Osteopathic treatment starts with an interview and examination surveying the patient’s condition and medical history. The osteopath designs the treatment individually for each patient. If you have any medical certificates or X-rays, please bring them with you to the practice. Preliminary knowledge together with the evaluation guarantee you a safe treatment.
The aim of the treatment is to increase the mobility of joints and the metabolism of tissues, reduce pain and normalize the body functions as a whole. The treatment is gentle but if the tissues are sore, some discomfort might be experienced.
The number of sessions depends on what is being treated. If the problem is acute, one or two sessions may be sufficient but a more chronic problem usually requires several treatments.
Susanna also does kinesiotaping.
