Your first visit
If you're a first-time client at Amy Holmes Osteopath, you'll need to give us some information about your background, medical history and the nature of your condition. This is so that we can provide the best possible care, tailored to your specific circumstances.
A bit of paperwork
We'll have some brief paperwork to fill in on your first visit. This paperwork provides us with general information about you and your condition.
During your first consultation you'll discuss any health-related issues and concerns. You'll also learn about potential treatment options.
History and examination
In order to pinpoint your problem, the osteopath will ask you a number of questions related to your condition. A variety of targeted tests will be performed to determine which tissues are affected and to what extent.
Once the examination is complete, patients will generally have their first treatment during this same visit. This may include spinal adjustments and physical therapy.
Before leaving, you'll be given instructions on certain activities or procedures to be carried out at home. This may include ice or heat applications, avoidance of certain activities or positions, as well as home exercises.
Scheduling the next appointment
Treatment options for your condition will also be discussed at this time.
