Osteopathic Therapy

HELPING YOUR BODY TO HEAL ITSELF

WHAT IS AN OSTEOPATH?

As an Osteopath, I am trained to use our hands over a four-year training period. With the understanding of your body structure (anatomy and physiology) including the study of how injuries develop (biomechanics); I developed a very good sense of finding which tissues in your body are strained or stressed.  – Joselito dela Cruz BSc.

What should patients expect on their first visit with the Osteopath?

  • Your medical history will be asked.
  • We will carry out an Osteopathic Examination (gowns and shorts are provided).
  • We will explain to you our current findings.
  • We will explain why further tests or investigations are required.
  • We will describe what the treatment is involved.
  • Osteopathic treatment will be carried out with  your verbal permission.
  • Advice or exercises may be prescribed.
  • A follow-up visit will be arranged.

We usually expect some change during the first 3-4 visits which, indicates that we are on the track in helping the patient get better.
