David Makinson – Physiotherapist
David has been working as a physio for over 10 years and takes great joy in helping patients alleviate their longstanding pain. He uses his wealth of knowledge to be able to assist patients with any musculoskeletal conditions but particularly enjoys treating those who have low back pain or have had pain for a long time and not necessarily had the recovery they were hoping for prior to coming to Physio.
After studying his Physiotherapy degree at Keele University in 2007, David went on to finish a Masters degree at Salford University in 2013. Throughout his career he has worked extensively through the UK, NZ and now Australia. David enjoys seeing his clients return to full level of function, whether it be sport, recreation or work. He achieves these goals through a mix of manual therapy and rehabilitative exercises and utilising his experience in dry needling, kinesiotaping and Pilates.
With a keen interest in all things soccer, David still manages to play once a week with the Move Forward indoor soccer team as well as spending time with his wife and little boy.
