Jason has completed a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) at Curtin University.
Having a passion for sport, Jason has been involved in Surf Life Saving, swimming, and AFL from an early age. This has lead to various involvements within different sports, including trainer at Quinns Districts Amateur Football club since 2012, and physiotherapist at 2 halfs Football development. As a result, Jason has a sound knowledge of acute sporting injuries and their associated rehabilitation requirements, from the perspective of both the physiotherapist, and the athlete.
Whether an injury occurred on or off the sporting field, Jason has a keen interest in the application of movement screening and functional assessment on all individuals. Use of this diagnostic tool promotes a tailored treatment approach, guards against re-injury or reoccurrence of pain, and facilitates a long term and lasting benefit from physical therapy.
Jason is dedicated to professional development and strives to continue delivering treatment that is current and patient centred.

Seb graduated from Curtin University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy). Throughout his studies he was playing WAFL football for the West Perth Falcons. During this time, he noticed a gap between the injury management and performance optimisation training systems which seemed illogical. Since graduating he has been searching for a way to bridge this gap while working in Australia and abroad. This lead him down the path of movement assessment and active rehabilitation, with targeted manual therapy to assist people to move better which helps with both their pain and performance.
Seb has a special interest in how the hip, lower back and shoulder interact in movement, and pain in these areas. He believes that improvements in movement quality result in far reaching improvements in health outcomes.
