Victoria has a long history of medical complaints including significant lung disease and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (severe hypermobility). Prior to her involvement with PhysioFunction, she had been hospitalised over 200 times with the latest admission lasting nearly nine months. During this period, Victoria had developed profound muscle weakness and required a team of four physiotherapists to help her stand and walk with the aid splints and a frame, and Oxygen. She had lost her sense of 'midline' and balance.
Golf injuries are usually a result of the collective effect of factors such as incorrect stance, poor posture, a weak or over-tight grip, idiosyncratic swing mechanics and untrained or overused muscles. The cumulative effect of these characteristics make it difficult to isolate one overriding factor.
