Ross was born and grew up in Oxford to an English mother and Ghanaian father. He started his Osteopathic journey in 1998 at the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy (now known as the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM)). In 2002 he graduated with an honours degree in Osteopathic medicine and a diploma in Naturopathic medicine.
On graduating he moved to the south west of England where he worked in a number of multidisciplinary clinics in Taunton, Wotton Bassett, Bristol, and Yeovil although he is probably best known locally for the 18 years he has worked in Chard.
Ross’s treatment approach is structurally based, with soft tissue and massage techniques being used alongside mobilisation and joint manipulation. Ross works with the patient to help them understand their condition and empower them to take an active role in their recovery through the use of exercise rehabilitation, and strength and conditioning. Ross also incorporates other treatment modalities into his approach with the use of Acupuncture/dry needling and therapeutic ultrasound.
Ross is a keen sportsman having played and competed in a variety of sports at a high level. At the tender age of forty….something, he can still be seen running around a rugby pitch with Chard RFC and instructing mixed martial arts classes to adults. Another deep passion for Ross is fishing, he is often found somewhere on a river or lake bank telling tales of ‘the one that got away’. If you start a conversation with Ross about fishing, please be prepared for a very long chat!!!
Ross lives locally with his wife and three children and is committed to helping the community around him in the town that he loves. A fun fact that many do not know about Ross is that his sister is a well known TV actor, often appearing on shows such as BBC’s Holby City, Death in Paradise, Midsummer murders and the future hit series Epic.
