Has worked in private practice ever since where he has become adept at treating athletes with sporting injuries, particularly football and basketball. Currently Jacob is the physiotherapist for the Ballarat Basketball Miners and Rush teams, where he works at home games and trains with both professional and semi-professional athletes. On weekends Jacob still plays for the Lake Wendouree Football Club, works closely with the Sebastopol Football Club and has experience in TAC Cup under 18s. In the clinic, Jacob regularly sees local runners for gait analysis and running retraining. Jacob has a special interest and a wealth of experience in assessing and rehabilitating knee pain, ACL injuries and acute ankle and hamstring injuries. Through further training he has become adept at using dry needling and teaching Pilates. Jacob is also a certified level 1 strength and conditioning coach which greatly compliments his detailed rehabilitation programs.
...and a little more!
In the past Jacob has competed and trained in muay thai and kickboxing, both locally and in Thailand. When the weather is right Jacob spends his time on the coast surfing and takes every opportunity he can to travel overseas. His favourite destinations are Iceland for the scenery and Japan for the ramen.
