Hi, I’m Dave,
I am an experienced physiotherapist who enjoys developing strong therapeutic relationships. I have a wide range of experience with different problems, but I have a particular interest in exercise rehabilitation of the knee (osteoarthritis, patellofemoral pain, ACL injury rehab, running injuries). I am a keen runner myself and enjoy hitting the pavement around where I live in Geelong, and along the trails around the surf coast.
My interest in knees has guided me into a Masters by Research at La Trobe, which I am in the home stretch of completing. My research has explored the efficacy of treatment of patellofemoral osteoarthritis (PFOA), and how people with PFOA make decisions about their treatment. I am also a tutor for GLA:D Australia, which sees me teaching on courses through La Trobe University and delivering regular education sessions.
