Physiotherapy in Victoria and Oakbay at Arbutus Physio and Health Clinic: Sandy Wilson and team

“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.”
