"As a competitive runner, nothing is more frustrating than sitting on the sidelines with injury. I arrived in London from the USA with right knee pain and left foot pain that had persisted for over a year's time. My session with David Mc Gettigan was nothing short of revelatory as he discovered my body was still compensating for a severely sprained ankle (22 years ago) and a hernia repair surgery (15 years ago). The completely painless treatment culminated with 3 exercises that simulated phases of gait I'd not been able to access previously. I've done my homework daily and now, 2 weeks later, I'm excited to report the annoying pains have no further reason to exist! Feels incredible to not only run pain-free, but to wake up, take a few steps and realise I don't have to hobble anymore at first haha!! Big gratitude to David!!"

"Incredible, mind blowing treatment that knocks the socks of anything that you would have experienced. Just leaves you thinking about all the people you love who you would know would benefit from such excellence. Thanks for treating our daughter to your work, and helping our Irish dancer to move her body like she is meant to and getting her to be the person she is now , through treating her from the accidents she had when she was small. This treatment approach is the only way forward for anyone suffering pain, brain fog or movement issues etc. You are my Guru! Thank you David! "

I saw David for a few sessions ,before we were rudely interrupted by the Lockdown, for back and hip pain. Having... fractured my back in my 20´s I thought the pain was due to this and had really made up my mind that this was the case. David has taught me to look at pain and movement in a completely different way, Where I thought that the pain was from an old injury I have learnt from him that it is probably more to do with my body protecting old trauma´s i.e. surgeries that I have had. I can honestly say that I can move better, I do not have the stiffness and pain I used to have and my energy levels are improving. I would recommend David to anyone suffering with movement/pain problems, really great guy who takes his time to make sure you understand your treatment. Looking forward to continuing with our sessions when all this chaos is over.read more

I went to David after 18 months of ongoing leg & back pain. I had been to so many specialist - chiropractor, physio,... acupuncturist, GP, physical therapist etc. All said that they couldn't really see where the problem was coming from or what was causing it. I was in constant pain, I wasn't sleeping properly and it was starting to affect my mood and overall well being. I felt frustrated and at all loss as to what to do. Physically nothing was wrong with me from what I had been told yet I was in so much pain. I had spent a fortune and wasn't getting anywhere in a prognosis. Then I visited David, straight away I felt that I was being listened to. He spent time going through my history and examining me. After my first visit I felt a difference, there was a change happening in my body and every visit after that. David has helped my pain so much that I am no longer in constant pain and it has been a relief to finally be pain free. David is very professional and knowledgeable in his field and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much David for helping me and so many others!read more

I came to David due to hip pain which has become the bane of my life for the past 3-4 years. After seeing multiple... physios previously with no forward progress, I was hesitant at parting my cash for yet another Physio session. In the past I’ve left appointments thinking “What exactly did I just get from my money…?”. Within minutes, I could tell David was different from my past experiences. He actually learned about my history, looked at how I currently moved… then performed what can only be described as wizardry on me. Only a quarter of the way in to the session, my body was feeling and moving differently. By the end, I could notice some big changes. The pain was almost completely gone. Moving forward from the session, the hip pain I experienced has vanished. I can’t say enough good words about David, I’m recommending him to everyone I meet who needs a physio, even though they’ll have to take a flight to meet him!read more

I have come to David with extremely hard back and leg pains. I was sure that I have broken disk in my spine because... X-ray has shown so 10 years ago. The pain was so strong that I was unable to do basic household things and what I regret the most, I could not play with my son. My most common answer to my son was "Daddy have back pain" 🙁 After only one treatment David has fixed my problem and after more than 10 years of swallowing painkillers, I'm free of a back and leg pains. He is a miracle worker 🙂 Thank you, David, because you have made me to love my body again and helped me to be more involved in raising my kids and play with them (special thanks from my wife) 😀read more

I was very lucky to have been given the opportunity to attend David's clinic on a number of occasions where he worked... on several areas that had been causing me discomfort one particularly being my lower back on one side. David's method was different from the norm, he sits down with you, goes through your history - physical and emotional and assesses all possibilities of where the pain might be stemming from. The minute I stepped onto the floor after a treatment I could feel the difference, so much so that on my last session I said I feel like I want to go for a run right now. I haven't looked back. I would 100% recommend a visit to David especially before undergoing any medical procedure because he might just have a different answer for you. Thanks David �read more

David was recommended to me by a friend and as a sufferer with migraine and neck pain I was eager to find out for... myself.

I’ve had 2 sessions with David following recurring hip and lower back discomfort for many years. His full assessment... and clear explanations were beneficial and also really interesting to hear and I was delighted to walk out of his clinic after the first session feeling so much better. My second session only went on to cement that feeling and I’m delighted that my hip and lower back pain is almost non existent now. I’ve recommended David to a few of my pilates clients as well, and I know from feedback that they’ve been as impressed with him as I have �read more

Before i saw David i was thinking about quitting my job and passion as a skier. I suffered from chronic cramping of the... lower legs, feet, and hamstrings which had a knock on effect to everything else further up my body. It got to the point where my cramping would last weeks, and would stop my ability to walk up and down stairs and even walk around. Sometimes this resulted in total foot numbness. Nothing that i tried worked to a point where i was going to get surgery to see what was going on. I was not in a good place, both mentally and physically. A friend of mine in the business told me to try one more avenue of treatment, before giving up completely, which led me to David. In 90 minutes he did more for me than 4 doctors, 2 specialist, 3 physiotherapists, 2 surgeons and countless others put together. After three sessions with David over the course of a week my cramping was gone, and my mobility, strength, and alignment saw almost instant improvement. I felt a huge physical and mental release. I slept better, had more energy, focus, attitude and my general outlook became positive. I still see David in between seasons and i feel better than i have ever done. I am seeing continual progress on and off the slopes, in the gym and in my personal life. Without David i wouldn't be living the life that i want to live. If you are being hesitant about booking an appointment, don't be. It will be the best decision you have ever made to come and see this magician at work. I see know-one else, and plan my flight back to the Uk around when he is available. Cant say enough good things!!!read more

After 9yrs & 2 knee operations I met with David with a plea to finding a solution to my constant knee pain which was... interfering with not only my sporting life but also my everyday living. I have seen numerous doctors, consultants, holistics etc and spent 1000's with no avail. THEN I MET DAVID and this is how I synonyms between previous treatments and his approach: I visualise previous treatments where the physical body take form of an onion and when peeled back unveils very little but the simple onion!!! YET with davids approach the physical and mental body take the form of a budding rose and when petals unfolded and nurtured carefully unveils the beautiful rose. David has such knowledge of the body movement and how one learns to compensate after physical or indeed mental/emotional traumas......I am indeed on my road to recovery!!! Thank you Davidread more

"I had a knee replacement and revision surgery within the past year and was still in pain. My Surgeon could do no more for me and I had resigned myself to the fact, that this pain was with me for the rest of my life. Immediately after my consultation with David I felt relief and have been improving everyday since. I don't need to use my crutches anymore and I can walk pretty normal.... this is all after only ONE visit. If you are suffering pain, I would highly recommend you pay a visit to David."
Eileen Mc Loughlin
"When I first visited David’s clinic, I had experienced 6 years of chronic hip and thigh pain and had exhausted many different avenues of treatment. After my first visit, my pain improved immensely. I was also able to sleep comfortably again and take part in activities without fear. After my third visit, I was pain free. I feel a huge burden has been lifted both physically and mentally. David’s treatment techniques are revolutionary and he is extremely knowledgeable, professional, kind and understanding. I will definitely be recommending David to anyone experiencing pain."
Rita Bowens
"Davids knowledge and explanation on the science of pain is excellent, he was also able to identify and address some hidden weaknesses I was having. David also helps to change the way your body addresses pain by giving you confidence in the bodies perceived weaknesses thus avoiding the the seizing up of muscles when encountering these perceptions. Highly recommended if you have injuries that no one else seems to be able to address."
Shane Burns
"I have just started my journey with David but I have felt great relief and comfort from the progress we made in 1 session and that there is a plan to alleviate any issues. Instead of feeling like you are overthinking pain, David actively encourages keeping a pain log which is great as you don't always remember little issues we manage day to day or during activities. I can't wait for the next session. I would highly recommend him as he is very professional and easy to chat to."
Jason Andrews
"David has helped me with shoulder and back issues after injuries. He also helped address some problems I was having in terms of my energy levels and concentration. The approach he uses seems incredibly complex and yet David explains everything clearly and concisely. I feel better than ever and I have a better understanding of how my body works."
Mark Wilkinson
"David was recommended to me a year ago by a friend from Netherland, but he was still working in London, so I couldn't find time to see him. Luckily, David opened his clinic in Dublin 🙂 Even after my first visit, I felt way better and by the time of my third visit, my pain was gone! I am thrilled with his work and approach and would highly recommend David to anyone!"

Niall Shannon
"Visit to David, gave me a surprising release, feeling of lightness in my lower back where muscles were acting overprotective because of the old injury. Very uplifting effect as that helps to go much deeper in my yoga practice now. Ground-breaking approach to physiotherapy!"
Anna Arts
"I really enjoyed the session with David and was amazed at the results.I am walking better, standing more upright and my energy levels have increased. I would highly recommend David to anyone who has had no joy from their doctors or any other therapists. You can put you fingers on the problems instantly."
Angela Mason
"Having spent 3 and 1/2 years out of sport due to injury with no hopes of returning anytime soon, I nearly threw in the towel. It was at this point I met David Mc Gettigan and that all changed. After a few sessions, I went from being barely able to walk properly without pain to being fully able to run again. I'm now 22 and back playing football at a elite standard in the Irish League after being told I would be lucky to run, let alone play again. Its been a long road but I'm back where I am for one reason. Thats David!!!!"
Tom O Halloran
"When I first met David I had exhausted all other avenues of treatment . I was in constant pain over most of my body and had terrible brain fog along with a list of other symptoms. I battled with feelings of helplessness and depression as I just couldn’t see progress back to my normal self. I didn't expect a quick fix but my first session was amazing! David was so knowledgable and professional but also extremely sensitive, calm and kind which really matters when you are in so much pain. I can honestly say David has transformed my life. I now have my life back and I am pain free! David is a fantastic practitioner and I think everyone would benefit from his amazing work. I recommend him to everyone."

"I came to David with numerous issues, and have been working with him for the last 18 months flying down from Aberdeen to London. Over this time I have had improvements beyond that which I could have hoped. The confidence this has given me in my training, and the progress that I have been able to make as a result of our sessions together has made all of the travel worthwhile and I am very grateful for the time taken to work through the list of problem areas. I would highly recommend David to anyone in pain, and would encourage patience with the process; I am so pleased that I continued the sessions over such an extended period."
Tim Mc Cune
"Having known David for two years since the start of my own learning journey , I can confidently say that David is one the best therapists and teachers i have the pleasure to call a friend. His passion and drive to help others is clear to see, and he utilises a breadth of knowledge from a range of different disciplines to get people back to where they need to be. I have also had the pleasure to work and teach alongside David using P-DTR. I have therefore seen the transformations of many clients he has worked with. If you have any issues big or small, get in touch!"
Gareth Cox
"David is quite simply brilliant, inspired and passionately dedicated to his work - and it shows in the outcomes in his clients. Do not, for one moment, hesitate in working with this man - you will not regret it."
Dr. Kim Jobst
Left the clinic feeling that my pain and movement will be improved and eventually I will have no pain and my movement will return to normal after my knee replacement. My appointments have been very insightful and meaningful.

After one visit I can see and feel an improvement. This is the first time in 8 months that I am not in pain and not taking medication!
