BACK at EASE

What should I wear to my Osteopathy appointment?
As with any medical examination, you may be
asked to remove some items of clothes, so
please wear something you are comfortable in.
You are free to wear shorts and a vest top if you
would be more comfortable this way. Towels will
also be used at all times to ensure your comfort.
Can I bring a friend or relative?
Yes – if you wish, you can have someone present
throughout your consultation and treatment.
Minors under the age of 16 are requested to bring a
parent or guardian to their consultations.
Do I need to see my doctor first?
No, you do not need to see your doctor first if you
are paying for your own treatment. However, some
insurance companies require you to see your doctor
first, please check with your insurer before booking
an appointment. Osteopathy is available on the
NHS in some areas – but unfortunately not in South
Northants yet - even though the national guidelines
say it should be available everywhere for those with
low back pain. We at BACK at EASE
are working on
this and hope to be involved with an NHS scheme
in the future!
