Victoria Goudy BScHK , Kinesiologist
As a Kinesiologist, Victoria will assess and work with you on your balance, range of movement and strength. She will help you with your goals, whether it is reducing your pain, or increasing your fitness or helping you with your activities of daily living.
Victoria graduated from UVic with her B.Sc in Kinesiology. As a kinesiologist her primary treatment modality is exercise; this means that she is involved in a treatment plan after the initial injury phase and once the patient is able to begin participating in progressive degrees of activity. All in all though, she strongly believes in promoting physical activity as active rehabilitation for all kinds of injuries or illnesses, and that exercise is a highly adaptable tool that can be beneficial for a varied population.
Island born and raised, Victoria had opportunities to play soccer quite competitively, develop a deep love of golf, and compete as a hunter-jumper equestrian. Currently playing for LIWSA Div1, Victoria’s personal sport participation and background led to a variety of injuries growing up and first stirred her interest in the rehabilitation process.
Following her degree, Victoria became certified in Functional Movement Screening (FMS Level 1) in the fall of 2019. FMS provides a great foundational tool to assess mobility and motor control in seven fundamental movement patterns. Victoria also has educational knowledge and experience with personal training protocols – with plans to get her CSEP-CPT (personal trainer) certification early 2020.
Having grown up on (and around) golf courses, Victoria’s passion is focused on golf biomechanics and rehabilitation. She is intrigued by the way every swing can be completely different and individual – hello, Matthew Wolff! – but still accomplish the same goal; which is why she will be pursuing certification with the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) in 2020. Victoria looks forward to helping injured golfers rehabilitate and return to play, adjust swing biomechanics for altered physiological states to continue play, or simply assess how to improve swing efficiency and performance.BOOK NOW
