Lee Poston, PT, Diplomat MDT, CSCS
Physical Therapist and Owner
Lee graduated from Tennessee State University in 1994. As a traveling Physical Therapist he arrived in Maui on a 3 month contract in 1997 and simply never left. In 1999, he stumbled upon Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) and his practice was turned upside down. He then “unlearned” everything he had learned while pursuing and attaining his MDT certification in Tucson, Arizona in 2002. Lee’s passion didn’t stop there as he went on to complete the Diploma program via the University of Otago, in New Zealand. He became a certified Diplomat at the McKenzie International Spine Conference in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in 2009. He also built a successful CrossFit business from 2009 -2016 before selling to focus more on his family and his private practice. Due to the great works of Robin McKenzie, Lee is still on fire about MDT. His practice, Therapeutic Associates of Maui is now in its 15th year (as of 2018) and he trains multiple PT students each year to spread the knowledge about MDT.
In 2018, for the second year in a row, Lee headed out to Peru on a Medical Mission with Jason Ward and "Mechanical Care Everywhere." MDT trained clinicians volunteer to treat and train those less fortunate, and give them tools to manage their own injuries. Robin McKenzie was a genius! He realized long ago, that we don't need passive care. We need active patient centered self-management and patients can heal themselves with help from a well-trained MDT clinician!
