Tommy Cartwright

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Chiropractic Science, and a Master’s degree in Chiropractic, from Macquarie University. I complemented my studies with an extensive program of observation of health professionals working in a range of therapy styles. To date, I am privileged to have observed over 50 practitioners, including physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors in real consultations with patients. This unique experience combined with my current qualifications, and my own experience in practice and at sporting events, has enabled me to fine tune my skills to offer patients a refined and effective brand of physical therapy.

As a tennis enthusiast, I have competed regularly in Australian National Ranking Tournaments and I am currently the only qualified chiropractor in Australia to have held a ranking inside the top 500 players. My participation in sport at a high level has made me acutely aware of the physical demands people can place on their bodies from time to time, and the damage that can result.

I also hold a Bachelor’s degree in Music from the Australian Institute of Music, and have performance experience in both orchestras and small bands. I am, consequently, also quite familiar with the discomfort that musicians sometimes endure as a result of poor posture and repetitive strain. I founded Cartwright Physicaltherapy in August 2013.

The practice prides itself on offering a range of therapeutic techniques for musculoskeletal complaints. Currently, I am trained in Active Release Technique [ART], Graston Technique,dry needling, Cold Laser Therapy (PBMT), McKenzie Technique, ROCKTAPE and Gait Scan orthotic therapy.  I embrace learning and am forever updating my skill set.

Philip White

I completed a Diploma of Remedial Massage in 2012 from the Australian College of Natural Therapies. This marked the beginning of my passion in the health and fitness industry, and my interest in helping others overcome pain, manage injury and perform at their highest level. A desire to further educate myself about the human body saw me complete a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science at Sydney University, and more recently in 2016, return to study to embark upon a three year Doctor of Physiotherapy degree at Macquarie University.

Part of my sporting experience includes competing in ultimate frisbee at an international level for over 10 years. In doing this, I have developed a keen interest in ways to best manage my own training, sporting performance and well-being. Much of the time I can be found training out. I have also been fortunate to work extensively with the Greater Western Sydney Giants AFL Club since 2012. Other clients include the likes of paralympic athletes, internationally competitive powerlifters, and even one of Australia’s most successful concert pianists.

Louis Darmizin

From early childhood, Lou suffered from back pain caused by his scoliosis which led him to discovering the benefits of Chiropractic care. Growing up he was unable to participate in sports and social activities. Regular Chiropractic care gave him a new lease on life and it is then that he decided that he was going to dedicate his life to help others achieve a pain free and healthy lifestyle.

Lou graduated with a Bachelor and Masters of Chiropractic Science from Macquarie University.

Lou has extensive knowledge in postural and back related injuries. His integrative approach incorporates soft tissue therapy, acupuncture, rehabilitation, lifestyle advice along with manual and gentle adjusting techniques.

He has a passion for soccer and rugby. He also earned local, regional and state level competition titles as a squad swimmer. His goal is to inspire, educate and encourage his patients to maintain a happy and pain free lifestyle.

Glenn Stevens

Glenn has always been a great lover of sport; growing up he played a wide variety of sports. His passion for Australian Rules saw him travel around the country representing the state from 15-18 years of age. Whilst at university he also held a scholarship at Sydney University playing in their first grade team.

This love of sport also saw Glenn spend a lot of time in physiotherapists, chiropractors offices and doctors surgeries, which piqued his curiosity into how the body moves, functions and repairs, leading him down the path to becoming a primary healthcare practitioner.

After completing a Bachelor of Nursing at Sydney University in 2007, Glenn went on to graduate from Macquarie University with a Bachelor of Chiropractic Science in 2012, followed by a Masters in Chiropractic in 2014.

Upon completing his Masters Glenn sought further education in advanced musculoskeletal dry needling, Active Release Techniques, kinesio-taping (Rock Tape), and sport training via Sports Medicine Australia, and is currently working with the GWS Giants AFL team. Glenn is always expanding my knowledge base to deliver the best quality of care to his patients and is currently undertaking post-graduate studies in The Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (ICCSP) program.

Glenn currently hold memberships with: Chiropractic Australia (CA), Sports Chiropractic Association of Australia (SCA),Sports Medicine Australia (SMA), and the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic (FICS).
