Consultations are relaxed and friendly. The following section is designed to give new patients an outline of the process that we go through during a typical session. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions.
Initially, we discuss your concerns and gain an understanding of your case history, in order to fully appreciate your needs.
Like GPs, a large part of our training is dedicated to enabling us to make a safe and accurate diagnosis of your problem. Occasionally, if required we may refer you to another medical professional specific to your needs.
In consultation with you, a physical examination is performed through a variety of hands on techniques; assessing attributes such as postural alignment, joint movement and muscle tone. While it is advisable to wear suitable underwear for this process patients are able to be treated fully clothed.
The likely cause of your problem is explained to you, in easy to understand language. After agreement on the approach and expected timeframes involved, we apply carefully targeted 'hands on' techniques to the body.
During the treatment you will be given friendly advice relating to simple stretches or lifestyle changes that may help this process or prevent reoccurrence.
