- We initially need to discuss your complaint in detail and go over your medical history. Most importantly we need to establish your goals with osteo treatment.
- Following this we will perform an assessment of you and establish a diagnosis. Largely we will see how your body and joints are moving, as well as assess what muscles and tissues are feeling tight. Depending on your presentation, we may need to perform some special tests- such as neurological testing, orthopaedic testing, taking your blood pressure etc.
- Lastly we will treat you, in a manner that is comfortable for you. We will also discuss management strategies to get you back to 100% as soon as possible, as well as prevention strategies to keep you that way.
How many treatments will you need?
This will depend on what type of condition or injury you have, its severity and how long you have had it for. We must also appreciate that individuals heal at different rates. Factors such as diet, exercise, stress, type of work, environment etc all play a part especially if you are dealing with chronic pain. Our goal is not only to treat you but to provide strategies and advice on how to get you back to functioning better, faster.
