David graduated from Robert Gordons University in 2013. Initially, he worked down in Tayside combining work in the NHS with work for Dundee United F.C. Youth Academy. He gained valuable sporting experience at the football club, and learned his trade in a wide range of rotational posts in the NHS. He joined SPEAR in 2016 and is an intergral part of our musculoskeletal team.

Since moving to Aberdeen he has been actively involved with the Aberdeen F.C Youth Academy, and has been providing pitch side cover for Elgin Football Club. In August 2016, David gained valuable insight into working with elite athletes when he travelled to Sweden to work alongside the Great Britain Orienteering team at the World Orienteering Championships.

Since joining SPEAR, David’s love of all things golf has been married with his love of Physiotherapy, and he works alongside Karen to deliver golf specific physiotherapy and Profiling. Being a keen golfer himslef and playing off 2 (correct at time of print!!!), he fully understands the wants and needs of a golfer.

David is based at The Paul Lawrie Golf Centre 3 days a week, and runs a golf specific fitness class in the winter to help golfers in the North East prepare for the season. David was also selected to provide Physiotherapy cover at The Amateur Championship at Murcar in June 2018.
