At The ScoliClinic, every decision is framed
by our core values.

Focused Efforts Create Clinical Expertise

For our clients:

  1. Since our company is 100% dedicated to scoliosis and Scheuermann’s Kyphosis, we spend ALL our time thinking about these conditions! We seek to understand deeper levels of scoliosis and SK, and how we can apply new knowledge to treatments. We value continual learning and knowledge sharing
  2. We aim to pass along much of this info to each patient, to empower him/her to advocate for herself

As a team member:

  1. We seek knowledge about scoliosis, appreciate research, and maintain an open mind to any new information presented to us
  2. We play our part in ‘leveling up’ the team by actively engaging in our mentoring program, by attending 5-Fact-Fridays, and by contributing ideas when other physiotherapists need to brainstorm

Awareness – of self, and of others – is key

For our clients:

  1. We create unique connections with each of our clients, to hear their needs, both spoken and unspoken
  2. We appreciate the complexity of scoliosis and how emotional our clients’ journeys may be. By learning more about the role of emotions in, pain management, self-confidence, and treatment plan adherence, we aim to address the patient as a whole, not just a spine

As a team member:

  1. We are aware of our teammates needs and are considerate when making decisions as a team
  2. We value the feedback of other team members to help us see our blind spots and improve upon them
  3. We are aware of our own strengths, emotional triggers, and tendencies through a personal practice of self-awareness. Whether it’s through journaling, meditation, yoga, or something else, we strongly believe that self-reflection and introspection is what develops clinicians to his/her highest potential

We Thrive On Change

For our clients:

  1. We love new ideas and new ventures
  2. We listen closely to patients’ wishes to modify existing services, come up with new ones (yoga, Tri-Cities group class, etc)

As a team member:

  1. We are flexible, adaptable, and understand that change is a necessary ingredient for growth
  2. We challenge status quo, and constantly consider better approaches for management of scoliosis

Everything is Figureoutable

For our clients:

  1. If there is a roadblock to our client’s progress, we work hard to find a solution

As a team member:

  1. We may encounter problems unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, but we remember that we have the capacity to stay cool, learn more, and find a solution
  2. We stay curious, resourceful, and collaborative to find these solutions

We’re A Central Hub

For our clients:

  1. We connect people on different stages of their scoliosis journey with those further down the road; we also connect clients with other clients via group classes and other community activities

As a team member:

  1. We’re a hub for therapists passionate about scoliosis. Each therapist brings a different skillset to the team, and The ScoliClinic is where we exchange those ideas and facilitate the professional growth of our colleagues
