At Hest Bank and Kirkby Lonsdale clinics we have comfortable waiting rooms with toys for children. Upon visiting the Osteopathic Centre you will be asked to sign a consent form we will then take a full history and ask questions about the onset, progression and nature of your problem. You may be asked to perform a series of simple movements to assess mobility.
At the Osteopathic Centre you will be assessed using basic orthopaedic and neurological testing. This will tell us whether osteopathy is likely to improve your condition. If we feel that osteopathic treatment is not appropriate we will tell you, as not all conditions can be improved, and advise you an alternative approach. This may involve a referral back to your GP.
We will discuss your treatment plan and diagnosis with you. Treatment will always be tailored to your individual requirements taking into account your physical and emotional condition. We can tailor treatments to your needs or preferences and can stop treatments at any point. Treatment can occasionally be uncomfortable – but should not be painful.
The Hest Bank clinic has disabled access and easy parking.
We stock neck care pillows, hot and cold packs, thera-band, grip strengtheners and a range of back supports.
We welcome your comments by telephone or email.

Some insurance companies are covered, e.g. BUPA, Simply Health, Aviva, Benenden and WPA, but we advise you to check in advance of treatment.
