David Fanthorpe

David graduated from Robert Gordons University in 2013 and joined SPEAR in 2016.  Having worked within the NHS and gaining experience in a wide range of rotational posts, David has an interest in both sports specific rehabilitation and assisting those who wish to improve their quality of life through physiotherapy input.


Of note, David worked as a physiotherapist within the Dundee United F.C Youth Academy and since moving to Aberdeen has been actively involved with the Aberdeen F.C Youth Academy.  Furthermore David has been providing pitch side cover for both Elgin and Huntly football club.  In August 2016 David gained valuable insight into working with elite athletes when he travelled to Sweden to work alongside the Great Britain Orienteering team at the World Orienteering Championships. 


Despite having a variety of skills in many different settings and areas of physiotherapy, David has a particular driving passion for golf specific physiotherapy.  This includes both rehabilitation and screening for game improvement.  David has more recently been actively involved in developing a link between the Kings Links Golf Centre and SPEAR Golf.
