At Kingscliff Osteopathy, we believe that 1 hour initial osteopathy appointments allows us to listen to you and ask all the right questions as it is fundamental to learning what is causing your pain and what contributing factors are stopping you from getting better. Often, our conversation will involve asking questions regarding your injury history and also your past experiences, everyday activities, ergonomics conditions, if any at work, hobbies, beliefs, expectations and your personal goals. After having obtained all the information, and with your consent, we perform a thorough physical examination and provide you with a diagnosis and a treatment plan. We aim to answer any questions you may have, such as what is causing your pain? How long will it take to improve? How many sessions will you need? We then provide a combination of osteopathic manual therapy and therapeutic exercise depending on your needs and preferences.
To be able to accomplish all of this, we just don’t feel we can achieve it in 30-45 minutes appointments. In the past, offering 45 minute initial appointments did not work for us. We felt rushed, and we did not have the time to listen to our patients properly. Hence, why we prefer 1 hour initial osteopathy appointments.
For follow up appointments, we offer the option to return for a short consultation of 30 minutes or a longer consultation of 45 minutes. Our recommendation will depend on the complexity of your case, how many problematic areas are involved, or simply if you prefer a longer consultation with more hands-on work.
