Name: Michael Occupation: Computer Operator “I have been treated by David intermittently for 6 years now, initially with severe problems with my neck, right shoulder and arm, which David quickly diagnosed as damaged discs in my neck (later confirmed by an MRI scan).
My pain and lack of movement was much improved over the course of his treatment, and has now disappeared for the most part. I still have a quarterly check-up session with David in which he will free up any tightened muscles and deal with any other aches and pains I have before they develop into more serious problems.
David has a friendly, relaxed approach which puts patients at their ease. He explains what the problem is in simple terms, how he is going to deal with it and will give advice on exercises and posture to help alleviate or avoid the problem in the future. In my opinion David has a remarkable expertise in his field and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to others.”
Name: Caroline Occupation: Education Advisor “I can't thank you enough for what you have done for my back. I was in agony with compressed discs and arthritis in my lower spine, unable to bend without pain or run around with my children. The NHS could not help me and simply wanted to prescribe long term painkillers. I have really appreciated your holistic approach, giving me a plan of treatment and advice about diet and posture. After a few appointments with you, and following the exercises you prescribed, I have my life back!”
Name: Richard Occupation: Manager “I came to see David after my GP had diagnosed me with a sciatic nerve problem in my lower back causing pains in my legs. I had been prescribed pain killers to deal with it.
My decision to visit an osteopath was made on the recommendation by a personal friend who is training to be a qualified osteopath. David assessed my condition and started treatments on a weekly basis. He was very reassuring that my condition could be rectified with both his efforts to treat me as well as my own efforts in carrying out the suggested exercises in my time. At a time when I was starting to get frustrated with a lack of improvement, David was great at keeping me motivated to stick with things and to keep going. I did as he suggested and my whole situation started to improve and my pains were getting less and less and I at last started to feel so much better. The whole rehabilitation took 4 months.
Without David’s knowledge, motivation, and superb bedside manner I doubt I would have had the same success and I can’t thank him enough for what he did for me in rectifying what had become a painful and debilitating condition.
I would have no hesitation in recommending David to anyone who is suffering from the same condition, as he is very good at what he does for you.”
Name: Lucy Occupation: Photographer " David is a great Osteopath - not only does he tackle the immediate problem in hand, he also considers and works with the whole person. He actively listens and works closely with you to make sure things work for you. I have recommended him to close friends and family members and would do so again without hesitation."
Name: Mike Occupation: Retired Pilot " Visited David following back pain and stiffness first thing in the morning. After one treatment I noticed an immediate 100% improvement. He also gave me some exercises I can use before getting out of bed in the morning, to help my flexibility. The big difference, compared to visiting a GP, is that David was unrushed and has a calming manner with plenty of time to discuss my general health. I would have no hesitation in recommending David."
Name: David Occupation: Occupational Health
"I had suffered with chronic lower back stiffness and a nagging pain for many years before eventually deciding to seek some help, as it seemed to be getting worse! I went to see David on the basis that his practice was near my home, and was so very glad i did. I found him to be understanding, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and above all very professional.
At my first visit David examined me before fully explaining the reason for my discomfort and how an Osteopathic intervention and some straight forward exercises could help. I had a series of weekly appointments for about a month, in which time the stiffness and pain had lifted completely. Fantastic!
I would have no reservations and would be very pleased to highly recommend David Seed to friends, family, or anyone seeking out the advice and treatment of an Osteopath."
