New patients require a longer initial appointment, as we need to collect more information. A detailed case history is taken to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the patient's complaint and other influencing factors. This includes a general medical history; any accidents, trauma or hospitalisations; an understanding of stressors in your life and current self care practices.
It is important to examine the area of discomfort properly, so please wear clothing that you can move easily in. Once a diagnosis has been made, treatment options and your expectations will be discussed. If osteopathy is not appropriate for you, or you need further medical care, you will be referred on to the appropriate practitioner.
If your visit is the result of an accident or injury, then your appointment maybe subsidised. You can fill out ACC forms with us, you do not need a referral from another health provider.
ACC states the definition of an accident to be “a specific incident, event or series of events which causes injury to a person.” The aim of ACC is to help people get back on their feet by offering subsidised treatment options and other support services depending on the severity of the injury.
