Certified in Scoliosis Schroth Treatment

Practitioner, Teacher, Lecturer, Educator in Canada, US, Europe, SE Asia

Andrea Lebel has been a practicing Physiotherapist since 1982, treating patients of all ages from all over Canada with a variety of back problems, Scoliosis and Hyperkyphosis as well as Postural dysfunctions. Having Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) herself as a teenager, Andrea underwent conservative treatment in Europe, and has a deep understanding of what teenagers and their families go through when initially diagnosed. She treats all ages, including Early Onset Scoliosis, AIS, and Adult Scoliosis. 


She was the first Schroth Certified Physiotherapist in Canada and opened the first fully equipped Schroth Physiotherapy Clinic in Ottawa in May 2008. Her personal success with conservative management of Scoliosis reinforced her goal to enhance non-surgical physiotherapy methods for scoliosis rehabilitation.


Andrea has over 35 years of clinical and hospital experience in all aspects of physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and exercise in orthopedics, geriatrics, and sports injuries. Her continuing education and research is now focused on scoliosis, kyphosis, back disorders, and posture correction.
