When I met Laura Patrick, the mastermind behind the physiotherapy group just for kids, I was so happy at how aligned our values and missions are! Kids Physio works to build kids’ confidence, provide a fun/ play environment and advocate for positive change! They are also amazing people with huge hearts and big smiles. I got the opportuntity to see them in action at their studio in Vancouver and I was surprised at how fun their studio is – it is colourful and playful and looks
very little like a regular physio office!!
Laura and Andrea from Kids Physio showed us how toengage our muscles in different stretches and techniques so we could experience what it felt like to use specific parts of our bodies! We played some awesome games and activities too!
My goal for Sole Girls is that we can prevent injuries and bring awareness to our bodies so we
can do what needs to be done BEFORE an injury occurs. Injuries can be defeating mentally as
well as physically. Recovery can be a long process of missed out activities, which could mean social exclusion. If girls understand their bodies and how to listen to their bodies, they can
avoid and treat anxiety, injuries, and dropping physical activities!
Strong bodies equals stronger minds!!
