David Hohenschurz-Schmidt

Registered Osteopath

A PhD pain researcher at Imperial College and award-winning osteopath, David’s patients receive professional and personalised care. His motto is to help people to help themselves, focusing on rapid pain relief and long-term recovery strategies. This will include a comprehensive health assessment, acknowledging physical and other contributors to the patient’s situation, as well as skilled manual therapy, ranging from gentle to more direct techniques and including medical acupuncture where appropriate. Recovery strategies are then developed with the patient and to each person’s abilities and preferences, empowering patients to regain control of their health. 


David’s motivation is that he fully enjoys getting to know people from all walks of life. He has developed expertise in working with office professionals, athletes, children, and with people severely affected by long-term pain. His PhD research focuses on improving non-drug treatments for pain and he can communicate scientific evidence clearly to patients. David holds two Master’s degrees, one in Osteopathy from the University College of Osteopathy and another in Neuroscience from King’s College London, both of which he completed with distinction. Further, David is strongly involved in osteopathic teaching and received the 2020 Community of Practice Award by the UK Institute of Osteopathy. In his personal life, David enjoys being a dad as well as books and exercise.
