DR ANDREW MCHARDY

B.MedSc, M.Chiro, D.Phil

Drummoyne Clinic

Andrew graduated from Sydney University with a Bachelor of Medical Science and obtained a Masters of Chiropractic from Macquarie University. In addition, Andrew undertook post-graduate university studies and obtained a Graduate Diploma in Chiropractic Paediatrics (children).
Andrew has also completed his doctoral studies on golf injuries (Macquarie University, 2009), which has led him to be an internationally recognised expert on golf injuries.

Andrew has over 18 years of clinical experience, working in private practice with a focus on whole body management of conditions. Andrew has also previously taught at Macquarie University in the areas of orthopaedics, biomechanics and chiropractic skills.  As such, he can draw upon this teaching experience to provide an easy to understand explanation of a patient’s condition and how chiropractic treatment can help.
Andrews area of interest is in managing all aspects of golf injuries – from prevention and conditioning to treatment, once the injury has occurred

Specific golf expertise:

  • PhD in golf injuries
  • 18 years clinical experience treating golfers
  • International author & speaker on golf injuries
  • Titleist Performance Institute certified Medical professional – Level 3 (highest level attainable)
  • Selective Functional Movement Assessment Certified – Level 1
  • Played golf for nearly 30 years- played off as low as a 4 handicap

Andrew has a strong belief that a loss of efficiency of body movements account for the loss of power / distance seen by golfers.
This also results in a loss of consistency and is a predictor for injury. The primary focus is to get the body moving as efficiently as possible during the golf swing. By doing so you are in a position to become more consistent in your golf swing as the movements become more reproducible. This will then assist in preventing injuries, as the movement patterns of your body will align with your golf swing.
