Tom 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.

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.

I am an experienced Physiotherapist specialising in the treatment of back and neck related pain, but equally happy treating other musculoskeletal conditions. I obtained a First Class Honours degree in Physiotherapy from Cardiff University (UK) in 2005, and also hold a degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences.

After training in the Sarah Key Method of treating problem backs in 2009 and joining the team at the Sarah Key Physiotherapy Centre in 2017, I am now very passionate and experienced in treating those with back and neck related problems. Following the closure of Sarah’s Sydney clinic, I was keen to continue providing specialist care for patients, so started The Back Physio. I am currently practising part time out of Cartwright Physicaltherapy.

I believe that the effective management of pain is achieved through education, focused manual therapy and simple exercises and strategies that help you to help yourself. I also believe that chronic pains can be improved and most back problems can be managed without surgery.

As well as using the Sarah Key Method of treatment, I also hold a Diploma in Sports Massage and am a trained practitioner of Integrated Dry Needling (Acupuncture).
