Amanda Wong

Interim Physiotherapist

BKin, MScPT

What is your background & training?

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Kinesiology and a minor in Psychology. Then I moved to Edmonton, where I completed my post-graduate Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta.  I have gained a keen interest in incorporating clinical Pilates into my practice and have since completed both the Calibrate Pilates training as well as the Level I Rehabilitation Stream with STOTT Pilates (Mat and Reformer).

What inspired you to choose this career path?

I was first exposed to physiotherapy in high school when my grandmother had a stroke. She stayed at a rehabilitation hospital where I saw firsthand how physiotherapy improved her strength and function daily, allowing her to reach her goals. That sparked my desire to help others and my curiosity about the human body and biomechanics, which led me to pursue physiotherapy.

Why do you choose to work at Treloar?

I chose to work at Treloar because I want to be a part of a team that values lifelong learning. I want to continually expand my knowledge and work alongside a diverse group of talented therapists who have extensive experience in various areas.

What are you personally passionate about?

I have a passion for helping individuals achieve their goals, empowering them to take on an active role throughout their rehabilitation journey and having fun during the process!

Outside the clinic, I enjoy running, camping, hiking with my dog and volunteering at my local animal shelter.
