David Such graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2013 with a Master of Osteopathy with Distinction. He is the Principal Osteopath and owner of David Such Osteopathy Ltd, based at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley since 2016.
David’s passion for Osteopathy and helping people is immediately obvious on talking to him. He believes that Osteopathy is so much more than just rubbing muscles and mobilising joints – it is a safe and highly effective approach to treating patients and to help return them to their optimal function.
At David Such Osteopathy, David enjoys treating a wide variety of patients from a range of backgrounds, from early years onwards. He regularly sees patients from 6-80 years old in the same clinic session. The excellent facilities in the K2 Leisure Centre enable our Osteopaths to work on rehabilitating patients after injury or surgery. Rehabilitation is just as important as the initial treatment as it helps to prevent problems from reoccurring. David has a keen interest in sports and fitness and will help patients be able to continue their chosen sport, or simply to keep mobile.
During treatment David uses a range of approaches including: massage, joint mobilisations, specific joint manipulations, positional & myofascial release techniques, dry needling and strapping / taping to help in the recovery of sports injuries. He believes that Osteopathy is not only manual therapy, but an integrated therapy. Lifestyle changes such as nutrition, exercise and stress management are key to recovery, as well as the manual therapy part of Osteopathy.
David also works as a Practice Educator at the University College of Osteopathy in London. Practice educators work as clinic tutors to oversee students in their final years as they start to treat patients and gain at least 1000 hours of clinical experience before graduating and registering as an Osteopath.
“Working as a clinic tutor is something I’ve always wanted to do, and 10 years after leaving its great to be back at my old University. I’ve been very lucky to be inspired and mentored by an amazing Osteopath, Barrie Savory, and to do this for students over the last 3 years and help them through their final years of training is very rewarding.”
David regularly attends seminars and external courses and is pro-active in keeping up-to-date with the latest research and manual therapy guidelines. He attends and contributes to weekly tutorials for his Associate Osteopaths.
David has recently completed his Post Graduate Certificate in Academic and Clinical Education at the University College of Osteopathy, with a special award.
