YOUR FIRST VISIT

In your first consultation at JOB EFFECTIVE HEALTH, your osteopath will go through a case history. This includes asking you questions about the nature of your current problem, pain and discomfort; the location, the time of onset, pain patterns and symptoms. This will help the osteopath to understand why you have come for treatment and how best they can help you.

To best assess the current nature of your problem, your osteopath will need to know about your medical history including current medications, illnesses, past accidents; surgeries and hospital investigations. If you are on medications, it is helpful to bring a list of your current prescriptions. If you have had any investigations such as blood tests, an X-Ray or MRI scan, then bring of copy of the report with you.

Finally they will need to know about your life style. This includes your current and previous employment history, sport, fitness activities and hobbies.

The information gathered will allow the osteopath to assess if osteopathy, manual or physical therapy is appropriate for you. Your practitioner will then design and tailor his assessment, treatment and management to suit you as a unique individual. They will also discuss the best treatment approach and option for you and indicate how much treatment you will need.            Then treatment will start.

Effectiveness and safety beyond expectations.
