David's focus has always been on providing the best possible care and experience for his patients, and as Trident has grown he has enjoyed working and expanded the business with like minded practitioners who share the same values that Trident was initially built on.
These values are to apply a unique and tailored approach to musculoskeletal care whilst providing education, hands on 1:1 sessions, coupled with exercise to alleviate pain and improve performance.
David has a keen interest in working with athletes or anyone looking to get that little extra out of their body.
His focus is movement based management of musculoskeletal problems with an emphasis on assessing the QUALITY of movement within a skill. Whether that be a squat in a gym, running through the park or picking up your child. Each of these movements can be assessed into fundamental parts and rebuilt to create more robust humans performing at their optimal capacity.
“Ultimately my goal is to prevent pain and injuries from occurring in the first place by training strong balanced biomechanical control and instilling appropriate pain knowledge. I enjoy educating my patients about how to understand and manage their own pain allowing them to be able to get on with the better parts of life!”
