What to expect during your visit
Each treatment will include assessment and manual treatment along with advice. Tailoring each treatment depending on what the patient’s body needs that day and using a broad spectrum of skill sets to achieve the best result that I can for you.
Your first appointment will be approximately 45 – 60 min long, which will include a detailed health history along with an initial assessment and treatment. The follow-up will be approximately 20 – 30 min long and will include ongoing assessment and treatment. The goal is to reduce the number of treatments needed by encouraging the self-healing, self-regulatory systems innate to your own body. As you become stronger and healthier, you and your practitioner will reassess to see when treatments can become very infrequent or stop altogether.
You will remain fully clothed at your osteopathic appointment. It is suggested that you wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. OMTs are trained to assess a range of movement and palpate areas of restriction in the body. Wearing comfortable gym-type clothes will ensure you will receive the most out of your appointment.
