|About||Health and wellness tips and advice from Sutton Osteopathy - special expertise in treating back/neck pain, headaches, arthritis, sciatica...|
We do our best to make people feel at ease. It is understandable if you are anxious about your first visit, but please be assured that you are in control at all times. I like to communicate with people, to explain what I think is going on with their body, and the ways I think I can help.
The first visit lasts 45-60 minutes to allow enough time to listen to you properly, as well as to treat you. (Subsequent visits are usually 30 minutes.) In order to understand a person’s health we will ask about any previous injuries or surgery, as these are often relevant; for example, if you broke your leg when you were 10 years old, this may have resulted in a slightly shorter leg, which will have an effect on your hips, spine; or if have a lung condition, this will affect your shoulder and neck function; an old ankle sprain can place strain on the knee etc…
So that we can carry out a comprehensive examination it is helpful for the osteopath to be able to see the spinal curves, the position of the major joints (e.g. knees/hips), changes in muscle tone, skin colour etc. In order to do this it is ideal if you are prepared to undress to your underwear. However, please feel free to bring gym kit or shorts if you are more comfortable this way, or to remain fully clothed.
Our aim is that you feel comfortable and at ease at all times.
