Initially a full medical history will be taken and you will be physically assessed. You will normally be asked to perform a simple series of movements so that the mobility of your body can be evaluated. This biomechanical assessment will be considered alongside lifestyle factors such as work and leisure activities. It is generally helpful during this assessment to see the patients spine, so if you are not comfortable undressing to your underwear please wear appropriate clothing such as leggings/sports shorts and a vest top.
At the Monkton Farleigh Osteopathic Practice we are keen to treat your symptoms to get you pain free, but also to tackle the underlying cause of the problem to prevent recurrence.
