Reece Jones

Physiotherapist


Clinical Pilates Instructor

We have been following Reece’s movements for quite some years now. As an undergraduate student, Reece has been involved in Sports coverage and voluntary physio related work both with our North Curl Curl Physio practice and other local sporting organizations. He has assisted the physios and performed strapping for the Manly Marlins Rugby.

At MGS we always knew that Reece had the makings of an excellent physio, yet our advice was always to go out and get valuable experience in many different areas of Physiotherapy practice and hospital experience before coming and working at MGS. Reece graduated in 2013 completing his Exercise and Sports Science Degree at ACU, and in 2015 completed his Sydney University Masters in Physiotherapy.

He spent a couple of years undertaking Physio Sports Coverage, and was fortunate to get accepted into Royal North Shore Hospital’s Physiotherapy staff program. There he gained invaluable experience and has forged some strong professional relationships with many of Sydney’s leading surgeons and doctors, as well as within the Physiotherapy profession.

Reece is a true Northern Beaches local, having grown up in Mona Vale and continues to live there. MGS Mona Vale has turned out to be a very convenient workplace for him to call home and we are excited to have him on board.

During his Teenage years, Reece spent a lot of time at the Physiotherapist. At the wrath of Rugby and touch football, he had to undergo two ACL knee reconstructions and also hand surgery. His initial interest in Physiotherapy stemmed from how he observed that the Physio’s had so much knowledge of Anatomy and Exercise. He was further intrigued after experiencing the interpersonal nature of their work, and the amount of interaction the physios had with influencing their patients’ well-being and lifestyles. Since having become a Physiotherapist himself, nothing pleases him more than to see the satisfaction a patient gets after being educated about their injury, and the sense of achievement they can get by attending Physio treatment.

Most likely through his own experiences, his areas of special interest seem to be Hands, in particular, shoulder issues and knee issues. Hands are a very specialized area of Physiotherapy, and during his last 6 months and RNSH , he was able to gain lots of valuable experience in their Hand Therapy Clinic and have close associations with the Hand Specialists.

After going through two ACL reconstruction’s in his youth, and not doing the hard work at the physio, he now sees how this can result in re-injury and increase the risk of having to go through the same process again. Working in the hospital system at RNSH has allowed him to see post operative patients day 1, and experience what a patient goes through before they end up in our clinic. He has been able to work closely with Surgeons and understand how they assess musculoskeletal injuries, assess x-rays and treat a variety of conditions. Overall this has allowed him to become a better physio in assessing and treating injuries.

Reece is an extremely motivated individual, always striving to provide his patients with the best service and advice there is to offer. He brings to MGS a specific Evidence-Based Rehabilitation Program designed for knees injuries, especially those Osteoarthritic knees hoping to avoid or prolong a Total Knee Replacement. Reece has regular contact with Orthopaedic Surgeons who value his program and are grateful to be able to offer their patient’s another option before suggesting a surgical approach.

Despite still playing Touch Football with Sydney University, and maintaining an obvious high level of fitness, Reece has hung up his boots for Rugby and nowadays enjoys following the game as a spectator. But his running, swimming, gym work and surfing keep him plenty busy.

Any locals in Mona Vale may spot him having breakie in the Cinque Café in Mona Vale. If he’s not heading up the coast, he may spend his weekends getting along to an AFL or Rugby game, or catching up with friends in the area. Like the rest of us at MGS, any outdoor activity which keeps us fit and ready to partake in the fun stuff is always an option.

Somewhere over the next couple of years, Reece looks forward to exploring some of what Africa has to offer, but in the meantime, MGS Mona Vale is where you’ll find him.
