Q. How effective is Osteopathic treatment?

Scientific and medical studies have consistently shown osteopathic treatment to have high patient satisfaction for management of back, neck and other musculoskeletal pain.

NB: Your osteopath will expect to see positive results within 3-6 treatments for common symptoms.

However, each individual and each condition is unique so it is important to understand that the treatments required before symptoms improve will vary from person to person.

Q. How will I feel after the treatment?

Occasionally, you may be more aware of your symptoms for a short time following treatment. This is due to the release of certain chemicals that make nerve endings very sensitive. This is a normal response and will resolve within 24-48 hours.

Q.How long will my consultation take?

During your initial consultation your Osteopath will require more time to assess and apply treatment to your condition so allow yourself between 40 to 50 minutes. All subsequent consultations should take 15 to 25 minutes on average.

Q. Is Massage or Osteopathic treatment covered by private health insurance, WorkCover or Motor Accident Authority?
