Dr Thomas Black


Hey there! I'm Dr. Tom Black, the chiropractor behind Stride Chiropractic. My path to chiropractic care didn't follow the usual route; it started on the football field, where I was no stranger to injuries. This led me to the world of chiropractic care and rehabilitation, opening my eyes to a whole new perspective on health.

I realised that many of my injuries were self-inflicted, stemming from training mistakes, mismanaged loads, and neglecting key lifestyle factors like proper sleep and nutrition. It was during these times of recovery that my fascination with chiropractic care sparked, along with a passion to guide others through their health journeys and help them sidestep the missteps I made.

I'm all about doing things a bit differently. With a Masters of Clinical Chiropractic with Distinction and currently diving into a Masters in Exercise Science. It's not just about cracking backs; I'm all about blending hands on chiropractic with tailored exercises.

My journey has led me to incredible experiences, such as working with some of our country’s top athletes on the Australasian PGA TOUR as a member of the medical team. Working closely with athletes, physiotherapists and sports doctors has been an invaluable experience. It's these experiences that are the foundation of my approach at Stride Chiropractic, enabling me to offer care that is not only effective but also deeply personalised – focusing on your goals, your journey, and your well-being
