    I have found David to be exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful, He has been able to help me where others were unsuccessful, providing me with exercises I can manage and that help whereas before the exercises I was given from elsewhere didnt seem to help! I find his manner to be calming and encouraging, and progress has most definitely been made!

    I am so grateful to David for his extraordinary care in an extraordinary situation. My treatment with David has been exceptional. He really knows his craft, and is a reassuring, measured practitioner. With acute and worsening pain, I could barely move and I needed treatment urgently. However, due to COVID-19, London had entered lockdown in earnest and clinics were closing their doors. Worried, I began to accept I would have to recover without treatment, which would likely take much longer and involve a great deal of pain. To my great relief, I discovered that David was offering some limited emergency appointments for urgent cases. We spoke, and he explained he working with proper measures in place (including but not limited to sterilising all equipment and spaces, booking emergency patients in non-consecutively as well as using PPE kit). The treatment itself was remarkable. After just my initial treatment, my movement, flexibility and pain were immediately and significantly improved. His follow-up care and advice have been fantastic, and I am returning to normal quickly. I don't know how I can fully express my gratitude to David for being there when I really needed his expertise. I am grateful too for the special care and consideration he has given the needs of this very unusual time.

    I was very impressed with David's very calming manner which got me to relax immediately, and his treatment was excellent! During the treatment he asked me to let him know if any of it was too painful, he also asked me not to take any painkillers before the treatment as he wanted to be certain not to over or under treat me.. As I said above was extremely impressed with his treatment of me and am continuing to see him, current situation permitting! PS. I would appreciate it if my name did not go public after approval of the moderator, thank you

    Back Pain
    Consulted David a year ago for tennis elbow and have been getting treatment since, for a variety of ailments - pain in the knee, foot, back and shoulders. David's effective treatment often results in very few visits to his clinic, and at times only the initial visit was necessary. His excellent management of my ailments and great bedside manner meant that I am not overly worried - he explains everything in detail - and the advice he gave help me manage the problems at home. Unlike many other such practitioners I had in the past, David treats the problem as required and does not prolong return visits to boost business. He not only treated my osteopathy problems, but used his questions about my overall health to advice how I could improve my overall wellbeing. Thanks to David, his suggestion that I consult a nutritionist, deep tissue massage therapist and a podiatrist has improved my health significantly. I would recommend David Propert to anyone who needs the care of a professional osteopath.

    Collaborating with David to manage my patients holistically has meant that my patients receive a full comprehensive assessment and management plan that offers long term solutions to both chronic and acute complications. Its a pleasure always to receive positive feed back from my patients after their visit to David.
