Robert Ong Physiotherapist

Rob graduated with first class honours from the University of Sydney. As a student, he spent most of his free time working with the Balmain Tigers AFL team. Since graduating, he has spent time at Westmead Rehabilitation Hospital before following his passion for musculoskeletal physiotherapy into private practice.

Due to his own personal experiences with long-term neck and back pain, Rob has a passion for helping individuals with chronic and persistent pain conditions. Robert understands the burden and disability that can arise from such conditions, which has led him to his training in clinical pilates for the management of persistent pain. His history as a competitive tennis player and rock climber has also provided him the experience to create pilates programs for athletes as well.

Rob focuses mostly on rock climbing as his main sport, and has a keen interest in the treatment and management of rock climbing and hand/wrist injuries. He also enjoys working with children and teenagers as it allows him to let his inner child out.

Rob also enjoys various forms of exercise, ranging from yoga and pilates to rock climbing and even weight lifting.

When he’s not working, you can normally find Rob rock climbing or buying plants (another little obsession of his).
