Hi my name is David Toomeh Sports Chiropractor and Owner of My Sports Chiropractor, Kingsgrove.
During my early twenties, I was playing a high level of representative soccer. However, I was experiencing constant injuries which kept me sidelined for weeks at a time. I found this was frustrating because when I wasn’t on the field, I wasn’t enjoying my sport.
I was visiting several health professionals for regular treatment, but my injuries continued.
I was getting frustrated with the quality of the services available to me.
The final straw was when I suffered a complete rupture of my anterior crucial ligament in my knee (ACL). You can imagine this was a devastating time for me because I had to accept that my soccer career was over.
This moment in my life, as traumatic as it was, became a turning point in my future. I knew that I wanted to help people like the younger me.
I enrolled in a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science and subsequently a Masters of Chiropractic both at Macquarie University where I graduated as a qualified Chiropractor. After graduating in 2012, I gained valuable experience practising in rural NSW along-side a knowledgeable sports practitioners in a multidisciplinary clinic. From this, I developed and fine-tuned my skills as a sports-based clinician.
In 2016 My Sports Chiropractor was started. My vision is to create a health-care facility that provides the highest standard of evidence-based care and personalised service. I believe in identifying the cause of an injury and taking the necessary steps to prevent the injury from re-occurring, something I wish I had when I was younger.
Since opening My Sports Chiropractor in 2016, I have continued further study and accreditation. In 2017 I became an Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (ICCSP) through the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS).
I am a current member of the following associations:
International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS)
Sports Medicine Australia (SMA)
Sports Chiropractic Australia (SCA).
My passion is in injury sports injury management and optimising performance for everyday people to professional athletes.
I work closely with a broad range of sporting organisations with a special interest in managing:
Mixed martial artists such as Brazilian Juijitsu (BJJ), Muay Thai and Krav Maga.
I am available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
