Appointments take place at Ed's practice:
Bentfield Practice Rooms
4 Stonely Drive
The practice is on the ground floor and there is allocated parking directly outside. However, should mobility be of greater issue, we are happy to discuss availability for home visits should this be easier. Any home visit will be on a case-by-case basis; please call us for any advice.
Most patients self-refer as it is unusual for osteopathy to be available on the NHS, although it is an officially recognised method of treatment. Further information about this can be obtained by contacting your local Primary Care Trust.
For those wishing to take advantage of their private medical insurance, please speak to us about which insurance providers will cover osteopathic treatment. It is also worth checking with your insurer which conditions are covered and what their restrictions are in terms of the length and frequency of any treatment plan.
One of our aims is to ensure that our patients have a relaxed environment in which to be treated, therefore appointments can take up to an hour. The first visit will include a full case-history and physical examination before any treatment is started – at each session you will have a brief run-through of recent developments in your condition to re-assess the chosen treatment plan to ensure that it continues to meet your needs.
It is impossible to speculate how many treatments you might require without first conducting an assessment: some people only need a ten minute session to get them back to full fitness, other people require a series of appointments over the space of several weeks or months – we will always advise you honestly.
