Jon grew up in Victoria and began his academic journey at Camosun College where he played on the men’s basketball team, and qualified for the National Championships. He went on to complete a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science at UVic and a Masters degree in Physical Therapy at UBC.
He has over 8 years of clinical experience and since moving back to the island in 2017 has been voted Runner-Up for the Campbell River Mirror Reader’s Choice ‘Best Physiotherapist’ award 2 years running. In addition to his clinical experience he has also served as a rugby team therapist at the club, university, provincial, and national levels.
Jon is passionate and committed to research-driven rehabilitation. He has served as a Clinical Educator for the UBC Physical Therapy program, has completed a number of post-graduate courses, and is certified in Functional Dry Needling (IMS). He believes that treatment is an active, not a passive process, and chooses to focus on what you can do rather than what you can’t.
He is particularly interested in sports injuries, strength and conditioning, ACL and other post-op rehabilitation, running injuries and video running gait analysis; however, he is excited to work with anyone who is motivated to invest time and energy into fixing their problems.
In his free time you will find him hanging with his wife and new baby girl, out on the trails with his dog Cooper or hitting the slopes when the snow is good.
