Tom graduated with A Bachelor of Physiotherapy from The University of South Australia (achieving the University Merit Award). He has extended qualifications in strength and conditioning, dry needling, osteoarthritis management and cervicogenic (neck caused) headaches, and from a past life, a Bachelor of Commerce!
Although it took me a little while to end up working as a Physiotherapist, I absolutely love it and could not imagine doing anything else! Having worked in rehabilitation and private practice, I strive to make my patients feel well enough to begin moving the way they need to – to live a full and rewarding life.
In 2008, during the final year of my Commerce degree I made the decision to apply to Physiotherapy and... I got in! However, cold feet got the better of me and I chose to finish what I had started and wrapped up my Bachelor of Commerce.
Fast forward a handful of years (travelling and working some amazing jobs), I knew what my heart was set on and finally started my Physio degree! I could not be happier with my decision to requalify.
A wise person once told me “Doctors save lives, Physios make them worth living.” I couldn't agree more!
Out of the clinic I love (in no particular order); travelling, cycling, gardening, CrossFit, cooking and getting my nerd on with board games and fantasy novels.
