About the Chiropractor

Dr Jon Powderly has always had a passion for sport, exercise and health. It was a gymnastics injury as a teenager that first prompted Jon to visit a chiropractor. The impact of this experience led to him becoming a chiropractor himself. After a foray into physical education teaching, then working alongside physiotherapists for 12 months in a large Melbourne hospital. Dr Powderly began studying chiropractic at R.M.I.T. in Melbourne in 1990.
After completing the 5-year full time degree, Dr Powderly graduated in 1995 with the ‘clinical excellence’ award for his work in student clinic. The next 5 years were spent working in over 20 different clinics in 5 different countries. While living in Barcelona, he set up a volunteer clinic in a drug-rehabilitation centre that is still running to this day thanks to the great work of local chiropractors.

In the year 2000, Dr Powderly returned to Australia, and after 2 years of working in a variety of clinics, moved to Canberra to be with his wife, Salena, opening the Canberra Spine Centre in 2002.
