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 10 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.

Staying fit and healthy

The last race of the season is almost here and I've been so grateful that I haven't been injured this year. It makes me think about the difference between fitness and health...

When to Use Cold Treatment for Sprains and Strains

If used correctly following an injury or when beginning a rehabilitation or exercise program, hot and cold can help to reduce pain, assist with tissue healing, control swelling, and increase flexibility. BUT if used incorrectly, however, they can also worsen an injury or slow recovery times. Use caution when engaging in activities shortly after applying heat or cold since both may affect muscle and nerve performance as well as your ability to perceive pain or determine your normal limits.
