Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear?
You may be asked to remove some clothing so wear under garments you are comfortable in or bring along some shorts.
Do I need a referral from my GP?
No! Although we get referrals from GP practices it is not necessary.
What can osteopaths treat?
Osteopaths treat a wide range of conditions that include back and neck pain, peripheral joint pain, trapped nerves, repetitive strain, headaches, sporting injuries, arthritic pain, and many other conditions. If you are unsure as to whether osteopathy can help you, please contact us to find out.
What happens if I cannot attend my appointment?
We politely ask for 24 hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment. This allows us time to offer it to someone else who needs it. Failure to attend without cancelling, unless there are unforeseeable circumstances, will result in you being charged for your appointment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required depending on the severity of and duration of your problem. Your osteopath will advise you at your initial consultation how many treatments are likely to be needed.
