What to expect from your video or phone consultation

Assess

Your osteopath will take a comprehensive case history and ask questions related to your presenting complaint. We can assess any relevant scans, reports or tests that you may have. Through video consult we can assess a range of aspects of your physical condition to help complete the clinical picture.

Identify

Piecing together the information from listening to your story and video assessment, we can identify the source of your discomfort. We will take the time to explain this to you so you completely understand the issue and the correct direction to take for appropriate management and healing.

Treatment Plan

We will formulate a plan with step by step actions you can take to work towards your goals. We can teach you muscle trigger point and self muscle release work to alleviate your discomfort, appropriate stretches and strengthening exercises. We will give you all the tools you need to manage your condition and feel better.

Prevent

Our aim is to empower you to be in control of your health. We can provide ideas, advice and guidance on how to prevent your presenting condition from recurring in the future.
