The osteopath will use their hands to find areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction, or strain within your body, particularly the spine. 
With your consent, you'll probably need to remove some clothing from the area being examined, and you may be asked to perform simple movements.
You should then be able to discuss whether osteopathy can help treat the problem and, if so, what the treatment program should involve. Some techniques involve:

  • Massage – to release and relax muscles.

  • Stretching stiff joints.

  • Articulation – where your joints are moved through their natural range of motion.

  • high-velocity thrusts – short, sharp movements to the spine, which normally produce a clicking noise similar to cracking your knuckles
