Dr Rick Davids


Rick is a wellness expert with a passion for helping individuals recover from injury and regain their health using an integrative approach. He is a UK-trained Osteopath, graduating with distinction from the British School of Osteopathy in London. He is certified in dry needling and is one of only a handful of Osteopaths in Australia certified in Applied Functional Science (AFS) having complete a fellowship in human biomechanics and exercise rehabilitation with the renowned Gray Institute in the USA. In addition, Rick is a Functional Medicine Practitioner and has completed training with the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine and is also a member of the International College of Human Nutrition & Functional Medicine.


Rick uses a range of hands-on techniques to provide relief from pain, swelling, muscle tension, joint restrictions and trapped nerves. With an emphasis on functional movement, stretching and exercise, Rick encourages an active participation in the treatment process as soon as possible. As a functional medicine practitioner, he uses advanced diagnostic lab testing, personalised nutrition and lifestyle strategies to improve his patient’s health and assist in the management of chronic and degenerative disease. It is by combining his skills in manual therapy, exercise rehabilitation and nutrition that Rick is able to offer a unique combination of treatment approaches to meet the varying needs of his patients.


In his spare time, Rick enjoys travelling, cooking, exercise and learning piano. When relaxing you will find him with his nose stuck in an interesting book, or snuggled up with Michelle watching a good movie.
