FAQS

What can I expect on my first visit to an osteopath? At   the   first   consultation,   the   osteopath   will   compile   a   full   case   history   of   your   symptoms,   as   well   as   asking   for   information about   your   lifestyle   and   diet.   The   osteopath   may   also   observe   you   making   some   simple   movements   to   help   them   make   a diagnosis. You will usually be asked to remove some clothing near the area of the body to be examined. Osteopaths   are   trained   to   examine   areas   of   the   body   using   a   highly-developed   sense   of   touch,   known   as   palpation,   to determine   conditions   and   identify   the   body's   points   of   weakness   or   excessive   strain.   Osteopathy   is   a   'package'   of   care   that includes skilled mobilising and manipulative techniques, reinforced by guidance on diet and exercise. The   osteopath   will   discuss   with   you   the   most   appropriate   treatment   plan,   estimating   the   likely   number   of   sessions   needed   to treat   your   condition   effectively.   If   the   the   osteopath   thinks   that   your   condition   is   unlikely   to   respond   to   osteopathic   treatment, you   will   be   advised   about   how   to   seek   further   care.   Osteopaths   are   skilled   in   diagnostic   techniques   and   trained   to   identify when a patient needs to be referred to a GP. How long do osteopathic appointments usually last? In   general,   the   first   treatment   lasts   45-60   minutes,   and   subsequent   treatments   usually   30   minutes.   Your   first   appointment   is usually slightly longer to allow for a full case history to be taken. How much does treatment cost? Initial consultation and treatment: £40.00 Follow-up appointments: £36.00 Although   between   45   &   60   minutes   is   usually   allocated   for   an   initial   consultation   and   30   minutes   for   subsequent   treatments, fees are per appointment which may take more or less time than this. What is osteopathy? Osteopathy     is     a     primary     care     profession,     focusing     on     the     diagnosis,     treatment,     prevention     and     rehabilitation     of musculoskeletal disorders, and the effects of these conditions on patient's general health. Using   many   of   the   diagnostic   procedures   applied   in   conventional   medical   assessment,   osteopaths   seek   to   restore   the   optimal functioning   of   the   body,   where   possible   without   the   use   of   drugs   or   surgery.   Osteopathy   is   based   on   the   principle   that   the body   has   the   ability   to   heal,   and   osteopathic   care   focuses   on   strengthening   the   musculoskeletal   systems   to   treat   existing conditions and to prevent illness. Osteopaths'   patient-centred   approach   to   health   and   well-being   means   they   consider   symptoms   in   the   context   of   the   patient's full medical history, as well as their lifestyle and personal circumstances. This holistic approach ensures that all treatment is tailored to the individual patient. What do osteopaths treat? Osteopathy   focuses   on   the   diagnosis,   management,   treatment   and   prevention   of   musculoskeletal   and   other   related   disorders without   the   use   of   drugs   or   surgery.   Commonly   treated   conditions   include   back   and   neck   pain,   postural   problems,   sporting injuries, muscle and joint deterioration, restricted mobility and occupational ill-health. Do I need a GP referral to see an osteopath? Most   patients   'self   refer'   to   an   osteopath   for   treatment.   Although   referral   by   a   GP   is   not   necessary,   patients   are   encouraged   to keep   both   their   GP   and   osteopath   fully   informed,   so   that   their   medical   records   are   current   and   complete   and   the   patient receives the best possible care from both healthcare practitioners. Do GPs refer their patients to osteopaths? Yes.   GPs   refer   patients   to   osteopaths   where   they   believe   this   intervention   would   be   beneficial.   Referral   guidelines   are   provided by the General Medical Council and British Medical Association. How do I know if an osteopath is registered? All   osteopaths   must   be   registered   with   the   General   Osteopathic   Council.   You   can   use   their   on-line   Register   to   check   if   your health professional is currently registered. Can anyone call themselves an osteopath? The   title   'osteopath'   is   protected   by   law,   and   only   those   included   on   the   UK   Statutory   Register   are   entitled   to   practise   as osteopaths. Unregistered practice is a criminal offence in the UK. What training do osteopaths have? Undergraduate   students   follow   a   four   or   five-year   degree   course   combining   academic   and   clinical   work.   Qualification   generally takes   the   form   of   a   bachelor’s   degree   in   osteopathy   –   a   BSc(Hons),   BOst   or   BOstMed   –   or   a   masters   degree   in   osteopathy (MOst). Many osteopaths continue their studies after graduating. Osteopaths   are   required   to   update   their   training   throughout   their   working   lives.   It   is   mandatory   for   a   practitioner   to   complete at least 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development per year. Who sets the standards of training and practice for osteopaths? The   standards   of   osteopathic   training   and   practice   are   maintained   and   developed   by   the   General   Osteopathic   Council   (GOsC), the profession’s statutory regulator established under the Osteopaths Act 1993.
