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 practice she spends time with family and training with her husband for her next race.
“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!”Angie Boyle, Executive Assistant at B78 Multisport Coaching
“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.”B78 Multisport Athletic Coaching
“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.”Graeme Galloway
“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?”Tony Zarsadias
