Lam completed his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at Dalhousie University in 2014. He then returned to Vancouver where he worked as a clinical kinesiologist specializing in active rehab. He also volunteered in Vietnam at a rehab hospital and specifically worked with patients suffering from stroke, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and children with disabilities. After the experiences he gained working as a clinical kinesiologist and volunteering abroad, Lam decided to obtain a Masters in Physical Therapy at UBC. He holds a Level 2 Orthopaedic Manual Therapy certification with future goals of pursuing further levels. He is also functional dry needling certified (IMS). Since working as a physio at a golf facility (Tsawwassen Springs), Lam has developed a passion for golf and has since acquired the Level 1 and 2 Medical Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Certifications. Being TPI Medical 2 certified gives Lam the knowledge to assess and successfully treat golf related injuries.
Lam has grown up playing football and basketball. He coached his old high school (St. Thomas More Collegiate) JV football team to win a provincial championship in 2014. Outside the clinic, Lam frequently plays golf, hockey and enjoys training for endurance sports. He has completed the BMO half marathon (2019), Seek the Peak Race (2019) and has goals of finishing a triathlon. Whether you are looking to physically prepare your body to return to sports or rehabbing an injury for daily living, Lam is able to help, working with patients of all ages and injuries.
