Best Osteopath - How To Choose The Best Osteopath
Updated: Aug 10
The best osteopath is one who listens, gives you time you need and the attention you deserve.
First of all, a good osteopath should ask the right questions to understand your condition, how it is affecting your life and what you want to achieve e.g. reduce pain, move more easily, increase sporting performance, work comfortably, sleep better or you may just want to get back to doing the things you love.
Next, A great osteopath will perform a thorough clinical assessment, involving musculoskeletal and range of motion tests. Then deliver safe, evidence based treatments supported by a personalised recovery plan.
Most importantly, the right osteopath for you is usually an osteo who has experience easing your particular type of pain, treating your individual condition, rehabilitating your specific injury or improving your ability for a specific physical activity.
