Ongoing care after an Osteopathic treatment

Advice from the General Osteopathic Council:

Due to the physical nature of the treatment, it is not unusual to sometimes feel sore or stiff in the first 24-48 hours after treatment.

The pain may move location and typically occurs during the first 48 hours post-treatment.

Your osteopath will explain any likely reactions that you should expect. If you have any concerns, it is important to contact the osteopath and ask their advice.

It may require more than one visit before your problem is resolved. The osteopath will review your progress at each subsequent visit and seek your consent to any changes to your treatment plan.
