Dr Rick Davids – B.Ost, FAFS, FDN, ADAPT

Co-Founder, Osteopath & Functional Medicine Practitioner

Dr. Rick is a health and wellness expert with a passion for helping his patients achieve optimal health using an integrative approach. He is a registered Osteopath, graduating with distinction from the University College of Osteopathy (previously The British School of Osteopathy) in London. He then completed a Fellowship of Applied Functional Science at The Gray Institute in the USA, becoming one of only a handful of Osteopaths in Australia certified in this novel approach to exercise rehabilitation. Dr Rick went on train as a Functional Medicine Practitioner, completing extensive training with The Kresser Institute for Functional & Evolutionary Medicine and as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition. In addition, Rick is also a qualified Personal Trainer and Holistic Lifestyle Coach. 

Dr. Rick has an eclectic style of practice that is guided by principles of natural medicine and the latest in science. Drawing upon his skills in manual therapy, exercise prescription, nutrition and lifestyle medicine, Dr. Rick provides comprehensive and personalised treatment plans to meet the needs of his patients. A distinguishing feature of Dr. Rick’s approach is his focus on ‘root cause resolution’, where he aims to identify and address the underlying causes at the root of the issue, rather than simply suppressing symptoms.

As an avid learner, Dr. Rick endeavours to stay current with the latest developments in his field. He has a particular interest in working with patient suffering with chronic and unexplained health complaints, including pain and inflammatory disorders, digestive issues and autoimmune disease. In his spare time, Dr. Rick enjoys travelling, cooking, Brazilian Jujitsu and learning piano. When relaxing you will find him with his nose stuck in an interesting book, or watching a good movie with his wife and fellow Osteopath Michelle Davids.
