Case History & Examination
Assessment can range from simple movements, to checking pulses and blood pressure or power and reflexes. n occasion we may refer you back to your GP for further testing or for imagine such as an MRI or X-Ray.
We will look at your posture and run through active ranges of movement taking note of any painful or pain-free movements. We will also passively assess joints, which is where we move the joints for you.
We will also use our sense of touch, to feel muscle tone, restriction and to help identify which ares may be sensitive. This will assist us in creating a working diagnosis of your condition. If we feel osteopathy is not appropriate for you, we may refer you to your GP or a specialist.
In order to facilitate a full examination of the spine or problem area, you may be asked to to undress to your underwear, so please wear something you are comfortable in, you are welcome to wear a t shirt and or shorts if you prefer.
