General FAQs on Osteopathy

Do I require a Prescription from My Doctor ?
Your osteopath is a health professional capable of making an exclusion diagnosis and can therefore receive you as a first step without a prescription from your doctor. However, certain insurances to ensure the reimbursement of the osteopathy consultation will require a prescription from your doctor, depending on the insurance company and your level of coverage, contact your insurer for more information.
Are there any side effects / counter indications for Osteopathy ?

There may be side effects after an osteopathy session but it is not mandatory. You may experience muscle aches, fatigue, and stronger aches, generally 24 to 48 hours after the session, which corresponds to the time needed for your body to adapt after the session. In any case, do not hesitate to contact your osteopath to discuss it with him and find out if what you are feeling is normal or not.
There are relative contraindications (depending on the treatment techniques used by the osteopath, your state of health, your drug treatments) to osteopathy but no absolute contraindications. The osteopath always begins the consultation with a medical examination to establish the presence or absence of a contraindication before his treatment and the techniques he can use for the treatment.

How Long should an Osteopathic session last?

The time of the session depending on the patient, his condition and the osteopath, in general 45 minutes -1 hour is sufficient for a good management.
