Andrea Mendoza was a physiotherapist at Kids Physio Group from 2011 to 2015. During that time, she worked with a few children with scoliosis. As she was a new, keen therapist, she researched further possibilities for training to work with this very complex condition.
In February 2015, Andrea flew down to chilly Milwaukee for the C1 certification course of the Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School. During the 10 intense days of training, her eyes were opened to the world of scoliosis, and she quickly realized how much more information was available beyond her entry-level physical therapy training.
When Andrea returned as a Schroth-Certified Physical Therapist, she realized that many families in British Columbia had been searching for physiotherapists trained in the Schroth Method, and she made the decision to create a company with a team, a space and the infrastructure designed specifically to suit these families’ needs best.
Now with an ever-growing team at the location in Vancouver shared with Kids Physio Group, a satellite clinic in Surrey within Hodgson Orthopedic Group, and another clinic in North Vancouver on the way, The ScoliClinic strives to change the game of conservative scoliosis management in BC by addressing the physical, emotional, and social factors that affect people with scoliosis.
The ScoliClinic is continually evolving to help people with scoliosis stand tall, from the inside out.
