Justin Mah is a Physical Therapy resident and a recent graduate from the MScPT program at the University of Toronto. He also holds a Honours Bachelor of Science from Western University in Medical Science.
There are two fundamental values that led Justin to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. The first, Justin believes that movement restores functionality - not just physical functionality, but mental, emotional, and social functionality. The second, Justin believes that exercise is medicine: exercise is akin to an over-the-counter drug that is accessible to anyone of all ages and is an effective treatment for many chronic conditions that are prevalent in our society today. These core values have also led Justin to create an educational platform on Instagram with his colleagues, Art of Mobility (@artofmobility), to inspire and educate people to move purposely through exercise and life.
Justin is particularly interested in manual therapy and is looking to tie these hands-on techniques with his proactive approach to rehab to empower clients to physically and mentally get back to doing what they love to do. Justin believes the body works as an entire system, and thus, believes that a person should be treated as a whole, rather than only the symptoms they present with. When he’s not in the clinic, Justin loves to practice what he preaches by weightlifting at the gym, learning yoga, and running outside in the city
