New Patients at Wrexham Osteopath
All Osteopaths Are Fully Qualified
Every Treatment Begins with Discussion
Examination Usually involves some Undressing
Osteopathic Treatment Varies from Person to Person
All Osteopathic treatment is carried out by a fully qualified, registered osteopath. Good treatment requires a good diagnosis to be made by the osteopath, so the initial part of every New Patient Appointment involves some discussion about the location of pain, when it started and how it affects your daily life.
This is followed up with questions about your past medical history, medication, general health, bodily systems, blood pressure, diet and lifestyle.
Examination typically involves undressing to your underwear so that the osteopath can see any bony landmarks and assess their movement, so it is advisable to bring a pair of shorts. If you would rather remain fully clothed, that is absolutely fine. Your comfort is our priority.
Orthopaedic tests are what professional clinicians use to help determine an orthopaedic diagnosis. These mostly involve the osteopath moving parts of your body and asking if you feel any pain or discomfort. It is important for the osteopath to know if something hurts as that can help with the diagnosis.
