Dan brings a specialist interest in treating and rehabilitating youth athletes to Balance Performance Physiotherapy.  This passion has led Dan to create and host his own podcast titled Believe Move Grow where he interviews experts and sport personalities in the area of youth physical and mental well-being. Dan brings all this knowledge to the clinic to optimise a youth athletes’ enjoyment of their chosen sport or physical activity.
