How long will it take to get better?
The length of time and the amount of treatments required to get you better will obviously depend on the severity of the injury. However, we can usually give a reasonable estimate depending on what tissue has been injured. For example, a joint sprain in the back may take 2-3 weeks to recover, where a “slipped disc” may take 6-8 weeks to recover.
There are always going to be other factors involved such as age, previous injuries, the likelihood of re-aggravation etc. At the end of your first visit, your osteopath should be able to give a reasonable idea of how long it will take for you to recover.
Is there anything I can do to help recover quicker?
Yes! Your osteo will recommend things at home/work which you can do to help with your recovery. This may involve heat/ice management, mobility exercises, ergonomic advice, stretches or targeted strengthening exercises. Or, they may suggest complete rest for a period of time to allow everything to settle.
What to expect after the treatment
Different people respond to treatments differently. In most cases, people will feel they can move more freely and have an immediate reduction in pain after. However, it is normal and not uncommon to feel sore and “worked on” for 24-48 hours following a treatment.
If you are concerned that the treatment has flared up the injury, or the pain has not subsided within a few days, don’t hesitate to call and question your osteopath about this.
Will I need to come back?
This will again depend on factors such as severity of the injury, age, previous injury, the likelihood of re-aggravation, chronicity etc. Your osteopath will educate you on the best plan of action to deal with your injury. For an acute injury, this may only require two or three visits to resolve the problem. For long-standing injuries, the best plan of action may be ongoing treatment at set intervals to prevent flare-ups from occurring.
