Mojo SportClinic’s mission is to make Sports Therapy as easy as a haircut.
We use advanced Physical Therapy and Sports Therapy techniques to heal, educate and empower athletes at all levels. Mojo SportClinic’s methodology focuses on Active Healing, allowing you to take control of your pain and the healing process, without putting you on the bench for weeks or months.
We serve walk-in customers during extended hours, with no appointment required. We do not require referrals, and we do not require insurance. In short, we are doing something entirely new and different here.
For over 25 years, our Chief Therapist, Jon Duplessis, has treated thousands of patients. Jon’s personal athletic achievements include competing for South Africa’s national wrestling team, as well as extreme levels of running, bicycling, swimming, and kite boarding. Through the years Jon has personally experienced elite athletic achievement, along with injuring every body part imaginable.
As Chief Therapist, Jon guides Mojo SportClinic’s methods of diagnosis and treatment. His training includes advanced Physiotherapy at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. He has studied under David Butler, internationally renowned author and Director of Neuro Orthopedic Institute. Jon has received certification in the McKenzie method of mechanical diagnosis and treatment of thoracic spine and ribs. He has completed Silver-Coach’s certification through USA Wrestling, as well as First Responder certification through the American Red Cross. Jon has traveled extensively as Sports Therapist with the United States Wrestling Team, healing their hurting bodies at critical international wrestling competitions in Chile, Denmark, Croatia, and Uzbekistan.

Together with Jon’s passion and experience, Mojo SportClinic is the result of the entrepreneurial drive of Alan Neveu, our Executive Director. For over 20 years, Alan has focused on founding and leading Software-as-a-Service software companies. He worked as Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of two enterprise software companies, architected their technical solutions, and grew the companies to successful outcomes for all involved.
During late 2018, Alan was being treated by Jon Duplessis for a serious case of tennis elbow, and the two began talking about the need for a new movement in Sports Therapy and Physical Therapy. After months of talking, thinking and strategizing, Mojo SportClinic was launched in July of 2019. Here at Mojo, Alan brings the same management style and people-centric company culture that is proven to be so successful in software startups, creating a positive environment for employees and customers alike.
Accompanying Jon through all his years of studies, competition, training, and certification, Louise Duplessis, has seen it all. Louise serves as Mojo SportClinic’s Director of Operations and guides all the necessary aspects of the business. She possesses keen insights into efficient business execution, combined with a deep understanding of the business of Physical Therapy. After 20+ years of running and growing multiple Physical Therapy, Orthopedic and physician practices, she possesses a proven track record of designing effective and efficient healthcare business processes. Louise has been personally responsible for creating environments that have seen patients achieve amazing and life-changing healing while ensuring their path to recovery is unhindered by burdensome regulatory and financial rules.
Louise’s experience as an operator of multiple practices across several healthcare disciplines uniquely empowers her to bring the vision of Mojo SportClinic to fruition. She has seen the difficulties placed upon clinics by insurance companies that are near impossible to work with. She has seen unnecessary payment rejections take place over and over again, which places healthcare providers in difficult situations. Here at Mojo SportClinic, Louise guides the team into operational excellence by her untiring attention to detail, combined with her commitment to the vision of making Sports Therapy as easy as a haircut.
