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.

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.
Director of Operations
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.

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.
