Dr Toby Barker


 "I love helping people get back to doing what they love"

Toby has experience and enjoys seeing a breadth of patients, from athletes, office workers, expectant mothers, the elderly and everyone in between, although has a particular interest in chronic and persistent pain and rehabilitation. 


He graduated with distinction from the British School of Osteopathy, UK, and was awarded the prizes for overall academic performance in his 2nd, 3rd and final years. He quickly  returned as part of the teaching faculty at the BSO and completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic and Clinical Education, as well as being a visiting lecturer on the Master of Advance Physiotherapy program at the University of Hertfordshire, UK. After 5 years in practice and lecturing, he decided to move to Australia in 2022 for a taste of life down under!

Toby continues to compliment his clinical work with engaging in research and teaching; recently publishing in the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine, co-founding the Illawarra Osteopathic Group, in order to improve regional CPD opportunities for Osteopaths and being asked to sit on the Osteopathy Australia Editorial and Educational Advisory Group, guiding the professional development of osteopaths all over Australia. He is currently undertaking a research mentorship with Osteopathy Australia. 


Where possible, Toby strives to increase provision of osteopathy to those who would not normally have access; previously working with homeless shelters, Syrian refugees and volunteering in orphanages and communities in Indonesia, treating children and adults with disabilities who can't access adequate care, alongside a team of fellow Osteopaths and Physiotherapists. 

In his spare time enjoys the gym, swimming, hiking, rock climbing, salsa and is persisting, albeit it with limited success, at surfing!
