David hails from sunny Perth in Western Australia where he completed his Physiotherapy degree at Curtin University in 2001 before working in a busy private practice. In 2004 he met Rachel when they studied for their Master of Manual Therapy degree at the University of Western Australia. He followed her back to Northern Ireland and they founded Active Health in 2006, opening their first clinic in Holywood in 2007.
David has developed an excellent reputation in the treatment of Headaches and Spinal Pain working closely with Consultants to treat those patients that have been unable to find relief with other treatments. He has trained internationally in the treatment of Headaches and is the only Level 3 Watson Headache® Certified Practitioner in the UK and Ireland. David and Rachel now have 3 boys that keep him busy at home and when he gets the chance he likes to hit the golf course.
