He also enjoys the challenge of helping those with complex or chronic injuries/pain that are often referred to him by other doctors or patients. He also embraces new technology that enhances the diagnosis and treatment of pain and injury.
Outside of the clinic, Damian enjoys spending his time with his young family, training in martial arts (aikido and muay thai) and pilates.
