J Wellington is a graduate from Dalhousie University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology. During his undergraduate he was both a varsity athlete and trainer for the Dalhousie track and field team. As a result of his work with runners he developed an interest in the management of lower leg and foot injuries. Wanting to further his knowledge in biomechanics and injury prevention, J attended the University of Western Ontario obtaining a degree in Pedorthics in 2016 and became a Canadian Certified Pedorthist later that year.
J’s goal as a Pedorthist is to assess posture, movement patterns, and lower-extremity musculoskeletal function and his preferred tool is video gait analysis allowing the ability to visually show patients exactly when & where their imbalances occur. He encourages his patients to participate in their own recovery by taking the time to educate them about footwear choices, at-home tips, stretches and exercises.
Outside of work, J takes to the mountains to camp, hike, and downhill ski. He also enjoys recreational soccer, and spending time with friends.
