Meet Our Team

Over the years we’ve built up a team of highly experienced physiotherapists, each specialising in different areas. This allows us to provide quality tailored services to all sorts of clients with very specific needs. On this page, we’ve looked to provide some information on each of our valued staff members’ background and qualifications.

David Carter

Physiotherapist Specialist & Pilates Instructor – Bsc(Hons) Physiotherapy, MCSP, AACP
David qualified as a physiotherapist back in 2004, earning an honours degree in physiotherapy from the University of East London. He understands the need for supportive and guided care better than most, having gone through the recovery and rehabilitation process himself after being badly injured in a car accident during his time at university.

Beginning his career at Airedale NHS Trust, David developed his understanding of patient care before moving into the private sector. In 2008, he established C-Physio, and since then the clinic has grown and expanded both its team of physiotherapists and the services it offers.

Over the years, David has educated himself in the art of acupuncture, advanced manual therapy techniques and even APPI Modified Pilates. Our Clinic Lead and an ex-England international hockey player, David specialises in…

  • Back Pain
  • Whiplash
  • Sports Rehabilitation
  • Hand Therapy
  • Complex Injuries

He can teach Pilates in group sessions or on a 1-to-1 private basis. David can also carry out acupuncture, kinesiotaping, movement screening and sports performance monitoring. If any of these services interest you, give us a call today on 07968 436 201 or 01274 270 450.
