About Victor

Victor has joined our clinic in Howick in February 2013. He moved up from Christchurch about a year ago, where he also worked in private practice. Victor is a very enthusiastic young man for whom physiotherapy is much than just a job. He is very passionate about his profession and will be very happy to help you with any niggles or injuries you may have. Victor is very excited about being to help you fix your injuries and pains at the new location at Mt Wellington Physiotherapy.

Victor also co-authored a review article that has been published in the Physical Therapy Reviews journal.

Victor’s personal statement: “I grew up in the area from kindergarten in Pakuranga right through to attending Macleans College in the Bucklands beach area. After spending all my life here it was time for a change and so I made the trip down to the deep south to study at the University of Otago. It was there where I had discovered my passion for musculoskeletal physiotherapy and had graduated with a bachelor of physiotherapy.


From 2011 I lived and worked in Christchurch for the next 2 years. During my final year at university I worked in a variety of areas ranging from post-operative orthopaedic wards to acute stroke rehabilitation. I obtained experience in a wide range of clinical settings but as diverse as my experiences were it has always been musculoskeletal physiotherapy which had my attention.


After graduating, I immediately got a job with a large musculoskeletal clinic in Christchurch. Given the recent events in Christchurch I have had substantial experience in all forms of accident claims as well as laboring work related injuries. I have had the opportunity to manage several sports teams from local rugby teams to international cricket teams.


As a physiotherapist, my personal goal is to help you return to pain free, full function – whether that be a return to sport, work or just activity, and if willing, to help you attain a higher level of function through exercise and focused thinking. I look forward to meeting and working with you.”
