South Downs Osteopathy is a caring, friendly osteopathic practice run by Ross Skilton within the db Foot Clinic.


Ross can help with more than just back pain - he treats people of all ages with a variety of muscle, joint, ligament, tendon, nerve and bone-related pains from head to toe.


Osteopaths’ patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people.  Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, repetitive strain injury, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.


Osteopathy differs from other types of manual therapy in that it takes into account the patient’s environment, emotional state and thought processes as well as their physical state when diagnosing and managing their condition. It recognises that no two people are the same, so treatment is tailored to the individual. Ross uses a variety of techniques to relieve pain and improve how the body is functioning. These can include massage and stretching techniques to relax tight muscles and techniques to improve joint movement, such as joint articulation and manipulation (that well-known clicking often associated with osteopathy), to name just a few.


Ross is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy. He has a Masters degree in Osteopathy from the British School of Osteopathy (2011) and a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology with Pharmacology from the University of Southampton (1999).
