Tom Eather

Senior Physiotherapist

APA Physiotherapist
Doctor of Physiotherapy – Melbourne University
B. Ex Sc – Wollongong University
Titleist Performance Institute Certified

Growing up in a large sporting family, the competitive streak was well and truly ingrained in me from an early age. This competitive drive and a love of all things sport led to the inevitable injuries throughout the years. It was when having physio treatment for a back injury suffered snowboarding that I began to think that physiotherapy could be the career for me.

I began studying a Bachelor of Exercise Science at the University of Wollongong, while working as a personal trainer and coach at a local gym. After graduating, I moved on to study the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne while working as personal trainer. The combination of a B. ExSc and years of experience in the fitness industry helped to focus my interest on exercise and movement rehabilitation, and this is still a focus of mine today.

Having the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives, and to enable them to continue to do what makes them happy, is the reason I am a physiotherapist. I am committed to utilising the latest evidence to getting you back to doing what you love to do and optimising your rehabilitation to achieve your goals.

Lachie, a native of Orange, NSW, grew up participating in a variety of sports including rugby union, cricket, touch football, golf and water skiing. As he entered high school, he chose rugby union as his sport of choice. He played at a high level throughout his time in high school, which resulted in a move to Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs to play. However, rugby’s physical nature often results in injuries, and Lachie spent a lot of time with club physiotherapists. This experience sparked an interest in musculoskeletal and sports physio.

Today, Lachie has an interest in sports rehab and performance. He employs a combination of hands-on treatment and exercise prescription, along with the most up-to-date evidence, to help his patients achieve their rehab goals. Lachie’s approach to rehab is engaging and fun, and he works tirelessly to ensure that his patients have the best possible experience.

Outside of the clinic, Lachie works with the physio team at the NSW Waratahs senior men’s and women’s squads. He is also the current physiotherapist for the under 18 Generation Blue NSW Waratahs team, where he is responsible for diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and return to performance of the squad. Additionally, Lachie has worked with a variety of sports teams, including the Italian Rugby League team, Western Suburbs Magpie, NSW/ACT AFL Umpires, Colleagues Rugby Union Club, and the South Sydney Rabbitohs Pathway squads. Lachie has also visited the Red Bull Athlete Performance Centre in Salzburg, Austria, where he worked with some of Red Bull’s top athletes.
