He takes a strong hands-on manual therapy biased approach to musculoskeletal, occupational and sports injuries, and uses a variety of skills including; spinal mobilisation, dry needling, trigger point and myofascial therapy, biomechanical-postural assessment and correction, exercise rehabilitation and orthotics prescription.

Ken’s high school teacher noted his passion for human biology and movement, his skills in sports, and recommended that he looked into a career of physiotherapy. Since then, Ken has achieved his dream of graduating from Curtin University and becoming a physiotherapist – working in musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy.
His approach to physiotherapy utilises all of the available resources, using a combination of manual therapy (massage, mobilisations and dry needling), taping, orthotics prescription, exercise and education to help people achieve their goals.
Ken has a strong focus on involving clients in their recovery and believes that the whole person needs to be treated, not just the injury.
“Meeting my clients and understanding their journey is my favourite thing about being a physio. I love how the same injury can present drastically different from one person to another – as this keeps me on my toes.”
Over the years of working in private practice, Ken has excelled in managing a wide range of injuries and has developed a strong interest in treating tendon issues, ACL injuries and persistent pain. Known for his collaborative approach to healthcare, he regularly touches base with other members of the client’s management team and isn’t afraid of getting a second opinion if the recovery is not tracking as expected.
He has completed additional clinical training courses in dry needling, advanced mobilisation techniques, motivational interviewing, ACL management and spinal and shoulder pain.
In his downtime, Ken enjoys spending time with his partner, staying fit at the gym and passionately supporting his soccer team. His career goals for the future is to develop his skills and knowledge in the field of paediatrics and work towards a post graduate Masters in Physiotherapy.

After studying sports science at The University of Western Australia in 2011, Jubilee completed his physiotherapy degree at Curtin University where he showed a keen interest in paediatrics in his final year placement. As a result of original yoga stories that he wrote and used as an innovative treatment tool for his young patients, he was awarded the APA Paediatric Physiotherapy Student of the Year 2017.
“I always wanted to work in a hands on role and also have a way of seeing the best in people even if they don’t see it themselves. I wanted to use these traits in conjunction with my role as a group fitness instructor to empower people to be their best selves. Physiotherapy enables me to combines all of these.”
Since graduating, Jubilee has combined his keen interests in human movement with his clinical skills as a physiotherapist to work in private practice physiotherapy, treating a wide variety of musculoskeletal presentations. He especially enjoys working with those who suffer from gym or exercise related restrictions, educating his clients on optimising lifestyle factors to reduce pain and treating spine related presentations such as low back pain or neck conditions.
“I like being able to interact with people all day. I love that though these interactions I am able to change someone’s day or week and tangibly improve their quality of life. This makes it more than a job to earn money – it’s fulfilment for me as an individual.”
Jubilee also undertakes a leadership role in the group fitness community as a Body Balance instructor, and having been involved for many years as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer, he is able to fully understand common gym-related injuries.
Jubilee is currently working on a children’s yoga picture book aimed at kids aged 2-8 to introduce them to mindfulness practice and freedom of expression through movement. He also spends his free time in the ocean, 4WDing or camping as much as he can in the summer!
