How many treatments will I need?
This usually depends on the length of time you have had the problem and its severity. The average number of osteopathic treatments patients have is between five and six.
Your level of health, age and stress all have a bearing on how fast your body will heal and in turn how many treatments you will need.
Visits become less often as your body stabilises. But it is important to remember that each visit builds on the one before.
Once the initial problem is resolved, patients often opt for maintenance osteopathy or massage (or a mix of both) to help prevent the pain or injury returning.
We give self-care advice and often recommend exercises or lifestyle changes to speed recovery and maintain improved health.
