What to expect
A consultation will involve:-
- questions about your medical history
- observation of your posture
- appropriate clinical tests e.g blood pressure, muscle strength, reflexes
- examination of joint movement, muscle tension, nerve health
- orthopaedic tests
- diagnosis and explanation
- discussion of an individual treatment and management plan for you
It would be really helpful if you could bring a list of medications and have a think in advance of any previous investigations, illnesses and accidents.
What to wear
The clothing you wear during examination and treatment is your choice, we want you to feel comfortable. It also depends on the areas being treated and the type of treatment you prefer - acupuncture requires exposed skin whilst massage can be done through clothing or direct onto skin. Some people wear tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt, others wear shorts and vest or underwear. As a rule, please wear loose, soft clothing rather than heavier materials like jeans. Emsworth Osteopaths will ask you what level of clothing you are happy with before commencing, so please just say.
Rebecca Butterfield (BOst)
Rebecca Butterfield has been an osteopath for 8 years and initially chose to work in clinics alongside experienced osteopaths in order to gain from their experience. Rebecca wants to keep developing her skills and learn beyond text books so she recently found a very highly regarded cranial osteopath to mentor her.
She holds a Bachelor of Osteopathy (Hons) degree (4 years training) and has done further post-graduate training to gain skills in acupuncture, cranial osteopathy, treating babies and expectant mothers. Rebecca is also interested in the effect of stress on the body, the treatment of osteoarthritis, neck pain and headaches.
Rebecca chose osteopathy because of its variety, her aim is to adapt to each persons needs by remaining versatile and through on-going training. .
