Doctor of Chiropractic
Dave is originally from County Durham and first encountered Chiropractic after suffering a neck injury playing Rugby, this prevented him from working for several weeks, but traditional methods did not help with the pain. He found a local chiropractor who helped him to reduce the symptoms, this proved to be a pivotal point in his life, and he made the decision to switch from a career as an Automotive Design Engineer and train to become a Chiropractor.
He achieved his Masters Degree in Chiropractic in 2012 and has since worked in clinics in North London and St Albans, before joining with his wife to work in Wellbeing Chiropractic, which has now become Wellbeing Chiropractic Health Centre.
Dave is a very active person who enjoys many different sports and has trained in Martial Arts from a young age, competing successfully in many regional and national tournaments; he also enjoys Rugby and has completed in several Olympic Distance Triathlons.
Dave is passionate about all aspects of Chiropractic; he takes pride in offering the very best care and advice for his patients of all ages. He encourages individuals to take an active role in their own health and wellbeing. Dave has a good knowledge of exercise as a way of improving strength, posture and also helping with recovery from injury.
