Hershal Shah

MPT, BSc, CAFCI

Hershal received his Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) degree from the University of British Columbia in 2015 and joined our team shortly after. Prior to that, he completed his Bachelor of Science "with distinction" from Simon Fraser University, with a major in Biomedical Physiology.

Hershal has continued his education since then, becoming certified in acupuncture (CAFCI) by Acupuncture Canada in 2016 and is currently completing his Advanced Diploma of Manual and Manipulative Therapy. Hershal is skilled in treating acute and chronic pain of the low back, mid back, and neck. Drawing from his own sports injuries, he also has extensive experience treating lower leg conditions involving the knee, ankle, and foot. Hershal utilizes manual therapy and exercise to restore joint mobility, tissue health, and ensure proper movement to prevent re-injury.

Hershal has a keen interest in sports injuries, specifically in basketball, baseball, martial arts, and combat sports. Hershal continues to broaden his scope of practice and plans to pursue certification in intramuscular stimulation (IMS), concussion management, and vestibular rehabilitation. Outside of the clinic, Hershal enjoys weightlifting, running, reading, visiting local craft breweries, and spending time with his family and friends.
