Jonathan completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in New Zealand and has spent the last 13 years working in private practice clinics in New Zealand, Australia and the United Arab Emirates. Now settled in Melbourne with a wealth of overseas experience, he is excited to collaborate with the Kinematics team and share his expertise with his clients.
Having sustained multiple injuries while playing Rugby Union for 25 years, Jonathan has an understanding of the impact injuries can have on your physical and emotional well-being. He capitalises on his firsthand experience to injury and uses this to find common ground with his patients. Jonathan aims to provide a positive environment for his patients to thrive in, by facilitating mindful movement and encouraging confidence in their body’s ability.
A career highlight for Jonathan was working internationally for several years with various world class athletes including tennis players at the ATP and WTA Dubai Tennis Championships, and rugbyplayers at the International Dubai Rugby 7’s. Through applying his knowledge of injury rehabilitation and return to high-level sport, Jonathan has developed a unique and holistic approach for all his clients, regardless of their age or athletic ability.
At Kinematics Strength + Recovery, Jonathan combines manual therapy with exercise prescription to ultimately bridge the gap between injury rehabilitation and the return to optimal performance.
