INFORMED CONSENT TO OSTEOPATHIC CARE When performed by a qualified and Government registered Osteopath, osteopathic treatment is an effective and safe method of care for many conditions. However, you must be informed that there are risks associated with any treatment. Please read the following carefully: 1. I will have the opportunity to discuss the proposed care with my practitioner, including the nature, extent and purpose of such treatment. 2. I understand that results are not guaranteed. 3. I understand, and will have the opportunity to discuss with my practitioner, the possible risks associated with my proposed care. These include, but are not limited to, bruising or redness in the areas being treated, muscle and joint soreness, and an aggravation of symptoms. There are additional potential risks associated with manipulation (commonly known as the “cracking” technique) which range from muscle and joint sprains/strains, nausea and dizziness, fractures, disc injuries, nerve injuries and strokes (or like episodes). 4. I do not expect my practitioner to be able to anticipate all potential risks and complications associated with the proposed care. I wish to rely on the practitioner to use their judgement during the course of treatment, which they believe is in my best interests based upon the facts known at the time. Care is taken by all practitioners to ensure that a successful treatment outcome is reached whilst minimising exposure to the above risks. 5. I hereby acknowledge my consent to the performance of the proposed osteopathic care by my practitioner, and/or any other osteopath working is this clinic. 6. I have read the above, and will also have the opportunity to ask questions about its content. I intend this consent form to cover the entire course of treatment for my present condition, and for any other future condition(s) for which I seek treatment. I understand that I can withdraw my consent at any time. Practitioner Patient Name Practitioner Signature Date: Date: APPOINTMENTS MISSED OR CANCELLED WITH LESS THAN 4 HOURS NOTICE MAY BE CHARGED.
