Learn More About David
David’s formal education started at the Queensland University of Technology studying Clinical Exercise Physiology. However his focus shifted to Physiotherapy which he pursued with Griffith University at the world class Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct.
There David graduated with his Bachelor of Exercise Science and Master of Physiotherapy, as well as being granted the Griffith Award for Academic Excellence.
Since then, David has worked with diverse patients in the musculoskeletal field. During his career, he has completed several courses in areas of interest, including lower limb tendinopathy, tennis elbow and headaches or migraines.
David believes good health and a working body, is at the heart of a happy fulfilled life. David seeks not only to improve people’s pain, but to dig deeper into root causes, in order to optimise body function.
David is a firm believer in giving each patient a comprehensive assessment, just like a major car service, in order to treat all necessary issues.
David loves educating patients about how their body works and always giving hands on therapy for patients to walk out feeling better than when they arrived.
Quality of Care
David takes pride in connecting with all patients and improving the most stubborn conditions. His training has brought a wealth of experience working in public and private hospitals as well as leading musculoskeletal clinics. This experience equips David with the knowledge and skills to practice at the highest standard.
