Ideally, going to an appointment every three to four weeks with an osteopath is usually sufficient for most people, as it helps keep symptoms at bay. Less frequent visits to the osteopath can cause deeper, more chronic problems that could worsen over time. The frequency of your visits will be determined by a variety of factors. Your osteopath will make a diagnosis based on the description of your complaint you give us and a physical examination of your body.
Most acute injuries have a predictable healing time. This can be a matter of two to four treatment sessions. Chronic or long-term conditions may be a little more difficult to determine. It will depend on whether your condition is caused or aggravated by an activity you do regularly and whether we can adjust the way or how often you do it.
