Since becoming a postural analyst for Cione, the relationship between Jonathan and the head clinician, Tim King, has gone from strength to strength. Tim is dedicated to Jonathan and his journey, and supports him with his biomechanics, myofascial release treatments and orthotic development. CiONE as a brand is also in the prototype stages of custom spikes, to maximise on Jonathan’s impairment. Since taking sabbatical leave from his clinical practice in 2018 to focus solely on athletics, Jonathan still maintains a strong relationship with the CiONE team.
