Meet David

PHYSIOTHERAPIST & OSTEOPATH

Dr David Aboud (Osteopath) completed both his Bachelor and Masters degree in Osteopathy at RMIT University, Victoria. After graduating, he spent the first four years of his career working in Melbourne alongside some of the most prominent practitioners within the Osteopathic profession. This helped establish him as an adept clinician amongst his peers with an enthusiastic thirst for knowledge. These early years helped shape his desire to continue learning and become a leader within the Osteopathic profession.

David’s passion for clinical excellence led him to accept a postgraduate position in the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at Macquarie University, Sydney in 2014. While living in Sydney, David worked as a senior Osteopath in one of Sydney’s largest multidisciplinary centres. During this time, he developed an internship program for graduate Osteopaths in Sydney with a key focus on clinical excellence, evidence based practice and objective outcomes. He also worked closely with the directors on systematising procedures and creating a culture combining a strong work ethic with elite service delivery.

David presents a unique skill set as a practitioner that combines the vast array of Osteopathic techniques with the evidence based approach of Physiotherapy. He is able to draw upon objective assessment and outcome measures, while applying techniques and rehab protocols with proven therapeutic benefits. By educating his clients, David helps them understand the cause of their problem, the likely course of the condition and their options for managing and resolving the complaint.

As part of his Physiotherapy doctorate, David is currently involved in a large scale systematic review (the gold standard of research trials) that will determine whether MRI findings are a useful predictive tool for future neck pain. He is fortunate to be supervised by one of the world’s leading back pain researchers and works alongside other experts in the field of back and neck pain. David’s hope is to have the paper published in a high quality journal in late 2017.

With his experience in research and a keen interest in sports injuries, back and neck pain, David has quickly established himself as a leader in his field.

David is a registered practitioner with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), Australian Osteopathic Association (AOA), Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) and Sports Medicine Australia (SMA).
