The Guildhall Practice is a multi-disciplinary practice offering a number of differnt therapists, including an Osteopath in our Birmingham city centre practice. Our Osteopaths work as a team, all of whom will consider you as an individual, and treat you according to your individual needs.
Osteopathic treatment is suitable for anyone; we frequently treat newborn babies right through to patients in their nineties in the treatment and management of a wide range of complaints.
Whilst Osteopathy is best known for treating back pain, it is not the only thing that Osteopaths do! Osteopaths primarily treat using their hands to reduce muscular tension and improve the mobilty of joints, by using an approach which is both holistic and patient-centred.
Your Initial Osteopathic Consultation.
At the Guildhall Practice your initial appointment with one of our Osteopaths will be forty five minutes. For follow up Osteopathic appointments we allow thirty minutes.
During the initial consultation your Osteopath will take a case history and take you through appropriate tests in order to diagnose your complaint. It is our experience that normally with most patients we are able to commence treatment immediately, during the first consultation.
Performance Related Injuries.
