Justin Vanderleest

Physiotherapist, FCAMPT

Vanderleest completed his Master’s degree in 2012 and is a fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapists (FCAMPT). With over 10 years experience, Vanderleest believes in using manual therapy to correct biomechanical faults, facilitating healing by correcting the underlying cause of the problem. Analysis of precipitating factors, and patient-specific corrective exercise are hallmarks of his approach, using stretching, strengthening, and neurological retraining to rehabilitate injuries long-term and prevent re-injury.
