A FEW WORDS ABOUT US
The Physio Rooms Woodvale has been established by experienced physiotherapists David Makinson and Ashleigh Dobson who have worked in partnership for the past 5 years and bring over 18 years of clinical experience to the practice.
Dave and Ash are delighted to have had this opportunity to create a space where they will put their extensive physiotherapy skills and experience into practice and provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere to enable patients to benefit from real improvements and positive results in their health and well-being.
Their joint values and working practices not only define what they strive to achieve as physiotherapists but what they feel The Physio Rooms Woodvale should represent within the community.
The Physio Rooms Woodvale was established by directors and experienced physiotherapists David Makinson and Ashleigh Dobson, who have worked alongside each other for the past 5 years.
Physiotherapist and Director
David brings to The Physio Rooms Woodvale an abundance of knowledge, experience and passion for his role as a physiotherapist. With over 10 years’ experience, David originally qualified in the UK, and with a thirst for knowledge, returned to study his Masters in Physiotherapy after completing his initial degree. Not only does David have experience working in the UK, he has also travelled and worked extensively in New Zealand and Australia, settling in Perth with his young family for the past 5 years. David has experience in treating all manner of aches and pains but is particularly passionate about treating people with low back pain, and chronic or persistent pain. David thrives on seeing patients change in both their physical and mental wellbeing, which he achieves through not only his knowledge and skill, but his ability to listen and build a relationship with people. Outside of the clinic, David's interests revolve are his family, his dog, and, of course, "football"!
