimum. The osteopath will be able to tell you whether they can treat you or if they need to refer you to another specialist.
  • Does it hurt?

    Some soft tissue treatment may cause discomfort during treatment. The osteopath will tell you what to expect, and will want you to let them know if you are in pain. You may feel a little stiff or sore after treatment. This is a normal, healthy response to the treatment.
  • Do you take medical insurance?

    OsteopathiCare is an approved osteopathic provider for PruHealth, Aviva, Cigna, SimplyHealth and WPA.
  • Can I bring a friend or relative?

    Yes – if you wish, you can have someone present throughout your consultation and treatment.
  • Do I need to see my osteopath for regular maintenance treatments?

    Maintenance treatments are highly recommended for the prevention of symptoms and pain management. Maintenance treatments are intended to identify problems before it causes pain and to continually assess your health. Patients have found these treatment sessions to be really beneficial as they find they need less medication and they retain good mobility and an independent life.
  • What if I need to cancel my appointment?

    If for any reason you need to cancel your appointment, please call the osteopath as soon as possible. Please provide at least 24 hours notice for any cancellations otherwise the full amount will be charged for the session. This is to enable us to re-fill the now vacant slot and offer the appointment to someone else.
