Meet the Osteopaths. Ross

Ross Gemmell MOst

Ross graduated in 2015 from Leeds Beckett University. On graduation, he was awarded the Deans Prize for Osteopathic Excellence.

Ross first discovered Osteopathy at 16 years of age as a result of an an incident whilst playing football, which left him suffering from low back pain & sciatica. Over the course of 8 months he sought advice from various health care professionals with no improvement, before finally visiting his local Osteopath in Selby where he finally got some pain relief along with a diagnosis for his condition. Ross was extremely impressed at his Osteopath's understanding of the body and how he was able to relieve him of his pain just through hands-on manipulation. So much so, that on Ross' first session with his Osteopath he began questioning what you need to do in order to become an Osteopath, and with a little guidance from him Ross went on to apply for his Osteopathy degree at 18 and has never looked back since.

In order to continue his professional development, he has completed further training in Kinesio-Taping, Dry Needling and Cranial Osteopathy. He has a keen interest in Osteopathic sports care and rehabilitation but likes to treat a wide range of conditions and injuries seeing patients of all ages. He spent two seasons as head of the medical team at a semi-professional football team in West Yorkshire, but left to focus more on his private practice work.

Ross joined the team at Northallerton Osteopaths in 2015 and in 2019 he became a partner with Joanna at the clinic. 2022 saw him become a partner at Easingwold Osteopaths where he now works between the two clinics.

Appointments available Thursdays at Easingwold & Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at Northallerton
