About Tom McMullen
Tom has been an Osteopath & Physical Therapist for the past 20 years and practices from his own clinic based in his home town of Dunbar East Lothian.
He moved into this line of work after serving in the Army as a musician and medical assistant for 6-1/2 years.
After receiving a diploma in Remedial Massage and Advanced remedial massage from the Northern Institute in Blackpool, he studied Sports Injuries for two years at Lillishall - the Football Associations National Rehabilitation Centre - where he received diploma in the treatment of sports injuries.
Tom had been involved in Football and Rugby at both amateur and professional level. His skills were put to good use when he worked as part of the medical team for the Scotland International Rugby squad for 6-1/2 years. During this time he travelled with the national squad to Argentina in 1994, South Africa in 1995 (for the World Cup) and New Zealand in 1996.
In 1995 he decided to stop his globe-trotting and establish his own Physiotherapy and Osteopathic Clinic. However, he had always had a keen interest in horses and had worked with them for several years in his younger days. He wanted to expand his horizons and combine his treatment skills with his interest in horses.
He enrolled in a 10 month course on Animal Osteopathy run by Stuart McGregor, the world famous Equine Osteopath, and successfully completed this course to become a qualified Equine Osteopath.
