What to expect in the consultation

  • Osteopaths use their hands to diagnose and treat conditions using a finely developed sense of touch called Palpation.
  • On your first visit Andrew will take a case history to record your symptoms, medical history and relevant details of your life.
  • You will be asked to undress to your underwear or as far as is necessary to assess your posture and any areas of tenderness or restricted movement. A pair of shorts can be provided if needed.
  • You will be asked to perform a range of simple movements to determine what aggravates the symptoms and your degree of mobility. These are important to discover the probable cause of your pain. Additional orthopaedic and medical tests may be applied if necessary.

  • Andrew will discuss his diagnosis with you and how he might be able to help before proceeding with treatment.
  • Afterwards he will explain what action you can take to help relieve your symptoms and prevent their recurrence as well as how many treatments he feels are needed.
  • Andrew will always endeavour to get you better in the shortest possible time.
  • Symptoms may get worse for a short period after treatment before improving. This is normal and if you have any questions or if the pain does not improve please contact Andrew for advice on 07958 704935 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Osteopaths occasionally come across conditions that appear to be musculo-skeletal but may indicate another medical problem. If Andrew feels that you will be best treated by another professional he will not hesitate to refer you on.

Sometimes an X-ray or MRI is required to confirm a diagnosis. Andrew works with a number of top private medical scanning providers and can refer you to their services if needed.
