WHEN TO CONSULT – THE APPOINTMENT

Consulting an osteopath is an exercise between the osteopath and the patient, consisting on building mutual trust in our Consulting Room in Paris.
The Paris osteopath Assal, at your service, takes the time necessary to understand your problem and treat it.
In the Osteopathy Consulting Room Assal, in Paris 8, our aim is that the patient leaves the consulting room with lesser pain, because the main goal is to find the origin that causes the pain and treat it.
The osteopathy is a prevention medicine, and therefore it is important to consult an osteopath for assessment, even if there are no symptoms at the time.
For this reason, on a long term basis, in general, just 1 session every 2 months is enough to perform a regular body maintenance and therefore avoid any outbreak of new pain.

WHEN TO ASK FOR A FIRST APPOINTMENT

The first appointment at the Osteopathy Consulting Room Assal, in Paris 8

For an osteopath, each patient is unique and deserves a unique treatment.

In fact, during the osteopathy appointment, the patient goes through several phases that are necessary to understand the patient and that are an indivisible part of the total.

Anamnesis phase

At the Osteopathy Consulting Room Assal, Paris 8

During your first appointment, the osteopath takes his time in getting to know you. In fact, he will ask you precise questions about the full medical history of your body, and everything that may have implied an exterior or interior shock. Everything will be registered in order to create a medical file.

Observation phase

The observation phase is necessary to see your postural behaviour related to the space. Also, it allows to see your space functioning, as well as the various old physiologic adaptations due to your history. .

Active Test

In order to better target the problem, you will be asked to perform certain precise movements. These movements will put into activity certain muscles voluntarily.

Therefore, we will get an idea of the tissue reaches, up to what point they modify your body condition and, most of all, we will have a precise idea of your physiological functioning.

Passive Test

It consists on a phase where the osteopath is the one who palpates and examines various body tissue without the participation of the patient. This phase is necessary to increase the level of tissue diagnosis.

Treatment

Once the diagnosis has been established, a detailed explanation will be given to the patient. Then, the osteopath will develop a treatment plan and will inform about it to the patient. The treatment can then start.

End of the appointment

In general, at the end of the osteopathy appointment, a remarkable improvement of the health condition is felt. However, at times it can happen that the treatment plan has not finished yet and, in this case, another appointment will be necessary.

At the end of the appointment, the osteopath will give you relevant advice that will improve your life well-being and your health condition.

WHEN TO GET AN APPOINTMENT NEXT

After your first osteopathic appointment, the osteopath will constitute a follow up file in order to save time on the following appointments in general.

The osteopath will make sure of the progress of your health condition, and this will allow to jump directly into your necessary treatment phase..

WHEN TO GET A PREVENTION APPOINTMENT

 

Should we ask for an osteopath appointment only when we are in pain?

The answer is NO. It is preferable to act before the pain appears. Once the pain has appeared, it is nothing but the final expression of the organism suffering, sounding like an alert.

The osteopathy is, above all else, a manual medicine for prevention. It is necessary to know that a regular treatment is essential in order to achieve an optimum health condition.

In fact, the body has a capacity of self-healing that has always amazed us. All along our lives, we suffer traumatic exterior shocks (car accident, falling on our buttocks, etc.) or interior shocks, that is, psychological shocks (decease of a family member, divorce, etc.) and all these disrupt our physiological functioning, although we forget it as time passes by.

However, our body does not forget them. It is like an aluminium folding paper, that we crumple and that tries to unfold itself, but it never really turns back to as it was before. It is where the osteopath steps in, in order to separate bit by bit the several folds and therefore allow the body to find its physiologic freedom again, as well as its vital strength. The aim of an osteopath is, therefore, to put back in harmony the different functions of the human body (Vascularization, Nervous, Somatic and Psychic of the patient).
