This depends on many factors, including the specific condition and it’s level of chronicity, general health, age, lifestyle and compliance with advice given by your Osteopath. Most patients feel benefit from the first couple of visits, and further treatments are used to address the underlying causes of the problem, and to reduce the likelihood of recurrence. Treatments will usually be gradually spaced out as a treatment programme progresses, to provide lasting relief.

The length of time a problem will normally take to respond to treatment will be discussed with you by your Osteopath.
