What to expect from your first osteopathic treatment at Brighouse?
On your first visit an in depth case history will be taken focusing on your presenting symptoms. There will also be other questions about your past medical history, family history and your general health. All the information allows us to build a “holistic” picture, looking not only at the symptoms, but also at other possible contributing factors, such as lifestyle.
An examination will follow of the symptomatic area, which will include assessments and palpation of the spine, joints and muscles. Other appropriate tests may be used such as taking your reflexes or blood pressure, if required.
