Jonathan Stakos graduated from Deakin University with a Bachelor of Health Sciences before completing a Masters of Occupational Therapy at Swinburne University.
During University, Jonathan studied a variety of health related fields, including human anatomy and nutritional sciences. He also has clinical experience working in mental health, where he developed strategies to help older adults with psychological illnesses find purpose and meaning in their daily lives.
Jonathan developed a passion for hand therapy during his final clinical placement at University. He believes this passion grew from his interest in the anatomy of the upper limb and seeing the direct impact that hand therapy can have on someone’s life.
Jonathan strives to help patients return to their pre-injury level, whether at work, sports or anything important to them. Jonathan particularly enjoys staying up to date with the latest hand therapy research and developing tailored rehabilitation programs for his patients.
Outside work, you’ll find Jonathan on the tennis court representing his local club and barracking passionately for his beloved Richmond Tigers in the AFL. Luckily for Action Rehab, Jonathan’s tennis career peaked at the age of 9, when he was pictured in a Melbourne Weekly magazine among the next generation of tennis stars. This was not meant to be, and Jonathan now dedicates his time to Action Rehab, supporting people to overcome their upper limb injuries.
