Justin graduated from Western University with a Master in Physiotherapy. A serious interest in rehabilitation sciences first began when as a teenager, he witnessed his grandfather recuperate from a slip and fall injury. He went from wheelchair bound to regaining his walking independence while at a neurological physiotherapy centre. Justin has also suffered numerous sport-related physical setbacks, including a severe low back injury during weightlifting that led him towards his own physiotherapy-led recovery.
Combining experience, knowledge and compassion, Justin can help guide you through your personal physical rehab and wellness goals. He approaches musculoskeletal and neurological conditions uniquely — applying fundamental and advanced techniques of physiotherapy while prioritizing functional mobility and strength at the forefront of the rehabilitation process. He has a special interest in spinal, shoulder and postural related injuries.
Justin enjoys staying active through weight training, snowboarding, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. You also might find him at a local tennis court working on his rally.
