Eliminating Chronic Pain
Getting back to healthy
I believe that chronic pain can be solved. It's a complex field, it isn't always easy, but positive solutions do exist. Complete relief for those without permanent structural damage, & better ways to manage structural changes are definitely possible.
Imagine seeing a clinician with OVER 25yrs OF CLINICAL EXPERIENCE, a double masters degree in both Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapy, a 2yr post-grad course in USA on chronic pain management, who speaks at conferences & is referred to by other Physiotherapists and medical specialists. Physiotherapist David Wadsworth believes in excellence in clinical care & loves helping others achieve optimal health.
Taking Care of You
True excellence is rare. David has spent a career striving for it & has collected a couple of uni medals along the way. But he believes that it is the advanced post-grad short courses that truly make a difference, leading to a higher level of skill development than that which he achieved at university.
How do you create a lasting solution to chronic pain?
1. Constant refinement and improvement of clinical skills: Knowledge never stops or stagnates, it grows and expands.
2. Conquering symptoms requires diagnosis, explanation & understanding of the various factors causing your pain.
3. A fundamental principle is that the location of your pain is not always the cause, & that all systems of the body may interact to create a problem. It's not just muscles & joints that cause pain.
4. Persistent pain often involves more than 1 system. Any system of the body may contribute, & they can all be treated - just not with standard / traditional models of care. This includes arterial supply, lymphatic-venous drainage, neural supply & control, the organs (visceral system) & any musculoskeletal structure.
Sports & Acute Pain
Improving performance, avoiding time loss from sports / activities that matter to you
Overcoming injuries whilst maintaining as much fitness as possible is key for athletes. David has extensive experience in managing the injuries runners, swimmers & cyclists experience. He can help recreational & high performance athletes with their specific problems in the context of their training & competition goals.
