Referral by your GP is not necessary, communication with them may be helpful but only be done with your consent.
Detailed questions will be asked about your current illness, past medical history, eating habits and lifestyle. Stress levels and biomechanical factors are taken into account. For the purpose of Naturopathic and Osteopathic examination, you will normally be asked to remove some of your clothes in order to assess tissue health. Gentle pressure may be used not to irritate sensitive tissues but to identify areas of discomfort or weakness. Following a full evaluation and diagnosis of your condition, treatment or advice will commence in order to give you some symptomatic relief. A proposed plan to improve your quality of life will be discussed including recommendation for further investigations, if appropriate. A subsequent appointment will be suggested if required.
