Sandy Wilson, Registered Physiotherapist

Sandy graduated from The University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy in 1999. She has been working in Victoria as a Sports Physiotherapist for over 14 years and spent 8 years as part of a multidisciplinary team at Synergy Health Management. She opened Arbutus Physiotherapy in 2012.

As a competitive (age-group) triathlete she is familiar with injury from sport and understands what is required for rehabilitation. Sandy uses manual therapy techniques, dry needling/IMS, shockwave therapy, ultrasound and rehabilitative exercises to treat a wide range of injuries and movement impairments. She also prescribes custom orthotics. Sandy has a very hands-on approach to ensure each patient receives the very best treatment to promote their full recovery and return to an active, healthy lifestyle.

Outside of Sandy’s busy practice she spends her time with her two young children and training with her husband for her next race.

A bouquet of yellow and red tulips in a glass vase, which we see only the top of, set against a white background. Slightly left of center is the focus of the picture, which is a yellow blossoming tulip. It is sticking out from the others and bent to that the center of the flower is facing the camera.
