Meet Team Transcend
Duncan is our open minded, lateral thinking, bearded physiotherapist. Duncan Has been practicing physiotherapy for the past 6 years. In 2014 Duncan partially lost use of his left foot due to Sciatic nerve damage resulting from a back injury. The 12-month process of recovery and rehabilitation changed his whole perspective on his physiotherapy practice. This was the catalyst for what is now physiotherapy at Transcend Health. In Duncan’s words: “My vision is not to see the diagnosis or pain, but to get a broader understanding of the person. Their unique finger print, this combined with the diagnosis will allow us to really form a process to better movement and greater quality of life”.
So let’s find your unique process.
When he is not working Duncan enjoys good conversation, handstands, coffee, and scotch. (Not necessarily in that order)
