It can be a difficult experience when a return patient tells you that they're a lot worse after your treatment. But it's essential to be able to handle these situations because every practitioner will experience this.

In fact it doesn't matter what type of practitioner you are - whether you are an Osteopath, Physiotherapist, Chiropractor or Massage therapist - treat robustly or very gently with Cranial Osteopathy or craniosacral therapy - all of us will experience this situation with our patients.

And it's the same if you are an Osteopath that treat babies, in fact often that can be even harder because if a baby is worse after treatment then parents can get very more upset about that.
