Jonathon pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology at Queen’s University. While at Queen’s, he was part of a team of undergraduate and graduate students conducting research on the physiological adaptations that occur with sport, high-intensity interval training and structured physical exercise. Their research was published in The European Journal of Applied Physiology. To gain experience in the field of sports therapy, Jonathon worked as a trainer for the Men’s Varsity hockey team for two years. With his exposure to concussions in sport, Jonathon has focused his continuing education on Clinical Neurosciences through the Carrick Institute to better understand assessment, diagnosis and functional rehabilitation of the brain. Dr. Ted Carrick was instrumental in Sidney Crosby’s return to play after he sustained his concussions in 2011.
After completing his undergraduate degree, Jonathon continued his education by pursuing a four-year Doctorate of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) in Toronto. While at CMCC, he interned at Endeavor Sports Performance in New Jersey to better understand the program design and practical applications of strength and conditioning for athletes at an elite/professional level.
His professional expereince includes working with athletes from Athletics Canada Track and Field, University of Toronto Sprints and Hurdles, OVA, OTA, Tennis Canada, NCAA, CIS, GTHL, OJHL, NHL.
Jonathon uses a functional approach to his assessment of the neuro-musculoskeletal systems, and a combination of manual therapy techniques, exercise, and education to help his patients reach their health and wellness goals.
