FAQ

Is osteopathy effective for back pain?

Osteopathy is considered one of the more effective treatments for back pain. It’s a gentle, hands-on therapy that improves your musculoskeletal system’s function.

By working to correct any underlying problems with your spine and back muscles, osteopathy can address the root cause of your pain and significantly reduce pain, as well as potentially offering a long-term solution.

How long does osteopathic treatment take for back pain?

The duration of osteopathic treatment depends on the severity of your back pain. Acute injuries may only require a few sessions (1 to 3), while chronic pain might take longer (up to 6 or more sessions) to see significant improvement. However, every case is different. Your osteopath will assess your case and provide a personalised treatment plan.

What should I expect after a back pain treatment with osteopathy?

Most people may experience some soreness or achiness after an osteopathic treatment, but this usually subsides within 24-48 hours. It’s important to listen to your body and take it easy after a treatment to allow your body time to heal. If you experience any worsening of your pain or discomfort that lasts longer than a few days, be sure to contact your osteopath.

What should I do to prepare for my first appointment?
  • Make a list of your symptoms: Include details like location, intensity, and duration of pain.
  • Gather any relevant medical records: These may include X-rays, MRIs, or previous diagnoses.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing: This allows the osteopath to examine your back easily.
  • Be prepared to discuss your lifestyle: You may be asked for details about your job, exercise routine, and any activities aggravating your pain.
