David Russo
B. Chiro. Sci. / M. Chiro.


David graduated with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and a Masters of Chiropractic Degree from Macquarie University. He is currently studying Doctor of Physiotherapy at Macquarie University. Since then, David has followed his passion for sports-based treatment into a clinic, specialising in sports injuries, in particular ankle, hip, and lower limb issues. Personally, he has a keen interest in basketball, soccer, and MMA. Through clinical experience and ongoing education, he approaches injuries with a holistic approach in identifying and treating the underlying cause of the problem. Using a combination of manual therapy, rehabilitation, and patient education, David aims to gain the best clinical outcomes for his patients.

David first began his journey to becoming a chiropractor when he was 14. After starting a casual job at a local café, David began to develop lower back pain. It lasted a while until he said enough was enough. Through the guidance of a chiropractor, he decreased his pain and strengthened his body, preventing his pain from returning. This fueled David’s passion for assessing and treating musculoskeletal conditions, using principles that helped him recover from his lower back pain.
