On Your Visit

What happens when you consult an osteopath?

On your visit to see an osteopath.

Before any treatment is carried out, a detailed case history is taken with the patient, noting all factors that could be important in reaching a diagnosis. Such as: age, occupation, when the symptoms began and how they progressed, also full medical history.

Jitendra will explore with you what your expectations of osteopathic treatment are, and what you are wanting to gain from treatment.

If you have had osteopathic treatment before, then it is always helpful to the Jitendra to hear about your experiences, if it was a successful outcome for you, or how it could have been better for you.

It is therefore very important to the Jitendra that you are happy to say how you feel, raise any concerns and provide feedback.

Only then is an examination carried out to evaluate which part and how much of the body is involved.

After Examination, Jitendra will give you a clear explanation of what he finds (his diagnosis) and discuss a treatment plan that is suitable for you. He will explain the benefits and any risks of the treatment they are recommending. It is important to understand and agree what the treatment can achieve. As part of the management plan, it may well be that you do not want to be treated or that treatment is not appropriate. Jitendra will then ensure that he can help you by referring you onward to other health care professionals including your GP and consultants if required. If not required, he can offer other ways to help you resolve your complaint.

Patients are advised that in order to carry out a proper assessment of their pain, they may be asked to undress to their underwear. Gowns will be provided.
