When you first come to our Harrogate practice in the centre of Harrogate, one of our osteopaths will take the time to build up a detailed case history in order to ascertain the nature of your problem. He or she will ask about your current symptoms, medical history, lifestyle and diet which could provide key information for your treatment.
Next the osteopath will give you an appropriate medical examination which includes a detailed structural assessment and may include other diagnostic tests such as neurological, cardiovascular or other systemic assessments.
If extra time is needed for your initial consultation we will arrange this at no extra charge.
You will be given a diagnosis and advised whether any further investigation or referral is required before treatment.
Treatment consists not only of physical therapy but can also include advice on lifestyle, exercise, diet and other approaches such as hydrotherapy, acupuncture and ultra sound.
