Jorden
Physiotherapist
B. Physiotherapy

Having earned his Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree from Charles Sturt University in Albury in 2005, Jorden has actively pursued professional development areas since. Keeping his finger on the pulse of the latest physiotherapy research allows Jorden to provide a richness in physio-based advice and information and the most up-to-date treatments available to allow a timely resolution of your problems. With more than 10 years of sports and private practice experience, he believes a clear diagnosis and education surrounding a set of problems is paramount to successful management. He is very keen to give his patients the tools required to maintain their symptom free state and to build on these to ensure symptom-free recreational pursuits!

Jordan was the Bendigo VFL side’s physiotherapist for 2 years running, and continues to maintain close ties with specialist physiotherapists. As a keen runner and gym attendee, Jorden knows the pleasures of the pursuit of fitness and also knows first-hand how it feels to be unable to participate in your health and leisure interests, and therefore works hard to get you where you would much rather be – symptom free!
