Jack is a physiotherapist who loves all things sports and exercise, graduating with a Master of Physiotherapy at The University of Sydney in 2019 and joined YSP straight away. Jack loves to learn, furthering his education by becoming a Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Jack loves being active having played rugby league and union, cricket, AFL, touch football and oz-tag over the years. Currently, his exercise passions lay with semi-regularly hacking up a golf course and attempting to complete his first triathlon!
He has also had his fair share of injuries, including a reconstructed ACL, two shoulder surgeries, torn calves and multiple low back pain episodes – so he understands firsthand the dedication and focus required for the rehabilitation of both sporting injuries and pain.
Jack loves to keep up to date with the latest evidence, discussing treatment plans with his clients and did we mention, exercise? Growing up in Maroubra he believes in two things; 1. You will never regret an ocean swim and 2. The Roosters will forever be in our shadow!
Jacinta is an all-rounder physio with a particular interest in exercise-based rehabilitation. She completed her Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree at the University of Canberra in 2020, and moved to Sydney to commence her career. She has since fallen in love with the local beaches, and as the locals say “you never regret a swim!”.
Jacinta is passionate about all kinds of physical activity and loves working with a range of people including those who play sports, go to the gym, run, swim, do pilates, and the humble weekend warrior! She loves all kinds of training, but has a special interest in pilates, strength training, and swimming. Jacinta also has a keen interest in sport, especially AFL and netball. As much as she doesn’t love seeing people get injured, Jacinta loves to support her clients through all aspects of their rehabilitation journey, getting them back to 110% so they can smash it on the court or field!
Jacinta’s philosophy as a physiotherapist is to support her clients to optimise their health and wellbeing, and become the very best version of themselves. You can catch Jacinta around the clinic, usually in either the kitchen (food is fuel!) or up in the gym running her pilates and strength classes!

He has a deep love for sports, having played rugby league, union, soccer, golf, cricket, hockey, tennis and athletics, and has a love for rehab having injured himself at least once in each of those sports.
At this stage in his physio journey, Daniel does not have a specific physiotherapy study he wishes to focus on and as such hopes to observe and learn to assess/manage any injury that he comes across. He loves talking to people and always tries his best to create a positive and comfortable atmosphere for those around him. Although, it is hard at times when you are a firm supporter of the Doggy’s (Bulldogs).
