The Top 5 Reasons I Love Being a Physiotherapist by Jared Munitz


Hi, my name is Jared Munitz and I am a physiotherapist who graduated from the Australian Catholic University. After completing my degree, I worked at St George Hospital where I gained experience as a physiotherapist in various clinical areas including Aged Care, Intensive Care, Respiratory, Neurology and Orthopaedics. I was also fortunate enough to have the experience of a rural secondment to Broken Hill Hospital, where I worked as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist.

I have a strong passion for sport and live an active lifestyle. As a result I have a particular interest in managing sports related injuries and musculoskeletal conditions. I have previously worked with sporting teams including Northern Tigers FC who compete at a representative level in NSWPL2. Whilst working with the club for over 3 years, I gained valuable experience in injury prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for all age groups. 

Many people ask me, why do you love being a physiotherapist? Here are my top 5 reasons:

  1. The Client Outcome

Being a physiotherapist offers the opportunity for a challenging yet very rewarding and satisfying career. I enjoy helping my clients achieve their goals, whether it is returning to work, the sports field or simply easing their pain. Seeing both the positive physical and psychological impact that I can have on peoples lives reinforces the importance of my profession. 

  1. Holistic and Person-Centred Approach

I enjoy being able to educate and support my clients to take an active role in their own rehabilitation and recovery. Through effective two-way communication, I focus on developing an understanding about each client and their varied circumstances, which allows for an individualised treatment approach.  

  1. Continued Learning and Development 

Physiotherapy is a profession that is constantly evolving as we focus on implementing the latest evidence-based practice. I have always enjoyed reading new research articles or listening to podcasts on the way to work. With endless learning opportunities, my mind is always stimulated with new information.

  1. No two days are the same 

I love working with people of all ages, and treating a broad range of health conditions. This keeps my role exciting and interesting knowing that each day is different, as you never know who will step into your clinic room and with what condition they may present with. 


  1. Working within a multidisciplinary team

I am a team player and enjoy working together with other physiotherapists and cross colaborating with various other health professionals including doctors and exercise physiologists. Multidisciplinary teams are important to deliver comprehensive care and each member plays a valuable role in improving the clients health and wellbeing. Here at Excel, we also offer remedial massage therapy, Pilates and yoga plus a large range of health and wellbeing products.  Our approach is client centred and focused and we work together to achieve the very best outcomes for our patients. I look forward to being of assistance to you at the practice soon.
