Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a GP referral?

Many patients are referred by their GP, but it is not essential that you visit them first. 

Can I claim via my health insurance plan?

Yes. Bledlow Ridge Osteopaths are registered with all the major health insurance companies, including specialist status with Bupa and Axa PPP. You are recommended to contact your insurance company before you begin treatment, to confirm your level of cover.

Do I need further investigations?

In some cases further investigations might be required, such as X-rays, MRI scans, blood tests etc. Should this be the case, we will advise you on an appropriate referral. 

How long will it take me to get better?

Your rate of recovery will depend on several factors including your age, general health, life-style, working habit and how long you have experienced pain. We will always endeavour to give you an indication of treatment duration during your first consultation.

Where can I park?

Parking is available on site.

What clothing should I wear?

To allow us to complete a full structural assessment, you may be asked to remove some of your outer clothing, depending on where you are experiencing discomfort; during a spinal examination you may be required to undress to your underwear. You are always welcome to have a chaperone present, should you wish. 

Can I contact you for advice?

Making a decision on which treatment modality is appropriate for your complaint is sometimes bewildering for people who have not experienced musculoskeletal problems in the past.
