How many treatments will I need?

This depends on the individual and the nature of the condition. If a joint will not move freely, for example, it is probable that this condition has developed over a number of years. Osteopathic treatment can release ‘bind’ or adhesions (fibrous tissues that form across damaged joints) preventing full mobility by manipulation. Treatment increases the range of movement, and more importantly — relieves the pain. Several osteopathic treatments may be required because the joint can stiffen between the treatments.

ACC research shows that osteopathy is more effective and seems to require fewer treatments to achieve the same outcome (i.e. you are effectively pain-free after injury) than other physical therapies (e.g. physiotherapy or chiropractic).

Please see the PDF (pdf) download: using ACC data comparing osteopathy to other physical therapies.
