Osteopath Cork

YOUR FIRST VISIT
Your first consultation with the practitioner will focus on taking a detailed medical case history, performing a full biochemical assessment and formulating a diagnosis of your complaint.

If the practitioner has any concerns about your condition, they refer you to the appropriate specialist.

If treatment is indicated a treatment plan will be discussed with you.

Some conditions may require one treatment, while others have a more long-term prognosis.

WHAT TO EXPECT

• The practitioner will ask about any medication you are taking or the results of previous scans or investigations. It is therefore helpful to bring a list of medication and copies of scans or medical reports.

• As it is important to fully assess mechanically, you maybe asked to undress to your underwear. Please do bring shorts loose trousers or a vest, if you would prefer.

• Our service is a hands on treatment designed to make changes to body tissues. Some people may feel some temporary soreness afterwards.

The main aim is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible. Therefore once the diagnosis has been reached, treatment to correct the problem will commence immediately.

OUR PRIMARY GOAL, PARTICULARLY AT YOUR INITIAL VISIT, IS TO REDUCE YOUR PAIN AND DISCOMFORT.
