David was drawn to the field of Podiatry after suffering Shin Splints for many years as an accomplished athletics star and state level Rugby champion. The discovery of a knowledgeable Sports Podiatrist who was able to assist him with his shin pain, led him to developing a keen interest in biomechanics and musculoskeletal issues and assisting others with their foot and leg pain or injuries.
First-hand experience dealing with his shin pain has provided David with an understanding and empathy for his patients and a desire to assist them so they can keep pain-free and active to pursue their passions in life.
