Do I have to take my clothes off?
Please bring appropriate clothing – ie sports clothes, as removal of top clothes is usually preferable to allow the osteopath to visualize spinal curvatures, rotations etc. As a guideline; shorts for men, sports top and shorts for women is usual. Should you request not to remove items of clothing the osteopath will still be more than happy to assess you however, it is important to note it may mean the assessment and possibly treatment is more limited.
Can I bring a chaperone?
We are happy for you to have a friend or relative to accompany you during examination and treatment.
How many sessions will I need?
Most people do require a course of treatment but the length varies greatly depending on the severity of your condition etc. As your condition improves visits become less frequent. In the long term, The OsteoRehab Clinic recommends clients return from time to time to maintain the improvements and to check that there are no further issues building up.
What training and qualifications do osteopaths have?
All Osteopaths receive training at colleges approved by the General Osteopathic Council (GOSC). These 4-5 year BSC/MSC courses cover a wide range of subjects including anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical methodology, biomechanics and osteopathic techniques. All Osteopath students are required to spend many hours treating patients under the supervision of qualified clinical tutors and only qualify after rigorous final examinations. The title Osteopath is protected by law and all Osteopaths are registered with the GOSC.
