Profile - Dave Hearne

I am a Chartered Physiotherapist who has been working in the National Health Service (N.H.S) for over twenty years. I set up my private practice in Musculoskeletal and Sports Injury Physiotherapy in 2004.

My physiotherapy experience has been varied. It has included treatment and rehabilitation work with the Orthopaedic Consultants at The Freeman Hospital as well as the Newcastle General Hospital and the Washington Spire Private Hospital. I work with and rehabilitate patients who have sustained a wide variety of injuries from sports injuries, orthopaedic and soft tissue trauma, spinal and neck injuries as well as a variety of other injuries to the musculoskeletal system. I have also set up the now well established Joint Injection Service within the Community Outpatient Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Outpatient Service and work as an Extended Scope Practitioner administering steroid joint injection for the upper and lower limb pathologies.

I work in my private practice based within The Sound in Mind and Body Health Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I am passionate about what I do. I also believe that regular exercise is very important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and in preventing injuries and strains. Exercise is also very good for maintaining mental wellbeing.

I am interested in a variety of sports, especially golf and rugby, as well as hiking in the hills.

Whether you are a patient from outside the health club or a club member at Sound Mind and Body, if you do suffer an injury, as the club Chartered Physiotherapist, I am available to you to offer a thorough clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment/rehabilitation plan to help you return to full fitness. I am also happy, with your consent, to liaise with the appropriate personal trainer, where applicable, to guide you back to normal exercise and sporting activity. This multi-disciplinary package of clinical physiotherapy working together with trainer expertise provides a client-centred approach which is essential for effective rehabilitation. It is also an extra benefit that many other gyms in the area do not offer. If you have any questions with regards to the physiotherapy service available here at Sound Mind and Body Health Club, please do not hesitate to either contact me on 07754826884 or come and speak with me.
