The initial assessment includes a review of your health history and an assessment of your primary complaint. The remainder of your appointment is dedicated to treatment, discussion of treatment plan, and self-care tips.
The 45 minute follow-up is for when you have already had an assessment of your complaint and your practitioner has suggested a series of treatments. The session will include some reassessment and check-in regarding self-care.
The 30 minute follow-up may be recommended if you have an acute complaint that requires more frequent treatment at the outset of healing, or if you require a quick check-in regarding a complaint that is resolved or close to resolved, or if the patient is a child.
Depending on your current health insurance or employee benefit plan, fees may be covered in full, or in-part. Please contact your provider before your first appointment to confirm your coverage for osteopathy and massage therapy.
