THE PRACTICE

Our Team
Jonathan (Jono) Harris - Titled Sports & Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist 

Jonathan's qualifications and experience provide him with an exceptional knowledge of physical function and rehabilitation. Jonathan (or Jono if you prefer) is well known for his use of the Sarah Key Method when treating spinal conditions.  Jono is a 'head to toe' practitioner and enjoys the myriad of treatments he provides daily. 

Having participated in sport at state and national levels, Jono's personal experiences led to a desire to study the human body, how it functions, how it responds to different training and treatment stimuli and, most importantly, how it recuperates.

Interestingly, Jono toured the world for 7 years as head physiotherapist to the Australian Olympic Handball Team and has extensive experience in the areas of private practice physiotherapy, sports physiotherapy, occupational rehabilitation, and injury prevention programs.
 

His qualifications, combined with personal experience and continuing education, better assist Jono to prescribe uncomplicated, fun and holistic exercise based rehabilitation programs.
