Osteopathy & Back Pain Clinic

What Happens on your osteopathic consultation

On your first visit to the Hurley Clinic a full medical case history will be taken. An examination will be carried out (you may be asked to remove some clothing for this) and you may then be asked to perform a few simple movements so the osteopath can assess the problem.

Our osteopaths will use their highly developed sense of touch called palpation to assess areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction or strain within your body.

The osteopath will make a diagnosis and discuss it with you and if osteopathic treatment is suitable it will be offered to you. Treatment will be aimed at helping to restore normal joint stability and function.

Osteopaths usually start any treatment by releasing and relaxing muscles and stretching stiff joints, using gentle massage techniques, rhythmic joint movements and muscle release techniques. Our osteopath may also carry out manipulation using short, quick movements to spinal joints. Other techniques may also be used depending on your problem.

Initial treatments can usually last up to one hour, and normally between 2 and 6 followup sessions are required. Many patients decide that they would like to have periodic preventative treatments to avoid recurring problems.
