What to expect from your first appointment
Adults and Pregnancy:
At your initial appointment an in-depth medical health history is taken before a focus is placed on your presenting complaint. This ensures that all contributing factors to your complaint are considered and addressed.
A thorough examination will follow, the osteopath will examine your posture, watch your movement and physically examine the area and surrounding areas to determine a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Although all styles of osteopathic technique are utilised, treatment is always applied in a gentle and respectful manner. The osteopaths at Aim Osteopathy have extensive post-graduate training in cranial osteopathy (OCF).
For your baby/child:
The clinical history will include all of the standard developmental milestones and relevant medical screening. You will be informed as to whether osteopathic treatment will benefit your child. Your osteopath may suggest exercises or activities which may assist between treatments.
We pride ourselves on liaising with other medical professionals and your child's paediatrician, as we feel that a team approach to your baby's health always produces the best outcome.
Brendan, Allison and Kristin all hold a Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy from the world-renowned Osteopathic Centre for Children in London which included time spent treating premature infants in two Neonatal Intensive Care Units within London hospitals.
