Prior to his career in physical therapy, Justin was a Hip-Hop dancer who performed in Disneyland parades and coached at Tustin High School for their competitive dance team. Throughout his years as a dance teacher, Justin found greater fulfillment in helping his students develop their skills and overcome their individual roadblocks than in pursuing his professional dance career. This realization made Justin aspire to transfer his teaching skills and knowledge of body movement into the field of physical therapy, where he could help dancers and people from all walks of life.</p><p>Justin specializes in hands-on manual therapy and is also a certified Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) provider. He prides himself on being invested in each patient as an individual and adjusting his treatment and temperament to their specific needs. In his spare time, Justin can usually be found spending time with his wife and dog or playing video games.</p> <img src="https://rstheme.com/products/wordpress/bcom/wp-content/uploads/2023/01/rect-shape-large.png" alt="image"/>
