If you are experiencing pain or symptoms of a problem, you may want to visit with an Upper Beaches osteopathy specialist. At Beach Integrated Health Clinic, you can find an osteopathic physician who can diagnose and treat your problems holistically. You may be wondering what to expect at your first appointment.
What to Expect
At your first appointment, after completing a brief information and consent form, you will be welcomed by your osteopath. First, we will take a history of your symptoms, general health, and any other relevant medical history. If you are currently taking any medications, it will be helpful if you can bring a list of medications with you to your first examination.
For the examination, you will be asked to undress to your underwear. You are welcome to bring shorts, or we can provide them for you if you feel more comfortable. As osteopaths, we look holistically at the entire body. We may need to assess areas that aren't necessarily painful but could be contributing to your health symptoms. Specialists tests like reflexes, muscle strength, and blood pressure checks may be performed.
We will then explain your diagnosis, and if appropriate, we can begin any corresponding treatment right away. This might involve soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, and stretches. These should not be unduly painful as all of our osteopaths are highly trained and experienced. Our goal is to alleviate the pain that you are suffering from and help you get better.
