After a Treatment

Most patients feel some relief directly after treatment however it is quite normal to have some soreness, tenderness, stiffness or increase in symptoms 12-48 hours after treatments, this may be in the presenting area or another area of the body. Your body has to process and work through any changes. The strongest reaction is usually after the first session (although not always), it is similar to going back to exercise for the first time in a while or doing some unusual physical activity. Your osteopath will give you some advice on how to handle any soreness and what to do and not do post treatment. If you are at all concerned about any reaction then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
