Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology, Australian Catholic University
Jason completed his Masters of Exercise Physiology at Australian Catholic University, where he found his passion for neurological rehabilitation. He began working at Advance Rehab Centre in 2014 and helped to establish and grow the Exercise Physiology department to meet the needs of clients needing this service.
Jason has a passion for sport and is an advocate for the vast benefits that sport and recreation can have in rehabilitation. As a result, he has developed ARC’s Beach Access Days as well as the ARC Cycle Club with the goal of improving patient outcomes in a safe and enjoyable environment that differs from traditional rehabilitation.
One of Jason’s career goals is to introduce and assist patients in accessing the wide range of adapted sport and recreational activities that are available. He hopes that this will improve the quality of life of his patients while showing what is truly achievable when living with a disability.
Jason enjoys working with all neurological and complex conditions and has a particular interest in Parkinson’s disease. He is focused on continuing to improve his knowledge and skills in the neurological rehab realm in order to build a large tool kit of rehabilitation techniques such as Nordic Walking; of which he is a qualified instructor.
He is available to see patients in the ARC clinic as well as patients’ homes or local gyms in the Northern Beaches. “What I enjoy the most about neuro rehab isbeing able to give patients the steering wheel to control their own condition; our job as therapists is simply to guide and assist the patient to achieve the goals that they have defined”.
In 2020 Jason won the Anne-Maree Neal Innovation Award as voted for by his colleagues.
