Jon graduated in 1988 from La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia and went on to work in private practice with a special interest in low back pain. After completing his Masters and Credentialing in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy he undertook a PhD on the classification of low back pain. Since 2005 Jon has been working in clinical practice and at La Trobe University supervising a number of PhD students leading up to a large (n=300) and recently completed randomised controlled trial. The STOPS Back Pain trials show moderate to large effects for specific physical therapy compared to evidence-based advice. Jon is currently conducting further research on validating the STOPS approach.
