What to expect after treatment

Most patients feel immediate relief after treatment; this may be permanent but sometimes further treatment is necessary, depending on the nature of the problem and individual response to treatment.

However, some patients feel a little sore after treatment. This is normal and is simply your body's reaction to the osteopathic treatment. This soreness usually wears off after 24 to 48 hours. You may be cautioned that an after treatment reaction might occur by your osteopath and he or she will suggest measures to help. Your response will depend on your condition, length of time you have had symptoms, general health, stress levels etc.

If you are at all concerned about your symptoms please call the clinic and your osteopath will give you advise or discuss with you an earlier follow up appointment.
