What can I expect during my appointment?

An Osteopathic diagnosis and evaluation will be made based on your presenting symptoms and your past and present medical conditions will be considered. From here, a personalised and holistic treatment plan will be drawn up by your practitioner.

The philosophy of Osteopathy is that everything is connected. We are all different, have different movement patterns, history & lifestyles. We might also have different root causes to the same problem or pain. Each patient is unique and each treatment is therefore tailored to the patient and their needs.
