Welcome message from site

Port Coquitlam, known as "The city of rivers and mountains" is a thriving community between the Pitt and Coquitlam Rivers. For those that love the outdoors, the PoCo Trail's 24-kilometres (14.9-miles) is popular with walkers/runners and bike riders and further exploration will reveal many more challenging hikes nearby.

Nestled in this growing city, is Westcoast SCI, a research-driven, active-based care physiotherapy clinic. We pride ourselves in delivering customized one-on-one treatment with the goal of empowering our patients with the tools, resources and education to reach their full potential. Our team of physiotherapists regularly attend post-graduate courses and we strive to stay current by running in-services to share and consolidate our knowledge. Longer sessions with each patient allow us to develop rapport and therapeutic alliance in a more relaxed setting, as well as spend a good portion of time doing active-based treatment. Mentorship by an experienced physiotherapist will aim to support your learning style and goals, while allowing you the opportunity for curiosity, growth and to experience the many nuances of patient care.
