All osteopaths in the UK are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath unless they are registered with the GOsC, which sets and promotes high standards of competency, conduct and safety.

Most patients ‘self refer’ to an osteopath for treatment. Although referral by a GP is not necessary, patients are encouraged to keep both their GP and osteopath fully informed, so that their medical records are current and complete and the patient receives the best possible care from both healthcare practitioners.

The complexity of each individual case will often be a guide for how many sessions are required. A recent study showed the average number of 3-4 visits to an Osteopath for a given problem, there are a lot of factors that may affect this though, your Osteopath will be able to give you a better indication after your initial consultation.

It usually takes the body 2-3 days to process a treatment, though this can be shorter or longer. It’s not always possible to say exactly how you will feel but your Osteopath will be able to give you more information at the time of treatment.

If symptoms are worse after a treatment this is not necessarily a bad thing and can be a sign of the body being in a process of change. If you have concerns or if any reactions haven’t settled after 48 hours, please get in contact and speak to one of our team.
