Each case is different. A osteopathic plan is suggested following the first visit. For example , it may consist of 6 to 10 sessions over a period ranging from 8 to 20 weeks. Each plan is different depending on the case . Everyone can have access to sports osteopathy .
Patrice Bélanger, DO, sports osteopath: “A person usually chooses a consultation according to their needs. A chiropractor for manipulation, a dietitian for a diet plan , a massage therapist for a massage. I try to provide the right consultation depending on the situation . If the client needs nutritional advice , I give it . If the client needs information on exercises or on how to improve his performance , I provide the information . If he needs to learn how to correct an imbalance of a shoulder, I teach him. I attempt to give the right indication depending on the problem and not tying the client in on a predefined session plan in advance.”
Exception :For those who wish to receive 2 or 3 sessions and then return as needed, it is possible to adapt to this kind of situation. These are often people who have consulted various types of therapists, such as chiropractors, physiotherapists , massage therapists, doctors, naturopaths , etc. for years. These people know their state of health and consult when they feel the need . There are clients who consult about 2-3 times a year on a regular basis.
