He has completed courses in the manual therapy divisions, Mackenzie courses, Selective Functional movement assessment (SFMA) and Functional Movement Screens.

He is also trained in Functional Capacity Evaluations to help determine impairments with screening and in-clinic testing to help guide recovery and return to safe work.
When he is not at work, you are most likely to find Justin pursing one of his various hobbies including beef farming, spending time outdoors, hunting, fishing, or boating, to name a few.
