Meet the Team

At Axon Rehab we believe in the power of teamwork. That's why we have brought together a strong team to provide you with a diverse spectrum of experience. Each patient will complete an initial assessment which will help us develop the appropriate rehab program to suit your needs and goals. You will be brought through your rehab program, all under the watchful eye of our Clinical Lead.

So let's meet the team!
