WS+EMC Since: 2024

Jason is a Titled APA Sports and Exercise Physiotherapist, who has worked in private practice, workplace injury and sports since graduating with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Honours) in 2007, and subsequently completing a Master of Sports Physiotherapy in 2018. Jason’s primary clinical interests are assessment, rehabilitation, and prevention of injuries to the lower limb including hip, knee and ankle joint injuries, muscle strains, tendinopathies, and bone stress injuries. These interests and skills stem from playing Australian rules football and working with football (soccer) athletes. He has also always been interested in shoulder injuries.

Jason is a retired Australian rules footballer (it’s a fun game, but you can’t play it forever), and presently enjoys swimming, lifting weights, the occasional run or bike ride, and a good book. He has also been known to enjoy free diving, skiing and camping.
