David Gitonga

Physiotherapist MCSP, MAACP, Reg HCPC; BSc Phys, MSc. Sports Science.

I am a registered independent private physiotherapist with over 15 years’ experience, mainly specialising in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems within a wide age range.

I have worked in  the private and public health in Finland and UK in both sports and medical rehabilitation and have a delivery track record within the South East of England, Dorset and recently with the Cardiff & Vale University Board. This breadth of experience has enabled me to learn and develop in a culturally rich environment as well as to appreciate the many variations that exist in understanding and managing pain and patients at an acute level and with advanced levels of chronicity.  I also work well with local GPs and orthopaedic consultants and do refer patients back if our tests reveal that they require further examinations or tests to facilitate their quick recovery or management.

I have recently worked for Benenden Hospital as a senior musculoskeletal and orthopaedics physiotherapist, alongside running my Haywards Heath physiotherapy clinic, David Physio & Sports Clinic, where I am centrally based now.

Our Clinic

We advise our patients to seek advice if they have incurred an injury, however minor it may seem at the time, as even minor injuries can start affecting the adjacent joint’s function thereby causing more tissue damage in the area or affected limb.

Our timely examination and treatment aims to:

Ease Pain

Improve functional & performance capabilities

Reduce the risk of
re-injury & rehabilitation


We are a hands on clinic specialising in treatment of Musculoskeletal problems, including:

Spinal Related Problems

(neck pain, chronic back pain, migraines, whiplash injuries)

Sports injuries

(tennis elbow, shoulder pain, knee injuries/pain, hip pain, recurrent ankle sprains)

Gait/Running technique

assessment and advice for all levels and ages

Guided One-to-one Rehab

focussed on falls prevention/stroke/heart/lungs-related mobility problems

We believe each patient is unique in the way they function and react in presence of pain.

That’s why our focus on providing a holistic patient-centred care. We work hard to learn your needs as a patient and an individual and tailor your treatment accordingly to improve your outcomes after every session.

How we Work

We provide a comprehensive assessment during your first visit to determine the root cause of the problem so that by the time you leave our clinic you feel confident of how to move forwards with your rehabilitation no matter how complex your injury or problem is.
