What is an Osteopath?Osteopaths are trained experts in injury diagnosis, injury treatment, exercise prescription, injury prevention, rehabilitation and many other areas of sport and health and fitness.
What should I wear to my appointment?If we are treating your feet you will not be asked to undress but if we are treating your spine, you will be so comfortable and modest underwear or even a pair of shorts is appropriate.
Can I claim on my health insurance?Many private health insurance policies provide cover for osteopathic treatment. It may be possible to claim for a course of treatment but you should check in advance with your insurance company before seeking osteopathic treatment, in order to confirm the available level of cover and whether you will need to have a referral from your GP or a specialist.
What do I need to bring?
Be prepared to provide your previous medical or surgical history. If you have them and if they are relevant bring scan/MRI reports, and list of medication. You may wish to bring shorts and t-shirt.
How do I make an appointment?
How do I cancel or reschedule my appointment(s)?
Call the Clinic in which you go to for all your regular appointments. Please try and let us know at least 24 hours in advance so we can give the appointment to another client.
How many visits will I need?
The number of treatments will vary depending on the problem and individual. After a thorough assessment, the Osteopath will discuss their treatment plan for the rehabilitation process.
Do I have to be referred by a doctor?
No, our team can assess and treat you without referral by a doctor. However most health insurers require a doctors referral before they authorise cover of fees, some only require a phone call.
