A classic consultation in osteopathy will take place in several stages. It will last about 45 minutes.
This will allow your osteopath to perform the different stages of this session.

When a patient arrives with a reason for consultation, your osteopath will proceed as follows:


The first phase is the interrogation. It will allow your osteopath both to compile a patient file, but above all and mainly to know you. That is to say that during each of your visits, he will ask a certain number of questions to get to know and understand your reason for consultation. But he will also be interested in your background.

This step is essential because it is the first but above all it will give an idea of the reason for the consultation without having laid hands on the patient. It will also give indications to your osteopath on which parts he will have to test. Note that if you have brought additional examinations (radio, scanner, MRI, etc.), he will examine them.



The second part consists of observing the patient and carrying out specific tests. The observation will give additional indications after the interrogation on the zones of tension and on the postural habits of the patient.
Then your osteopath will carry out tests according to your reason for consultation.


He may first perform a clinical medical examination related to the problem for which you come to see him. He will check your reflexes for example. These various observations will allow the osteopath to carry out a diagnosis of exclusion (pathology not falling under osteopathy). He will therefore redirect you to a specialist who can solve your problem.

Finally, come the classic osteopathic tests. They will make it possible to update the various osteopathic dysfunctions that the patient presents. This makes it possible to carry out a complete osteopathic assessment and thus to link these dysfunctions with your reason for consultation.



The 3rd part, and not the least, corresponds to the osteopathic treatment itself. Through various mobilizations, your osteopath will seek to treat the reason for consultation for which you came. These techniques are multiple, he will be able to work very well in an osteo-articular, functional, visceral, cranial, muscular way...



Finally, the last part consists of giving the patient advice related to the reason for consultation but also to talk about the side effects that any osteopathy session can cause. Indeed, throughout the consultation, the therapist asks for a response from your body and this can cause fatigue. This impression can persist for several days (2 to 3 on average).

The advice that your osteopath can offer you will most of the time be on the hygiene and dietary plan, but he can also advise you to do an exercise or a stretch, which he will necessarily have shown you during the consultation.
