If you have a general medical practitioner that you see on a regular basis, you might think that your medical care team is complete. Unfortunately, that might not be the case. There are some instances where an osteopath might be better suited to take care of the medical issues that you're facing. You might not realise this, but an osteopath focuses on more than just the individual complaint. Instead, they focus on the body as a whole.
When you develop a minor illness or health complaint you may think it best to call the medical centre you're registered with and schedule a standard appointment to see your GP. However, most medical centres run a range of specialist clinics that may be more suitable for your needs and can offer you faster access to treatment. You can book an appointment at one of these specialist clinics in the same way you would book a GP appointment, and in certain circumstances, you may see both your GP and a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professionals from the specialist clinic you are attending.
