Healing for the whole person
At the Three Valleys Osteopathic Clinic we look after the person as a whole not just the medical condition that you want treated. This means that we will spend time at your first consultation talking about you and your lifestyle as well as assessing your physical needs. There are usually 2 parts to our diagnostic process:
We will take a detailed medical history and medical examination. We may ask you to perform some easy movements to help us with this and so that we can assess your posture.
We will talk about any social or lifestyle factors that could contribute towards your diagnosis and look at understanding how they may be affecting your body.
We believe that the body is a wonderful thing and it even has its own self-healing mechanisms which can be utilised as part of the osteopathy treatment. This means that a treatment should leave you feeling better in both body and mind!
