B.H.K., MScPT, CAFCI, FDN/IMS

Andrea completed her Bachelor’s degree in Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia, followed by her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy at Queen’s University.  In addition to physiotherapy, Andrea is also certified to perform acupuncture and is certified in IMS.  Additionally, Andrea has completed Level 3 of the prestigious Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy program.

Andrea’s interest in physiotherapy began while spending considerable time rehabilitating her own sports injuries when growing up.  After personally experiencing the benefits of physiotherapy, Andrea became motivated to help others experience these same benefits.

Andrea has a variety of interests and clinical experience including sports, orthopaedics, workplace injuries, injuries caused from motor vehicle accidents, arthritis, osteoporosis, pre/post surgical rehabilitation, and helping those suffering from back and neck pain.  Andrea has a particular interest in running injuries – having taken numerous post-graduate courses in the treatment of these injuries.  Andrea is constantly taking additional training in other areas too – to date, Andrea has taken courses in therapeutic taping, cervical spine articular dysfunctions, and the Mulligan concept.

Andrea’s sport involvement includes working with the Richmond Roadrunner’s lacrosse team, the 2012 BC Summer games, the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championships at Softball City, Earl Marriott Football, and Americas Masters Games.  Andrea has also given presentations to local running groups on injury prevention and performance.

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: March 11, 2022

Please note: The Provincial Government has removed the mask mandate for public spaces in BC.  Inside our clinic, we are requiring masks to be worn in common areas.  This is because a sizeable portion of our patients are elderly, immunocompromised, or in the highest risk levels.  Part of our responsibility as healthcare professionals is ensuring all patients have access to care – therefore we have a responsibility to ensure our environment is safe for everybody.  However, once you are inside a treatment room, masks can be taken off with mutual consent between a patient (yourself), and therapist.  This means if you want your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If both you and your therapist would like to remove your masks, you may.  We think this is a compromise which can accommodate nearly everybody.

Just a reminder, despite COVID-19 cases declining in BC, there is still community transmission.  This means there is at least some risk of COVID-19 transmission at our clinic.

NEW: We have installed HEPA air purifiers inside each of our treatment rooms to further try to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
