Jack graduated from the University of South Australia in 2015 and spent his first two years of clinical work on the Yorke Peninsula in private practice. In this time Jack was exposed to a wide variety of conditions and presentations and developed a special interest in exercise based rehabilitation and especially how this relates to overcoming chronic conditions and pain. He has a passion for educating patients on why they are in pain and what can be done about it and believes that education is one of the most important roles of a physiotherapist.
Post-surgical rehabilitation has always been a strong area of interest for Jack and getting his patients back doing what they love is a big part of why he is a physio. After recently completing his own rehab he has a new found understanding of what is required to get from the operating room back to the sporting field.
While Jack loves to get people moving and lifting in his hydrotherapy and gym classes he also is able to call upon his dry needling, soft tissue massage and joint manipulation and mobilisation skills to aid in the rehabilitation process. Using a well-rounded and evidence-based approach to his clinical work Jack is able to optimise outcomes for his patients.
In his spare time Jack plays football for the Payneham Norwood Union Football Club and loves to get down south for a surf when he can.
