Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question that is not answered here, please feel free to contact us so that our team can guide you in the right direction.
Do I need a referral to see an Osteopath?
You do not need a referral to see an osteopath and you can book with us directly. If you have suffered an event or injury that is covered by ACC we can lodge a claim for you.
What shall I bring to my appointment?
If you have any x-rays with or without a report, any test results or scan finding they may help us please bring them along.
What shall I wear?
As osteopaths are hands on practitioners, comfortable loose clothing is helpful as we will usually be moving parts of you body. You can bring shorts or appropriate clothes to change into here.
What else to expect?
We will take a full history on your initial visit and ask you about your problems and symptoms. This includes any medication you are taking and accidents or health issues you have had in the past.
When we perform our assessment we will touch your muscles and move your joints through their normal movements and we will usually cover areas of the body away from your pain or problem as well.
There may be other clinical tests we require that we will organize for you, but we can usually advise you of our findings and make a plan to treat you on the day. Once you understand what we would like to try we will work you through your options and show you what to expect and what we hope to achieve with treatment.
Will treatment hurt?
Osteopathic treatment is targeted at working with the body and helping it recover. We test our treatment as we go making sure we avoid high levels of discomfort.
How long will treatment take?
Our appointments are for 30 minutes. As a rule we expect a lot of problems to be resolved well within 3-5 visits. Sometimes 1-2 visits are all that is required and with more complex or older injuries or conditions we may take longer.
Your osteopath will give you a treatment plan and explain our expectations of what should happen as we go. We will work with you to resolve problems effectively and efficiently.
