Thom Adcock

Born and raised on the Sunshine Coast, Thom attended Victoria University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science (Clinical Science) and Masters of Health Science (Osteopathy) in 2018. His thesis reviewed the efficacy of injectable therapy for knee osteoarthritis- a developing and ground-breaking field for symptomatic pain relief.

Thomas is a structural osteopath who regularly relies on direct osteopathic techniques. Whilst he offers individualised management, he aims to provide symptomatic relief, improve range of motion restrictions and improve strength/stability. He places a high priority on manual therapy, and time working with a Victorian Football League club and the Ladies Pro Golf Association saw him develop a passion for physical and rehabilitative therapy for athletes and the general population.

Thom is a lover of all sports in particular rugby union and golf. After suffering from hip conditions, resulting in surgery- Thom developed a keen interest in treatment and management of weight bearing joints (foot, ankle, knee, hip, pelvis, spine). Thomas has a strong belief in osteopathic principles; that the body holds all the tools for self-healing, maintenance and regulation- and how osteopathy can assist you in stream lining these healing processes, so that you may restore health and return to your chosen activity as soon as possible.
