Dr. Julian Mendes has been a licensed chiropractor for almost 25 years. After completing an undergraduate degree at the University of Lethbridge, he then went on to receive his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1998.
Following graduation, Dr. Mendes opened a chiropractic office in Calgary and practiced in his community for over eight years. It was not until the desire for a warmer climate and the beautiful lakes that he decided to move his family west to open an office in Kelowna, BC. It is here, where Dr. Mendes started to branch into a niche area of spinal care in scoliosis management. Along with a busy chiropractic practice and developing scoliosis practice, Dr. Mendes’ found time for volunteer outreach and provided disenfranchised individuals access to chiropractic care in the downtown core. The summer of 2013 then marked a return back to hometown Calgary to reconnect with family and further grow his specialized area of scoliosis care.
Dr. Mendes’ passion for helping individuals suffering from scoliosis of the spine continues to grow today. He has expanded his knowledge by studying new advancements in the area of scoliosis, both for adults and children, and has successfully completed advanced training in the treatment of scoliosis. He is one of very few accredited scoliosis providers for bracing and exercise/rehabilitation in western Canada.
