Senior Associate Osteopath
Jonathan Gaffney is the senior Associate Osteopath at David Such Osteopathy, based at the K2 Leisure Centre in Crawley. He graduated from the European School of Osteopathy with a Master of Osteopathy and is also qualified in dry needling and sports massage.
Jonathan has a background in sports such as football, badminton, weightlifting and taekwondo. It is this background which fuelled his interest in health and fitness and ultimately a career in Osteopathy. 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.
Jonathan is a firm believer in a shared decision-making approach to treatment. This means putting the patient first and discussing the options of treatment available to you. Jonathan has a special interest in pain management and how beliefs/anxiety about your injury can amplify the pain.
At David Such Osteopathy there are weekly tutorials as well as all Osteopaths attending regular external courses. Jonathan likes to keep up-to-date with research and guidelines for Osteopathy and manual therapy. He is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council.
