Informed consent

As a patient, I voluntarily present myself to the practice Centro Holistico Bunyola by Philip Thomsen Letrop in order to be treated according to his knowledge, techniques, means and experience.

Information for patients:

• The osteopath personally informs the patient about the treatment phases: the anamnesis, the examination protocol and the treatment.

• The anamnesis consists of three parts:

- Questions on the occasion of the consultation.

- Questions about general health.

- Medical history questions, personal and/or relatives.

• The investigation protocol is based on:

- Visual and/or palpatory analysis of the posture and mobility of the

different body structures.

- Manual evaluation maneuvers involving no or very little risk

represent for the patient.

- If necessary and with the prior consent of the patient,

we take digital pictures (video, photography) for the post-processing of the case.

- Additional tests may be required:

Diagnostic imaging and/or tissue analysis (blood, urine, etc.). These tests must be prescribed by the competent doctor in order to rule out any type of contraindications to the treatment.

• The treatment techniques used depend on the reason for the consultation and can be aimed at different parts of the body in addition to the symptomatic area. These techniques are generally manual techniques and include but are not limited to:

- Stretching, active or passive mobilizations and rapid joint mobilizations over short distances. The latter can cause joint cavitation (small sound effects that are not usually painful).

- Visceral mobilization techniques.

- Fascial techniques (usually with very gentle pressure).

- Techniques in the cranial area (usually with very gentle pressure).

- The treatment can also include basic advice on your person:

Eating habits, the physical activity you exercise or should exercise, or your lifestyle.

- If it is absolutely necessary; After the reason for access has been properly explained to the patient and permission has been obtained, oral treatment techniques can be applied. 

• Occasionally, minimal side effects may occur after using the treatment. This can include:

- Slight increase in pain or symptoms during the first 72 hours. If the pain persists after this time, do not hesitate to contact us.

- General tiredness.

- Occurrence of new symptoms at other body parts than from the reason for treatment.

- Headache

 

• During the visit you will be given the opportunity to clarify your doubts and questions. If you feel it is necessary, you can stop the treatment at any time.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

-Signing the document means that you have read the above aspects and that you understand the nature and purpose of the required osteopathic treatment. Also, that you understand the possible risks and complications and that there are no absolute guarantees that the outcome of the treatment will be the most satisfactory.
