DR. David Sinclair

Principal Osteopath & Coach

David was originally born in Cape Town, South Africa, and immigrated to Australia in 2002. He has always been involved in competitive sports since the age of four, including judo and rugby, but most significantly soccer, which he ended up playing at the state level.

His career in health and fitness began after high school while in the Army, certifying as a Combat Fitness Leader and taking soldiers through battle training, obstacle courses, and high-intensity anaerobic training. He then completed his Certificate 3/4 in Fitness in 2016, enabling him to work in the fitness industry helping others achieve strength, fitness, and body composition goals.

After spending a few years in the industry, he certified in massage therapy and created his own business specializing in deep tissue and sports massage, as well as exercise programming and guidance. He also completed his ASCA Strength & Conditioning Certification and worked with a local rugby league team for three years. Later, he started and completed a Bachelor in Osteopathic Sciences - Osteopathy, and then finishing a Masters in Osteopathic Medicine.

David's approach to assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation is uniquely shaped through his formal qualifications, but also largely from extracurricular courses, where he has invested a significant amount of money and time upskilling. Additionally, his experience in both fitness and a clinical setting has enabled him to provide a highly individualized and effective patient care.

The client base that David supports consists of a variety of sporting disciplines, including barbell and strength athletes, contact sports, martial artists, and runners. Davids's ultimate passion lies in helping others achieve their results whether that be getting out of pain, moving and feeling better, or improving their performance in their training or chosen sport

Dry Needling

Dry Needling is a technique used to treat musculoskeletal pain or dysfunction. It involves inserting fine acupuncture needles into muscles, specifically trigger points or "knots". This has a relaxing effect on the muscle and reduces associated pain. Although this method can be seen as quite invasive, it is actually relatively painless and provides quick and effective results.

Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial cupping is a therapy used as a tool in a holistic treatment approach. It involves placing cups on certain areas of the body and the putting suction in them. There are different ways they can be employed such as statically, functionally or actively, depending on the clients specific needs. They work to provide increased blood flow, improve joint range of motion, reduce muscular pain and decrease overall stress of the mind and body.

Shockwave Therapy

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is a powerful and non-invasive tool that allows for the solution to many tendon & ligament issues, as well as chronic musculoskeletal pain. It works by sending low-energy shockwaves into tissue which has an analgesic effect and improvement in blood flow which allows tissue regeneration and healing. It has an outstanding evidence base and can assist in delivering fast and effective results.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a form of deep tissue massage which involves the practitioner applying pressure to trigger points or knots of a muscle which facilitates a release and subsequent increase in the muscle range of motion, as well as reduction in associated pain. This is a well known and effective treatment technique which can be used in combination with other therapies as part of a treatment.

Exercise Rehabilitation

Exercise rehabilitation is the use of specific movements or exercises to help facilitate long term positive change of a previously identified injury, pain or movement dysfunction. It is the final piece of the puzzle in regards to successful manual therapy and some would argue the most important part. It involves prescription and planning, as well as specific guidance in relation to the desired execution of the exercise.
