Mr David Sweeting
Highly Specialist Physiotherapist
BA(Hons), BSc(Hons), MSc, MMACP
"I am really pleased to be a member of the terrific Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy team at Spire Norwich Hospital."
I specialise in active rehabilitation of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. I have had training in Health Coaching and this helps me take a patient-centred approach; seeking to empower each patient and focusing on what is important to that individual.
Prior to joining Spire Norwich Hospital in 2021, I worked within the NHS, culminating as Clinical Lead for Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy.
I am a research active clinician. I have completed the Foundations of Clinical Research module at the University of East Anglia with Distinction (2015). I have publications in peer-reviewed journals on topics including shoulder pain, anterior knee pain and heel pain.
I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 1996. After two years general experience at Charing Cross Hospital in London, I moved to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham to specialise in Musculoskeletal (MSK) Physiotherapy. In 2000 I moved to Norwich and joined the NHS in Great Yarmouth as a Senior MSK Physiotherapist. I completed my Masters Degrees (MSc) in Manipulative Physiotherapy at the University of East Anglia in 2005.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr David Sweeting at Spire include:
BSc(Hons 1st Class) Physiotherapy / Brunel University College, London / 1996
Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy
BSc Physiotherapy degree leads into Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration.
Member, Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (MCSP)
Member, Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MMACP)
Outside of work, I like to spend time with my wife and two daughters. I also have a passion for cycling and still compete in both on and off-road events.
