What to Expect
First, you will have a consultation with one of our osteopaths. Together you'll discuss your health-related problems, concerns and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for them to learn more about you, your condition and expectations in relation to how Huddersfield Osteopathy can meet and achieve your goals and which of our experts will be best suited to undertake your treatment plan.
After your consultation, one of our team will perform a complete osteopathic examination which will test your reflexes and flexibility. In addition, we will perform some standard testing on your neurological, postural and physical condition. Please note that we will only proceed with any examination once we have your full consent to do so. Your privacy and security are of our utmost value at all times at Huddersfield Osteopathy.
Report of Findings
Once the information is collected and examinations are performed, one of our osteopaths will give you a detailed report of all findings and answer any questions including:
- How can you help me?
- How often do I need to come in?
- What will my treatment cost?
- How do I maintain my improvements?
After reviewing your health history, goals and examining your spine and X-rays, we will discuss recommendations and notify you if your condition requires care with other providers. We will provide the best treatment and wellness program for your needs.
At the conclusion of this initial appointment, you can choose to experience your first treatment. This may include spinal adjustments, physical therapy, and/or soft tissue massage. Treatment is interactive, so you can express concerns about the different styles of treatment anytime.
As part of your treatment at Huddersfield Osteopathy, we will suggest a wellness programme for you to incorporate outside of your treatment. For example, if you are in pain when you first come to us, we may suggest ice or heat application to compliment our treatment. We will suggest certain activities to or positions to avoid as well as some home exercises and/or stretches. If you desire, our team will work with you to create healthy habits and routines for your lifestyle.
Everyone is unique and therefor requires a customised wellness plan. Helping you to achieve good spinal alignment, a healthy diet, an achievable exercise plan and a positive mental state is all part of our philosophy and belief at Huddersfield Osteopathy.
