Your 1st Visit To Proactive Osteopathy

What To Expect

When visiting an Osteopath at Proactive Osteopathy for the first time a full medical history will be taken and physical examination undertaken.

You will normally be asked to remove some of your clothing and to perform a simple series of movements so that the mobility of your body can be evaluated.  Any point of weakness, excessive strain or specific injury will be identified.

This musculo-skeletal assessment will be considered alongside lifestyle factors such as work and leisure activities to enable a full diagnosis and suitable treatment plan to be determined.

The skilled techniques of our practitioners can allow you a speedy return to normal activity. Treatment is aimed at reducing pain and managing your inflammation, allowing a progressive return to normal levels to activity through treatment and advice on rehabilitation.

There are times when it is wise for you to take pain relieving anti-inflammatory medication and muscle relaxants during your osteopathic treatment to aid a speedy recovery and we can arrange this with your GP. On ocassion in the presence of suspected disc injuries, when needed, we can commision MRI scan (magnetic resonance imaging)from £225 through Vista Diagnostics.


Osteopathy and Safe Practice

Osteopaths are trained to recognise and treat many causes of pain. Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and manual treatment which is recognised by the British Medical Association as a discrete clinical discipline. Osteopaths are statutory regulated by the General Osteopathic Council who are charged with mataining standards, ethics and quality assurance of training.

Osteopathy is a state regulated profession which is governed by the General Osteopathic Council. As a result of state regulation, patients consulting an Osteopath now have the same safeguards as when they visit a doctor or dentist.
