Jon Luu

“You don't quit playing when you get old, you get old when you quit playing.”

Another newbie gem to the NAKOA Physical Therapy Team is Jon Luu. Born and raised in San Jose, CA, Jon has been an active kid since day one playing all sorts of sports from organized team sports like basketball and volleyball to individual hobbies like skateboarding and snowboarding. Like many athletes, Jon’s time playing sports throughout high school and college led him to sustain injuries of his own which is what sparked his initial passion for physical therapy. His own positive experience with dedicated physical therapists that helped him rehab, recover, and return to the game motivated him to pursue a career in physical therapy, to help other people overcome their injuries and return to doing what they love most.

Jon earned his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from San Jose State University and his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of St. Augustine. Jon utilizes a comprehensive and individualized approach for patient care; combining the use of:

  • Manual therapy
  • Functional training
  • Corrective exercise
  • Patient education

His goal is not just to treat patients, but to educate and help people understand the cause of their injuries so that they can better overcome their obstacles, improve overall wellness, and prevent future injury. Outside of the clinic, Jon can be found playing beach volleyball, watching sports, going camping and off-roading, and spending time with family and friends.
