Jun Zhu Zhang earned his degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy with Honors from Columbia University, completing an Advanced Orthopedic Track. As a native New Yorker, Jun graduated Magna Cum Laude from Skidmore College, receiving a Bachelors of Science degree in Health and Exercise Sciences. After Skidmore, Jun worked at NYSportsMed/Orthology as a PT Aide, assisting patients in their rehabilitation journey. It was here that his passion for helping others grew along with the knowledge that the application of evidence based techniques led to better, faster results.
Jun became a physical therapist to play a vital part in patient journeys towards health and wellness. He believes that living a healthy life and making health conscious decisions are not always easy, rather they take time, practice, diligence and consistency. This thought process translates similarly to many injuries, aches and pains. He strives to reach both short and long term goals by easing each patient’s unique concerns and helping them to understand their injury at all levels– emotional, intellectual, and musculoskeletal.
Friends and family describe him as “positive,” and there is no doubt his patients would say the same. Jun’s “can-do” optimism, aptitude for problem solving, and unshakeable determination make him pivotal in a therapeutic setting.
As Jun states, “I believe that it is up to me to help guide you, and for you to make the decisions and put in the effort. Full function is restored by inspiring confidence that they will get back to doing the things they love.” Jun continues to be a fierce advocate for every patient’s overall fitness, knowing that being active is the real path toward lifelong good health.
