How many osteopathic treatments will I need?

It depends on how severe and complex your condition is, if you are able to make the lifestyle changes suggested, and carry out the exercises recommended by your osteopath. You can rest assured that your osteopath will discuss your options with you, and only advise you to make appointments that are necessary. Your osteopath should be able to give you an indication of the approximate amount of treatments needed after your first visit.

For some acute conditions your osteopath will expect to see significant improvement and pain relief within 2-4 treatments. Problems that you have neglected or chronic conditions may require more regular osteopathic treatments.

It must be emphasised that each individual is unique therefore some people will require more or less osteopathic treatment before their symptoms improve. The ideal objective is for your total recovery with no recurrence of the problem. If your problem does not seem to be resolving within these sessions, you may be referred to your GP.
