Dr Peter Cowie (Chiropractor)

Although I grew up in Sydney I travelled to Melbourne when I was 17 for five years to attend university to become a chiropractor. When I finished university I worked as an associate in Grafton NSW for 12 months before purchasing Westleigh Chiropractic and moving back to Sydney in November 1983.

Away from Westleigh Chiropractic

I met Debbie, my wife, in the first month after starting practice, she was the best reason for moving back to Sydney from the country. We have three children: Charlotte (34), Harriet (30) and Oscar (26). Their health always amazes me when compared to their friends. I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised as they have all been adjusted since they were a few minutes old!

My working hours let me do a fair bit of the running around for the family and that has been great. I spent three years building a steam engine for a launch that was finally launched in December 2005 and I love spending a day out steaming on the Hawkesbury River.

I was awarded a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in June 2018 for service to the chiropractic profession.

It has been a privilege to serve my profession and a great honour to be recognised for this. I would like to say a big thank you to all of my patients for putting up with various changes in our regular appointment schedule so that I could attend many meetings over the years.
