After leaving high school Dr Jason Perry trained to become a tradesman in cabinet making. Due to the economic downturn in the early 90s and suffering various physical problems from past childhood injuries he found himself no longer enjoying furniture making. Dr Perry decided to enrol in the inaugural Sports Science program at Edith Cowan University where he very much enjoyed the rehabilitation, exercise physiology and biomechanics units. In one of those classes he learnt about various physical therapy techniques for which he seemed to have a skill or knack. To further his knowledge in this area he did a 12 month certification course in remedial massage techniques at a private college.
After five years of intense study at Murdoch University, Dr Perry graduated with honors and began his new career as a Chiropractor! Since graduating Dr Perry has completed extensive training in Neuro Organisation Technique (NOT), Advanced Biostructural (ABC), a technique that specialises in postural correction, as well as both acute and chronic pain syndromes, Sacro-occipital Technique (SOT), Applied Kinesiology, Diversified, Webster Technique (Pregnancy), Trigenics (soft tissue muscle release), Dry Needling and Kinesio taping. He has also attended the Inspiral Paediatric Seminars to advance his skills and techniques in infant and child chiropractic care.
When in practice, Dr Perry’s main concern is to help each individual person and their families to become the best that they can possibly be. This can mean at school, work, during sports or any day- to-day activities that you like to do – even those household chores that have just got to be done!
