Dag was born in Bergen, Norway. He studied Physiotherapy in Aberdeen, Scotland, graduated in 1990 and became a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy. Dag has acquired extensive experience in sports injuries, orthopaedic rehabilitation, neurological rehabilitation as well as manual therapy of the spine and extremities using various manual techniques.
Dag has a special interest in the use of Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), which is a gentler form of manual therapy to perform adjustments. He is trained in the Australian Dynamic Stability & Muscle Balance Exercise approach and he uses electrotherapeutic modalities in rehabilitation.
He also has extensive experience with sports related injuries and rehabilitation following strains, sprains, contusions, tears and/or fractures. As a physiotherapist Dag is skilled in advice and education for a variety of muscular and joint problems. He has specific exercises to help reduce pain, improve strength and endurance, returning you to full function and sporting ability.
Dag has 17 years of experience in manual therapy and has over the years developed his own unique style of manual therapy adjustments. The system of manual therapy has been inspired by the best Physiotherapy and Osteopathic practitioners from all over the world. He believes in a gentle yet powerful application of force (vectors) to re-align the joints of the spine & any of the peripheral joints as well. He also uses massage to allow for gentle or deep soft tissue release as required. Massage helps improve circulation and reduce post-exercise soreness. It also increases flexibility, releases tight muscles and therefore enhances overall sports performance.
As a Physiotherapist, Dag’s experience complements our existing chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, naturopathic and high performance sports testing services, and in such a way that we feel it’s close to being the perfect mix of health care professionals available in one clinic!
