Dave Cross

Physio – Dave comes to us with a wealth of experience in private practice over the past 10 years both in NZ and Australia.  Dave graduated from AUT in 2007 with a Bachelor of Health Science in Physiotherapy and since then Dave has completed both Level 1 and Level 2 (Advanced) Dry Needling with GEMt as well as McKenzie Method for the Cervical/Thoracic and Lumbar spine.  Dave has a real passion for dry needling as he feels that it gives great improvement to “deactivate” muscles, help with muscle tightness and myofascial pain.  He feels that the needling gets in a lot deeper than massage and physiotherapy alone.  He is our specialist in dry needling if this is the treatment option you feel gives maximum benefit.  He has also done many other musculoskeletal post-graduate courses to improve his manual handling skills.  Dave has completed his Level 1 course in the treatment of headaches and migraines through the Watson Headache® Institute.  Dave has worked with both representative U18s Rugby and U19s Netball teams including at National Championships.  Dave is a preferred provider for Medibank Private, BUPA and HCF “More for Muscles” program.

Dave also works at the sister practice Gold Coast Headache Clinic alongside Melanie.  www.gcheadacheclinic.com.au

Away from work Dave has a keen interest in travel and the outdoors, as well as sports such as running, surfing, skateboarding and touch rugby.
