Can a person who has had back surgery see an Osteopath?

Can a person who has had back surgery see an Osteopath? Osteopathy is beneficial for post-surgical rehabilitative care as it offers gentle, non-invasive treatment which promotes the natural healing processes of the body. In addition to this some people who have had spinal surgery experience a return of their original or similar symptoms months or years later. Osteopathy may help prevent repeated back surgery; in fact, if Osteopathic treatment is initially utilised back surgery can often be avoided in the first place. Prevention is better than cure.
