What should I wear?
As with a medical examination, you may be asked to undress to your underwear, so please wear something you are comfortable in.
Can I bring a friend or relative?
Yes – if you wish, you can have someone present throughout your consultation and treatment.
Does osteopathy hurt?
Some soft tissue treatment may cause discomfort during treatment. I will tell you what to expect, and will want you to let me know if you are in pain. You may feel a little stiff or sore after treatment. This is a normal, healthy response to the treatment.
Do I need to see my doctor first?
You do not need to see your doctor first if you are paying for your own treatment. However, some insurance companies require you to see your doctor first. Osteopathy is available on the NHS in some areas – and national guidelines say it should be available everywhere for low back pain.
How much does treatment cost?

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments you need depends on the condition. I aim to give you an assessment of the number of visits required.
