No need to undress
light flexible clothing can easily be worked around allowing you to enjoy your treatment in comfort whilst relaxed (light comfortable clothes are better though than skinny jeans and wooly jumpers!).
Choice of 30 or 60 minute follow up treatments
no one likes to be rushed, your health is the most important thing, so where appropriate, longer sessions are available. These are also great for my patients who travel from far and wide to have treatments, but also for cases where the faster pace of life is a contributing factor, relax, slow down, breathe, its all going to be alright.

Here's what my patients are saying ...
So what will happen @ your first appointment?
Your first appointment will take up to an hour to complete and in nearly all cases we aim to spend a considerable amount of this time in treatment to start getting you better on the day.
You'll be asked questions to understand your present condition, how it came to be with you and how its affecting your life. Further interest will be taken about your overall medical picture, both past and present so that I can gain a true understanding of who you are and how you've come to be in pain today.
By this stage, I'll have a good idea what the problem you are experiencing is all about, and you'll be free to ask as many questions as you wish so that its firm in your mind too, in fact is worth mentioning that at any stage you can ask me questions, its your body, your appointment and its you that needs to be fixed.
Then you'll be asked to lie down, face up in most cases, on my treatment couch in the most comfortable position for you. It might then be required that I conduct further tests if appropriate.
Treatment options and likely outcome will then be chatted through with you and then treatment can begin (where appropriate that is).
At the end of the treatment sessions, a comparison as to how you were before treatment and how you are at the end will give us both a firm indication of whether you can be fixed and how long this might take all things being equal.
You'll end the treatment session with more answers than you started and for most of my patients feeling considerably easier of both body and mind, safe in the knowledge that someone else has your back.
A follow up appointment time/date will then be decided upon and booked there and then. For acute cases of discomfort, this should be within three to five days, for more chronic cases then anytime in the next week is best.
My personal guarantee to you
I've always said that anyone who guarantees 100% that 100% of their patients can get 100% better 100% of the time, is either a mad man or misguided!
Its true to say, in medicine as a whole, that people respond differently from one case to the next, for reasons that all of my medical colleagues and I agree but are unsure why - it's a frustration all round!
However, the guarantee of 100% first class intentions & attention through my professionalism and commitment to improving your health picture right from the off, 100% of the time, for 100% of my patients is a guarantee that I am more than happy to give you.
I enjoy 100% of our patients being 100% happy with the way they've been treated at The Family Osteopath.

I nearly forgot to mention ...
Remember you're not alone in feeling pain and in experiencing difficulty carrying out your work and a whole host of other lifestyle activities you'd like to. It's understandable that your pain is making you miserable or worried, and feeling vulnerable like you're old before your time?
Stress is a massive contributor to you being in pain, but pain and lack of mobility in themselves are stressors too, particularly if you can't do the things in life you need or want to do.
You're in safe hands, I promise. I look forward to meeting and helping you and your family.
