Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?
As with most medical examinations, the osteopath will want to see the area that requires treatment, so you may be asked to dress down to your underwear – so it’s important to wear something you feel comfortable in. Shorts, loose jogging bottoms, vest tops or crop tops are all fine to wear for examination & treatment.
Can I bring someone with me?
Yes – a member of family or friend are fine to be with you throughout the consultation and treatment if this makes you more comfortable.
Does it hurt?
Occasionally soft tissue treatment may feel uncomfortable. The osteopath will explain what to expect before each technique and will want to know if you experience any discomfort. Feeling tired, soreness and stiffness is a normal and a healthy post treatment reaction, which usually subsides within 24-48 hours. Similar to what you would experience after exercise.
Do I need a referral?
No – Osteopaths are trained as primary healthcare practitioners and therefore can diagnose. Certain insurance companies require you to have a GP referral prior to claiming the money back.
How much does it cost?

How many sessions will I need?
This completely depends on your condition, how long you have had it for and how you respond to the treatment. The osteopath will aim to keep the treatments to a minimum and should be able to give you an estimated time of recovery and number of sessions needed within the first few treatments.
What if they can’t help?
If the osteopath does not feel that they can help your problem or they feel you require further testing before treatment commences, they will tell you the best course of action. This may involve them writing to your GP or referring you for further tests.
