How many treatments will I need ?
It’s a very difficult question as it depends on many individual factors including: the severity of the initial complaint; how long the problem has been present; your age, general health and occupation. Your Osteopath will devise a treatment plan that is designed specifically for you and will only ever recommend treatment when it is necessary. By giving you advice on specific stretches, exercises and posture this will all help to speed up recovery and reduce the number of treatment sessions required.
Many problems respond to just a handful of sessions and (based on national research) clients require an average of 4-6 treatments to successfully resolve the initial pain. This may be less if you respond well or if you have a chronic problem, it may take more initial treatments plus additional maintenance treatments once every 3-6 months to prevent recurrence.
