1) You will receive a comprehensive examination and a clear diagnosis. Diagnosis is essential.
While in some complex cases I see there is no one precise driver of someone’s pain, there are many times that there is a cause of a chronic pain issue and it has simply been missed. While I can’t pick up everything, I don’t pretend I know what’s wrong when it seems there might be some missing clinical information in a stubborn case and that the tools of osteopathy may not be enough. In these cases, I can refer you to great people who might be able to help further. I won’t leave relevant stones unturned.
Many chronic pain conditions involve longer-term changes in the sensitivity of the nervous and immune system, so it’s not so clear-cut. If this is you, there are still many ways to start moving forward.
2) I won’t suggest I can treat you unless I am confident that the nature of your problem can be reasonably addressed by the treatment approaches I provide. If there are other aspects to your condition that I can’t address, I will work together with other appropriate professionals who can address these factors.
