How An Irish Physiotherapist Living In England Can Help You Get The Confidence To Become The ‘Go To Therapist’ In Your Town

Dear Private Practice Therapist,


I’m Dave, Founder of the ProSport Academy.

Let’s not beat around the bush here.

You’re on this website because you’re hungry to grow your confidence, clinical skills and truly help your patients get great results

Not hear my life story.

If you are interested in that (and I’m flattered, really), then go here.

But here’s the short version…

While I was getting great results working in professional sport I found growing my private practice on the side challenging.

Patient expectations were high and their motivation and adherence to rehab exercise far less than my pro athletes.

Up to that point, I was apprehensive about growing my private practice predictably while protecting my reputation given the lack of adherence and motivation of some private practice patients…

When my oldest daughter, Ava May, was starting to grow up quite quickly… I knew then I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life working weekends in pro sport on a full-time basis. I’d be missing out on too much.

That was when I finally decided to install what happens day in, day out in pro sport approach and put it in place into private practice.

That is…

In the initial assessment, tell the patient what’s going on…

Why the problem has happened in the first place…

What the treatment plan will look like each week to make sure it doesn’t come back again…

What targets they need to be hitting each week to progress

and roughly what timescale they can expect to be back doing what they need to be able to do (how many sessions it will take).

I’ll be honest, I was a little nervous at first but the results have been phenomenal.

All the stress, frustrations and even ‘awkwardness’/embarrassment’ I used to go through when patients were handing over money at the end of sessions even though they were not really making progress vanished…

I found that setting expectations from the very first session and giving the patient complete clarity on their step by step treatment plan changed everything for me…

It eliminated the problems I was running in sessions 3,4 and 5 previously… of the progress stagnating… and the pain returning.

I noticed fewer patients were canceling… and they were also happy to stick to the full treatment plan… even when the pain started easing.

My clinic numbers rapidly soared… and I had to take on my first full-time therapist, Shane Mooney even when I was still full time in professional sport.

Shane was working in the NHS at the time and quit his job and came to work with me. I taught Shane my step by step system and how to implement my pro sport approach into private practice.

Shane was also able to put in place the step by step pro sports system and the clinic continued to grow.

When my second daughter Ruby Rae was born, I knew the time was right to exit full-time professional sport…

I was constantly getting emails from therapists and student physiotherapists asking me to mentor them…

And Shane was doing a great job growing the clinic further so instead of going full time into private practice straight away… I decided I would split my time for a year between treating private practice patients… and mentor a small group of 20 therapists.

It was then that I started The ProSport Academy… and my very first mentorship group… little over six years ago… from my garage in my old house and my ‘grubby’ treatment room that was my clinic at the time.

In all honesty, I thought I would do it for a year until we continued to grow the practice and then I would naturally go full time in the clinic.

But I quickly noticed a pattern developing in all these therapists that were looking for a mentor.

The majority had spent huge amounts of money on various courses, even similar courses to what I’d taken myself…

I presumed I would teach them some hands-on and rehab techniques…

But what I soon realized is that what they all really NEEDED was to DEVELOP a structured step by step system…

Not one of them had any real clarity on how to link the subjective assessment right through to the high-end rehab.

Or certainly, the therapists were really strong in some aspects but had gaps in other areas.

Fast forward to today, and…

We have helped over 368 therapists in over 20 countries (at the time of writing this) implement a structured ‘pro sport’ approach in private practice…

Built Differently From The Ground Up

We help therapists, newly graduated and experienced, to differentiate themselves from every other clinic in their town… by implementing “ahead of the curve” pro sports step by step strategies… with an aim to get great patient results… that ethically increases your revenue, retention, and referrals. The video below is a peek behind the curtain on what makes our approach so vastly different.

We’re The Fastest Growing Continuing Professional Development Provider In The World… For Private Practice Therapists… Because… Our Therapists Are The Fastest Growing Clinics

In other words, your growth is our growth.

And our rapid success is proof in itself that what we do for therapists like you works.

The ProSport Academy’s ‘Go To’ Therapist Mentorship is SO ruthlessly effective…

That this year my own clinic will continue to grow even in the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Because we don’t just talk about doing this for our therapists we mentor…

We actually DO IT. Every day. In my own clinic.

Last year we brought on two additional full time sports therapists into my own clinic to join my team and trained them up from scratch using the step by step system…

This year, we’re gunning to double that again.

It’s an ambitious goal. But we know from our research and results exactly what we need to do to make that happen. Clinically, Financially. Strategically.

Our Mentorship’s sole focus is on teaching actionable content that gets real-world results for our therapists.

We help you link the subjective assessment to the objective assessment… designing treatment plans while setting patient expectations… progressing patients to the high level rehab… and strength and conditioning…all the while commanding the authority needed as a ‘Go To’ Therapist… to help even the trickiest patients.

And all of which naturally grow your salary and your business.

Many times, therapists just want to double their caseload as a three year goal but actually hit that within 3 months…

In January 2019, one therapist wanted to go from seeing 3 patients a week to 12 and now treats 30+ patients a week, all over the world ONLINE.

Another therapist’s goal was to have a consistent busy diary but actually end up having to hire other therapists to cope with the demand.

Working with us is — and I’m not bragging when I say this — probably the smartest way to make your marketing budget work for your business.

But hold up a second. Because if you’re thinking about working with The ProSport Academy in 2020, you should know something…

If You’re Looking For A ‘Magic Bullet’, An ‘Easy Hands On Technique That Helps Every Patient’ Or To ‘Get Rich Quick’ Please Kindly Leave This Website.

If you’re after a ‘Get Rich Quick’ scheme… or you want to take advantage of patients by getting them to sign up to a package of treatment and do the same hands on treatment techniques every session…

You just want to grow your clinic revenue but you don’t ACTUALLY have a burning passion to want to help your patients…


…you think that all you need to worry about is getting new patients every month… and this is magically going to turn your clinic into a dominating success in town…

Then you should leave this website right now.

The ProSport Academy is a community that will support, mentor and guides you… to having the confidence and clarity.. to continually progress a patient from the first session to the last.

Not an ‘Easy Button To Riches’ course that will fill you with hot air and sell you on a pipe dream.

Having a ‘Go To’ Therapist reputation is HARD WORK.

Yes, when it’s all up and running, it can be just like you imagined: People traveling from all over the country to see you, referrals left right and centre… and money in the bank.

But it takes HARD WORK to figure everything out. We know that well.

Getting the step by step structure to flow is literally 80% of the battle.

That’s what we work on for you.

We work as hard on getting everything working well for you as we do for our own therapists in my clinic.

We’re not a so-called ‘business growth course’ that will teach you how to get new patients on the internet… that looks cool but delivers no tangible results.

There’s no smoke and mirrors in how we grow your reputation and business.

Just measurable results and ROI by maximising your clinical skills and GETTING REAL WORLD RESULTS FOR PATIENTS.

That’s the essence of our profession after all.

The Get Real-World Results For Patients ethos is The ProSport Academy’s beating heart.

A Rigorously Tested, Proven System For Helping You Get Predictable Long Lasting Results With Your Patients

The ProSport Academy creates a simple step by step approach… that allows you to make sense of your patients symptoms… know where to start… and progress them effortlessly while knowing you are on the right track without you having to make all the expensive mistakes. The three main ways we do that are:

We Help You Find The True Cause Of The Problem (Not Just Diagnose The Symptoms

Through asking higher quality questions in the subjective assessment… you can elicit higher quality information… that allows you to make sense of the patient’s symptoms in the objective assessment – so you can find the true stressor.

We Help You Design The Treatment Plan Which Gives The Patient Clarity And Sets Expectations From The Very First Session

Most courses will teach you hands on or exercises techniques next…We’ll teach you how to give patients complete clarity on their ‘bespoke’ treatment plan that makes it virtually impossible for them NOT to do their exercises…And we help you set expectations from the first session so they stay on track even when the pain eases.

We Support You In Implementing The Step By Step Treatment Plan Right Through To The High Level Progressions

Once we’ve got your patient on board, we fine-tune the plan every session and start progressing through their graded exposure program. We show you how to design rehab plans that patients actually care about doing AND how to ensure they become your best source of word of mouth referrals.

If you know anything about The ProSport Academy, you know we’re OBSESSED with this stuff.

I can (and often do) go on about using hands-on techniques that get long-lasting results… how to actually implement pain science in the real world… ‘protocols and progressions’… strength and conditioning techniques and so on.

You can learn all that stuff yourself, if you want.

But you’re not here for a lecture.

You’re here because you want to grow your reputation while helping your patients.

And you want to know for sure that we can do that for you.

You believe in giving the best possible care to your patients.

You respect your patients and you want to make their lives better in some way.

“The Mentorship has allowed me to have a lot more spare time, I no longer spend 90 minutes with some patients. I have reduced my time with a patient down a lot to the point where I’m going home to my kids a lot fresher and I no longer work on the weekend. The Mentorship has given me a much quicker route to getting to where I am now”

Alan O’Brien

“The support that I get from the Mentorship has been crucial for my results. As I am working it’s great to have a support team that I can bounce idea’s off and when I have a difficult patient that isn’t progressing as well as I’d hoped I can get in contact with the team and get a reply instantly and that’s what has really helped me get consistently great results”
