Osteopathy is a specialism offered by our service. It is a manual therapy (different to physiotherapy) used to treat problems associated with the spine and other joints.

Osteopathy is most commonly used to treat lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain.

Appointments

How do I get an appointment? 

 

If you think any of these servcies may help with your problem or condition visit your GP and ask for a referral to Wirral Community NHS Trust.  Your GP will advise you on what services are available and make the referral on your behalf.

 

We will then contact you to arrange a convenient appointment for your initial assessment.

 

Depending on your assessment, you may be offered a course of treatment and your next appointment will be booked for you before leaving the clinic.

 

We will report back to your GP regarding your treatment and any ongoing care.

 

At your first appointment your therapist will ask questions about your condition and how it is affecting you.  They will discuss what will happen during your treatment, as well as about any pain you might have.

 

You and your therapist will agree a plan of treatment and once this is agreed, your treatment will start.  Your first appointment will be approximately 1 hour and follow up appointments 30 mins.

 

Things to remember

 

  • Please wear comfortable/suitable clothing.  You may be asked to remove items of clothing to enable the therapist to treat you. For example, if you are attending for a lower limb problem, please bring a pair of shorts with you.
  • Please bring a list of any medication, if you take any.
  • Please let us know if you are unable to attend your appointment as soon as possible so the appointment can be made available for another person.
  • If you are more than 15 minutes late, you may be asked to re-book.
  • If you need to rearrange a booked appointment please call the number on your appointment card.
