This depends entirely upon the problem and your osteopath will advise you if they feel that you would benefit from coming for regular treatment. Some patients will come for one treatment and not need to come for years, since they are symptom free. Other patients are so impressed with how they feel after treatment that they decide that they want to come on a regular basis to prevent the aches and pains. As a profession, we encourage patients to manage their own health and will often discuss with you how to keep supple and symptom free by perhaps exercising, stretching, going to pilates classes etc.
