accepting kids, teens, and adults
I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age nine. I wore a brace for 3 years until I was told I would require corrective spinal fusion surgery at age 13. After two years on the surgical waitlist, I finally at received the operation at age 15. While I remained active and healthy throughout the course of my treatment, I wasn’t ever aware of options for me to actively participate in my treatment.
I discovered the work of The ScoliClinic while I was completing my Master of Physical Therapy Program at UBC, which completely changed my understanding of scoliosis treatment. I want to help the next generation of teenagers with scoliosis, so joining the team was a natural next step.
My work at The ScoliClinic is supported by the following certifications:
- Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School – Basic Course – November 2020
- UBC Master of Physical Therapy, 2020
- Orthopedic Divisions – Advanced Integrated Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Level 1 – June 2020
