Remember that old childhood song?
“The thigh bone’s connected to the hip bone, the hip bone’s connected to the back bone…”
Well when it comes to Osteopathy and the way we think about your body, the old skeleton song could not be more relevant.
During an Initial Osteopathy Consultation, we always start by asking about your previous injuries. The reason is that we are trying to create a timeline of events that may have led to your presenting complaint. For example, most of us remember having rolled an ankle at some point – but do you remember limping around the office for half a week until the pain settled down? It’s most likely that you didn’t think anything about what this might lead to down the track. Perhaps try limping around the office now to get an idea of what the rest of your body will do to compensate for a common injury like this.
