Dr. Tom McCormick (Osteopath)
B.App.Sc. (Comp. Med.), M.Ost.
Member of the Australian Osteopathic Association
After incurring many injuries throughout his junior sporting career and enduring weeks of rehabilitation, Tom knew early on that he wanted to have a career in health. After seeking treatment and advice from a variety of health practitioners and not necessarily getting the results, Tom sought treatment and advice from an osteopath. Tom believed that osteopathy was the most successful treatment option and made the decision to pursue a career as an osteopath.
Tom has a real passion for helping people recover and helping to reduce their levels of pain and believes osteopathic treatment can assist many people within our community.
Outside of work you will no doubt find Tom constantly training for several sporting events, enjoying locally brewed coffee, and socialising with good friends and family.
