Back in October 2009 I sustained a neck injury.
I went to see David about 3 months after hurting myself. Having already had a variety of treatments including physiotherapy, myofacsial release, ultrasound and acupuncture - all with little sustained benefit.
With David, I received deep tissue work, acupuncture and some manipulation. The improvement was slow, but started with the first treatment. I think it’s important to be patient in these situations. Longstanding things can take time.

I went to David firstly with a damaged shoulder. I was hardly able to move my arm more than 30 degrees in any direction. I had been to doctors then for X-rays and was told there was little that could be done to improve things except for getting "gold injections...steroid injections" every few months to help with the pain. Not something I was keen on. They called it tendonitis. David manipulated my shoulder for a number of sessions then did a few sessions of acupuncture work. The result after a few short months was that I now have complete mobility with no pain and no drugs..10 years later and still no problem. I have every confidence in David's ability and would be delighted to recommend him.

I have used David off and on for six years , Having suffered from severe back pain I was unable to participate in either Hill walking or running , over a period of months from meeting David I was able to climb Kilimanjaro , and run ( slowly) the New York marathon .
I have recommended David to several of my friends down the years , whilst , a bit of a grumpy bugger , everybody was extremely pleased with both Davids diagnosis and work that he was able to do for them , without getting tied into a dozen sessions .
I haven't been to David for a while but would have no hesitation in going back or recommending him to anybody.

I highly recommend David Drysdale without any hesitation. To make my statement short and sweet, I would say ‘he has magic hands’. I felt better right after the first treatment.
David is reliable, thorough, attentive and - clearly- an exceptionally knowledgeable osteopath.
He works intuitively, with real sensitivity and is able to advise on many different aspects of lifestyle which might affect bodily health.
He helped me solve my back problems really effectively and compassionately. After repeat visits and the really quite incredible results, I trust him implicitly - and would recommend him to absolutely anyone.
David is very professional, helpful and understanding with my back problems. I would totally recommend a visit. As he has helped me a lot.
Honestly recommend David Drysdale Osteopath absolutely brilliant, been to the doctors had all the pain killer's for my back and nothing worked, decided to give this a try and wouldn't go anyway else now totally pain free, could stand up straight again and finally get some rest, he is a very caring and professional guy please please give it a try you will never go anyway else after going here.
Wholeheartedly recommend David. I had immediate beneficial effects from acupuncture (I came out walking straight for the first time in months). He's also very prudent and careful not to over-promise.
