Clinical Experience:

David is a passionate and highly skilled physiotherapist who also has a Masters degree in Sports and Exercise Medicine.  He has been with West London Physiotherapy for over 10 years, but his early professional journey saw him recruited to work in Singapore’s elite sports medicine centres, where he garnered valuable experience treating both professional athletes and military personnel. This experience gave him with a unique understanding of the challenges faced by individuals from diverse activity backgrounds.

David takes a holistic approach to patient care and believes that finding the root cause of a patients pain is essential to ensuring long term recovery. David has a special interest in combining manual therapy along with specific strength and conditioning to help patients overcome injuries such as recurrent back pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain. David also has a keen interest in the use of shockwave therapy for chronic tendon pain, along with identifying faulty movement patterns that may be contributing to your injury.

As someone who has navigated the complexities of major knee surgery himself, David brings more than just textbook knowledge to the table. He has a personal understanding of how challenging recovery from surgery or injury can be, and takes pride in helping patients along their road to recovery. David is also qualified to treat patients with Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).

Beyond the clinic, David likes to keep updated with everything physio related.  Whether out on a run or taking the family dog for a walk, you’ll likely find him tuned into a health or physio-related podcast.

Educational Background:

BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, Trinity College, Dublin

MSc Sports and Exercise Medicine, Queen Mary University, London

Research:

Running-related injuries and the influence of running patterns on injury susceptibility.

Q&A

When not in the clinic you'll find David wandering through the Surrey hills with his young family, trying to keep up with his kids and dog.

Why did you become a physio?

After realising I wasn't going to be a professional Gaelic footballer or replace Roy Keane and Man United, I decided the next best way to be around sport was to help those that play it recover from injury.

Fiction or non-fiction?

Non fiction. Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond is my top read, but Sapiens by Noah Yuval Harari is a close second.

You're favourite holiday destination?

A weekend away in the Cotswolds at The Double Red Duke.

What injuries have you suffered yourself?

Lots of ankle sprains through Gaelic football, but the big one was rupturing my ACL....twice. There's nothing like personal experience to develop empathy and understanding of what patients face during their recovery.
