Samantha Walker, BKin, CAT(C)Provisional
As an Athletic Therapist, my mission is to help individuals return to their usual activities, exercise pain free, and reach their full physical potential. Whether on field or in the clinic, I am the first to respond to an injury, an expert at assessment and rehabilitation.
I have in-depth training in the human musculoskeletal system, exercise physiology, biomechanics, and basic emergency care. My methods involve implementing and utilizing various in-depth and client-centered manual therapies, modalities, exercise prescription, education, and bracing or taping to improve movement and function while decreasing pain.
I graduated from Camosun College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Athletic and Exercise Therapy, holding certifications such as Kinesiologist, CSEP Personal Trainer, Red Cross First Responder, Precision Nutrition Level 1, and World Rugby Medical programmes. I have gained invaluable skills and experience working with individuals at Rugby Canada, James Bay Athletic Association, Canucks Autism Network, and Athletic Therapy and Chiropractic clinics.
I was born and raised in the Cowichan Valley and enjoy living an active lifestyle that includes soccer, indoor bouldering, outdoor climbing, volleyball, hiking, and weightlifting. I also enjoy reading and have an infinite love for animals.
