About Jonathan Boxall
Jonathan is the Principal practitioner of the Cullompton Osteopathic Clinic and Director of Osteo and Physio Ltd. He is also a partner, and the director of practice development, at the Natural Health Practice in Cullompton.
He started the clinics in 2009 having moved to Devon from Kent. The clinics have been very successful, and have now expanded to include additional Osteopaths Tatiana Johnson, physiotherapist Sarah Marek and Bowen practitioner Jane Flaxington, broadening the range of skills and techniques on offer. Alongside being a dedicated Osteopath, he is passionate about raising the profile of Osteopathy in Devon, helping to increase public appreciation it's many benefits.
Jonathan was born and brought up in Exeter and attended Exeter School and Exeter College. He left at the age of 21 to pursue a career in Information Technology. Having enjoyed this for over ten years he began to feel an increasing sense that there was something else that he needed to do in order to help people in a more direct way. Having helped nurse his father through six months of profound back problems while still at school, Jonathan slowly recognised Osteopathy was his true calling. He is now a well established and contented practitioner.
Jonathan's style as an Osteopath is thoughtful and considered. He makes good use of the clinical knowledge acquired during his four year bachelors degree, and places great emphasis on understanding patient's problems. It is with the knowledge gained of underlying causes that he can get to, and treat the root of the problem.
With a friendly and attentive manor he is particular about asking the right questions. Once the problem is fully understood from the patients point of view, he is careful in doing the appropriate clinical testing so that the correct diagnosis is reached. He is very focussed on solving the issue and will always advise the best course of action, even if it is not osteopathy.
His skills as a clinician include:
- Medical acupuncture
- Visceral osteopathy
- Osteopathy for babies and children
- Osteopathic manipulation applied as gently as possible, but with sufficient force to do the job.
- Cranial Osteopathy
In treatment he will often employ a combination of techniques in order to maximise the therapeutic effect. Common combinations will include acupuncture, cranial osteopathy and osteopathic adjustments when treating a condition like neck pain with associated headaches. He also often brings in acupuncture and visceral osteopathy when doing more conventional treatments to resolve lower back pain. He will always consider the patients needs and preferences in treatment.
