About Daniel Gerber
Hello my name’s Daniel Gerber. Although currently treating as a manipulative therapist my initial training was as an osteopath.
I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1998. After qualifying I worked as an osteopath in London and Leeds to gain more experience at a number of clinics before moving to Glasgow, Scotland. I am in the process of taking myself off the osteopathic register meaning I can no longer call myself an osteopath.
I’ve recently found myself moving away from osteopathy, and bringing more movement, with exercise and rehabilitation that is appropriate to you in to treatment. Treatments involve using the best that osteopathy has to give with the addition of some of the best that physiotherapy, and other approaches to health have to offer. Giving you one of the best approaches to getting you pain free, moving well and back to your bestI take a huge amount of satisfaction from the work I do and enjoy treating a wide range of people. Over the years I have successfully treated people of all ages – from weeks old, to patients in their 90’s. These have been people of all activity levels from people in wheel chairs to professional athletes.
It has always been my aim to treat patients using the lowest number of treatments possible. My job is to listen to you and assess your health-care needs accurately. With your input I’ll then formulate a plan of action to help you achieve your health goals, whatever they may be.
By working together, we can ensure the treatments are as effective as possible and that’s the reason why so many of my patients are happy to recommend me to their family and friends.
I always minimize the use of Osteopathic “clicking” techniques. In fact, in most cases I find they’re not needed at all, and by using gentle joint movements and a series of soft-tissue techniques to work through the muscles. Rehabilitation and strengthening exercises that fit in with your life are often given to help further condition you. Using these methods I find I can help to return people to a full active life. I have found these methods be as successful on older patients as they are with the athletes I treat.
I am the only trained practitioner of the Perrin Technique for ME/CFS in Glasgow and am probably one of the most experienced practitioners in the whole of Scotland. The Perrin technique is used to treat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME by draining toxins from the central nervous system and helping you return to a “normal” life.
