PATIENT'S EXPERIENCE OF TREATMENT WITH DAVID
'Dr Referred me to David'Open or Close
After acute pain in my chest my doctor said she thought it was my back and referred me to David.
Having never been to an osteopath, I was apprehensive but shouldn't have been. David took time and care to discuss my problem and then carried out considered, painless treatment explaining it along the way –recommending key things to change in life as well.
Two sessions have seen me greatly improved and nearly back to normal. Thank you very much.
'Rib & Lower Back Pain'Open or Close
Last Wednesday evening, I started experiencing discomfort in my ribs and lower back.
I called David and explained that even deep breathing was causing me pain. Fortunately he managed to squeeze me in an appointment that afternoon.
The treatment was incredible - in less 30 minutes I was able to move normally again. David also, gave me some simple tips on keeping good posture.
Thank you David - I seriously thought I was going to be laid up for days!
'Cranial treatment aged 5'Open or Close
We decided to see if there was anything that David could identify and treat.
He immediately put Charlie at ease and treated him almost without realising he was.
We noticed a change after one session and will be keeping this as part of his maintenance programme.
Thank you very much.
'Committed to his Patients'Open or Close
I have known David for many years and I have been impressed by his desire to learn new techniques, via professional exams and the review of research papers.
My frustration with other practitioners is they often have back to back appointments and clock watch.
This is not David's approach - he is committed to his patients and his goal is to address issues as quickly as possible.
I continue to be treated by David and would recommend him for any treatment, relating to muscular/skeletal issues.
You will not be disappointed.
'Migraine Prevention'Open or Close
I had been suffering from migraine for much of my life and getting frequent attacks paralysing me down one side of the body.
The conventional method was to rely on beta blockers which I decided against.
A friend of mine recommended I saw David.
This I did 2 years ago and my migraines are now under control.
David comes highly recommended his professional, gentle, caring approach comes natural, a talented Osteopath.
'Lower back with shoulder/neck pain'Open or Close
For most of my adult life I have suffered with lower back and shoulder and neck pain and have consulted various practitioners in a variety of disciplines, none of whom provided permanent benefit.
Finally, I was introduced to David Gray who set about relieving my painful symptoms, and perhaps more importantly, seeking out the causes, that became the subject of further treatment. This was complimented with an exercise regime suggested by David.
The outcome has been very successful, keeping me virtually pain free for the past few years.
In addition the skill he brilliantly brings to bear with his hands David is an excellent communicator explaining at each stage, exactly what he is doing and what he expects to achieve.
This aspect I have found fascinating and extremely reassuring.
Thanks to David I have been able to continue my hobbies of golf and gardening.
Additionally I have been spared surgery on a damaged shoulder which had been the subject of investigation by a Consultant surgeon in May 2004.

'I recommend his way of working'Open or Close
I have seen David regularly over several years now for help with a 'bad back' - a recurrent problem from a slipped disc many years ago.
His careful attention to the exact symptoms and his encouragement to use helpful exercises between appointments have contributed to an overall sense of well being and decrease in back pain.
I can recommend his holistic approach and way of working without hesitation.

I really enjoyed my treatment with David, and he had a very good understanding of what was going on for me emotionally. And I felt great afterwards!
As a counselor myself, I like to know of someone like David who I can recommend to my clients for cranial work, and do so with complete confidence.

I have seen various therapists about my ongoing shoulder problems for a number of years but the pain always returns after a few days.
I consulted David and with his knowledge and professionalism my shoulder pain stopped after 5 sessions.

Babies inability to RelaxOpen or Close
Thanks for seeing my daughter Ellie on Friday afternoon.
I felt very positive after the session, and have been using lots of the techniques you showed me with her.
She has seemed much more settled in the afternoons, and when she has been unsettled, she has calmed down much quicker.
'Neck & Hip Pain'Open or Close
After going to David Gray for just a few weeks with severe neck and hip pain, there is a marked improvement in both areas.
David Gray is professional and has a pleasant and reassuring manner.
I am so very grateful to the friend who told me about him.
'Painful Injury'Open or Close
Totally recommend David, i'm in the process of getting a painful injury sorted and to be honest his services have made my life a lot easier. The fist visit to David was on the day of the injury, I came out feeling a little better but as it was on the same day I couldn't expect to be feeling that great.
My second visit really made a difference, I came out of the studio feeling 1000 times better, even though a slight pain was still present the lower part of my body felt looser and just more free if that makes sense.
I have 1 or 2 appointments left and i'm sure things will get even better.
'Put you right, Osteopath'Open or Close
You need David Gray he is an Osteopath based in Stoke Mandeville, Princes Risborough and Thame. He will put you right Xx
'Long term relief'Open or Close
A pain in the neck is not always what it seems.
David is great at finding the underlying problems and has the skills to use various treatments to alleviate the immediate situation.
In my experience the follow up visits and regular check-ups, coupled with a personalised exercise programme have provided long term relief.
I can't thank him enough and recommend him to others without reservation.
‘Constant pain can be debilitating; finding the right osteopath is difficult’Open or Close
Constant pain can be debilitating; finding the right osteopath is difficult.
Years ago, David treated me for a severe back pain which others had failed with and I thought incurable.
Since then, I have returned intermittently, usually with back-related problems and, occasionally, others.
David always sees me promptly, is quick to assess the root of the problem and has a wide range of skills to draw on.
I rarely suffer with back pain any more.
David is both professional and friendly , I have absolute trust in him, and recommend him highly to those of you in pain and wondering who to turn to.
‘there is no doubt he has benefited tremendously from coming to see you’Open or Close
Dear David I am writing to thank you for the help you provided to Tony with his headaches.
I know when I suggested your services to him that he was a little sceptical at first but he was willing to try as conventional medicine had not worked for him. In my own experience I know the benefits of osteopathy and cranial massage in particular.
As with many treatments it can take time to see improvements but there is no doubt he has benefited tremendously from coming to see you.
We are both very grateful that you were able to help him and he is now able to manage much better when he feels a headache coming on.
“Miracles do Happen”__‘Chronic Pain’Open or Close
After 2 years of constant pain in my lower back, buttocks and right leg I was refererd by my doctor to a Chiropractor.
X-rays were taken and I was told that my right hip was age damaged and was then treated for a full year on how to " manage the pain" and advised that there was "No Fix".
Just 3 weeks ago I remembered someone that had treated and fixed me of Sciatica 8 years ago. I googled hoping that this guy was still practising.
I was Very happy to find that David was still going strong and practising only 30 minutes drive from me.
I was there and warmly greeted the very next day.
Within only a few minutes David advised me that my problem was my pelvis and not my hip!
After just 1 hour and my pelvis was realigned and the pain halved.David was positive that he would be able to " Fix" me after 6 sessions.
Well if he was so sure then so was I.
Well David was wrong! He fixed me after only 4 visits and I can't thank him enough.
I am now walking and living pain free for the first time in 3 years.
I am so grateful and would recommend that he is the first port of call for anyone in chronic pain.
‘He lives over 30 miles away but she was absolutely right’Open or Close
Having tried many different practitioners my daughter recommended David to me.
It took some persuasion as he lives over 30 miles away but she was absolutely right.
After 35 years of back pain and severe sciatica I am now trouble free and just go back to him for a top up every six months or so.
Cycling back, hip and neck problemsOpen or Close
I have been seeing David on and off for around 9 years following a recommendation from a fellow cycling club member.
He has sorted out various ad hoc (eg cycling/laptop related) back, hip and neck problems during this time.
David was recommended to me - and I couldn't be more gratefulOpen or Close
I have suffered from chronic back pain for over 30 years and have seen several GPs, Osteopaths and Chiropractors. Not one of them has managed to help me. Recently, after suffering an acute episode, David was recommended to me - and I couldn't be more grateful. With what I call 'Magic Hands' and he calls 'his knowledge of anatomy' he fixed me so that the acute pain has disappeared and I feel more free in my lower back than I have for a long time. He said it would take 4-5 appointments, and that's what it took! I shall now continue to see him on a 'maintenance' basis and would always recommend him.
'he is committed to his patients and his goal is to address issues as quickly as possible'
David will explain to you what treatment you'll need, how to speed up your recovery & when you can return to your regular activities & sports.
He may prescribe special exercises together with treatment to increase your joint mobility & performance.
Together with stretching your muscle groups accordingly, strengthening weak muscles, to restore muscle balance.
