Meet Team Transcend
Duncan is our open minded, lateral thinking, bearded physiotherapist. Duncan has been practising physiotherapy since 2011. In 2014 Duncan had a major back injury that resulted in damage to the sciatic nerve causing partial loss of use to his left foot. The 12-month process of recovery and rehabilitation changed how he practices physiotherapy, with a new philosophy and better understanding of what patients go through. This was the catalyst for what is physiotherapy at Transcend Health. In Duncan’s words: “My vision is not see a just a diagnosis, but have a broader understanding of you, the individual. Your unique situation, combined with the diagnosis. Allowing us to really form a process. Leading greater quality of life”.
Let’s find your process.
When he is not working Duncan enjoys good conversation, handstands, coffee, and scotch. (Not necessarily in that order)
