Dr Philip Nolan


Bachelor Business Management & Marketing, Bachelor Applied Science (Clinical Science), Bachelor Osteopathic Science, Justice of the Peace (Qual), Member of the Australian Osteopathic Association

Phil’s passion regarding allied health was born out of his love of sport.

He competed at a high level in swimming in his early years in Cairns and then progressed to representing the region in basketball.

Having played most sports including rugby league, rugby union, surf lifesaving, and martial arts, Phil sustained the normal array of sporting injuries.

Through his training, injuries and questioning what worked Phil began to develop an understanding and fascination of the human body and of injury management and prevention.
