Hi, I’m Dale, the founder of Hardiman Performance. I am a highly qualified and experienced Osteopath, Medical Acupuncturist and Sports Massage Therapist. Having graduated from London’s prestigious British School of Osteopathy with a Distinction in a Masters Degree, my passion truly lies in helping people like you you get back to living a pain free life. My love of science, people and systems combined with a never ending sense of curiosity has allowed me to develop strategies to reverse engineer your pain. In English, this means getting you back to a pain free state but more importantly keeping you there!
I love working with a broad group of people and on a daily basis my clinic welcomes and helps many including manual workers, office workers, entrepreneurs, athletes, expectant mothers and elderly populations. Being a former professional sportsman myself I am passionate about and am lucky enough to treat professional and international athletes including boxers, martial artists, power lifters, body builders, and endurance athletes.
At 16 years of age I joined and spent 5 years serving in the Royal Marines. During this period of time my passion for life, health and wellness developed significantly. I had always loved a challenge so upon leaving the armed forces I dove into a competitive international career in professional mixed martial arts. During this time I was able to become British Champion.
Pushing my body on a daily basis led me to experience many injuries which left me in intense pain and frustrated at not being able to use my body to the full. I was offered surgery for a shoulder injury but was keen to avoid going under the knife, this was when I sought the advice of an Osteopath.
Amazed by the results and my speedy recovery, my life path changed and I knew I had to share this wonderful profession with the world. I choose to pursue a career in helping others live their lives free from pain so that they can enjoy their body to the full.
As a previous long term sufferer of chronic back pain since the age of 14, I can tell you I know exactly how it feels to live with this both physically and emotionally. I can completely empathise with what you are going through! Fortunately, I am now pain free and have been for the last couple of years. I can get you there too!
My specialist area is in the treatment of back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain. I have also carried out research into the treatment of athletic groin pain/hip pain and am passionate about treating sports injuries.
If you are in physical pain and want to get back to a pain free life then feel free to get in contact. I would love to help you get back to health.
