At the Maple Clinic, we use a holistic approach, considering all aspects of your life, to help alleviate your symptoms and get you back to the best health as quickly as possible. When you book an Osteopathy treatment this may be a combination of structural or cranial osteopathy with Naturopathic techniques to cater for your individual needs. We use our Osteopathy, Naturopathy, Acupuncture, and Cupping training to help formulate the best treatment approach for you.
During the first consultation, we will take a full past and present medical history to obtain information about your current condition and general health. We may also take into consideration certain lifestyle factors and sporting activities which will give us a true picture of your current state of health and help ascertain how you came to be in the position you are in.
You may then be asked to remove some clothing for a physical examination to take place, where we will assess your spine and joints. You could then be asked to perform a series of movements in order for us to carry out a full postural evaluation and musculoskeletal assessment. Other general health examinations may also take place as well as a cranio-sacral evaluation.
A diagnosis will be make from these examinations and the case history. The Practitioner will then determine the best course of treatment to correct any areas of dysfunction, calm reactive tissues and correct any bio-mechanical strains that may be contributing to your current condition.
