Tom Dawson - Physiotherapist


Tom is an elite level basketball player with a passion for sport. It was this passion that drove him to study a Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science at the University of Sydney where he focused on strength and conditioning across all populations. Tom returned to USyd for the Masters of Physiotherapy course which he completed in 2011. He was the sole recipient of the Health Networks Australia Physiotherapy Prize for outstanding academic results.

He gathered valuable experience working in Orthopaedics, Rehabilitation and Intensive Care at Nepean Hospital and has continued to expand his knowledge and expertise since joining Leichhardt Sports Physiotherapy in early 2013. Tom has developed a particular interest in the knee, ankle and shoulder joints and has recently begun a hydrotherapy initiative at the Leichhardt Aquatic Centre suitable for all injuries and fitness levels.
