Your health is your most valuable asset. So, whether you choose to visit an osteopath, chiropractor or physiotherapist, entrusting your health to a professional is an important decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. After all, the health professional will literally be holding your health in their hands. Ensure you’re informed. Ask the following ten questions to any practitioner you are considering. If not, you may be missing out on a complete treatment. Your practitioner may only be focusing on one local area, when there’s actually a problem with an adjacent section that feels fine to you. Inlign Osteopathy treats your whole body, ensuring you have the best chance of getting relief faster and for longer. Or will the practitioner admit they see multiple people at the same time, leaving and entering the room every few minutes? Are you effectively paying a full treatment fee when the practitioner sees other patients at the same time? Inlign Osteopathy will always dedicate 100% of your treatment to YOU and YOU only.
