Taylor Chestnut, MPT, BScKin

Taylor completed her Masters of Physiotherapy at the University of British Columbia. She also has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of Victoria, where she completed her honours thesis on the effects of exercise on the ageing brain, for which she won the Jamie Cassels Research Award. Taylor is passionate about working with ageing adults and helping them to maximize mobility and fitness. 

Taylor uses a trauma-informed, patient-specific treatment approach. Her treatment plans are based on patient-specific presentation and involve a combination of manual therapy, exercise prescription, and pain-neuroscience education. Taylor’s patients play an active role in their recovery. With the proper education and tools, Taylor empowers patients to be in control of their own recovery.

Taylor has her Orthopaedic Level 1 and plans to continue with more manual therapy courses. She also speaks French.

Taylor has been actively involved in the Oak Bay community for a number of years. She was previously a coach for the Pacific Athletics Track and Field club and really enjoys working with runners of all levels to achieve their performance goals. She has competed half marathons and plans to complete her first full marathon next year.

Within weeks she had me back to running!

“I have rolled my ankles quit a few times over the past 2 years leading to swollen ankles to the point it hurt to stand for long periods of time and decided to make an appointment with Physiotherapist, Sandy Wilson. After the first visit, I had full confidence in her and within weeks she had me back to running!”

Athletic background

“Because of Sandy’s own athletic background she brings both a deeper sense of what is going on and the sense of urgency that most people feel when they are injured. When you have something wrong you just want to get on with it. Sandy has an incredible feel for what is going on and how to fix it.”

Repair my body past what I thought was possible

“I have been going to see Sandy for a few years now for various sporting injuries. She is great at what she does, and I highly recommend her and I send all my friends to see her. She is very strong and has worked out knots/scars in my muscles to repair my body past what I thought was possible. I have tried other practitioners in the past and have always felt like they ignore what I say and just do what they feel is best without telling me why they are doing it- Sandy takes the time to listen and really give feedback on what she is doing and why she is doing it.

I have also recently seen Veronica Hewstan for chiropractic needs, and she has been great as well. She has a wide variety of techniques (ART, Graston etc) to treat a wide variety of injuries.”

My rehabilitation program was easy to follow

“Sandy Wilson is the consummate professional. My running injury was diagnosed efficiently, the treatment was highly effective and my rehabilitation program was easy to follow. What more could one ask for?”
