Chartered Physiotherapist, MCSP, MHPC
“Training the elite population is an absolute privilege as both a trainer and a physiotherapist. To witness elite athletes take a backward step from injury and then have them rise up over adversity to dominate at the top of their sport once again really is fulfilling”
David is a unique specialist in the fact he works both as a strength and conditioner and a physiotherapist. He has had over 8 years within the sporting industry and initially graduated from the University of Wollongong with an undergraduate Bachelor’s degree in Sport and Exercise and Science. David has worked both with individuals and elite sporting teams within the industry including basketball, hockey, cricket, track and field, rugby, football, gymnastics and surfing.
After training many elite individuals at this level, injury can occur as a result of high training loads and David decided to further his knowledge in this area. He went on to study his postgraduate qualification completing his Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney in 2007. His physiotherapy experience stems from rehabilitation with the general population and with National level athletes of which he finds his greatest passion.

He also finds enjoyment from rehabilitating individuals ranging from Olympic level athletes to your average office worker as everyone has a special story to tell. Therefore, it doesn’t matter if the patient is working full time or training full time, their schedule is fundamentally based on their lifestyle and aimed at seeing them return to their true passion.
Sport has always been a part of my life and I love seeking new adventures from any walk in life. Whether that be surfing the ideal wave or lifting my personal best weight in the gym, I pride myself on getting results through hard work and discipline. I have found that disciplining yourself through consistent goal setting every day, helps drive one’s journey of successfully attaining what it is you want out of life”
