Alison Wiggers grew up in Whitby, Ontario and moved to London for her undergraduate degree in Medical Science at Western University. She grew up playing competitive soccer, and was drawn to the field of physiotherapy during her undergraduate career after suffering sports injuries that required rehabilitation. While healthcare had always been her career goal, physiotherapy allowed her to combine her interests in science, anatomy, athletics and exercise with her passion for helping individuals meet their functional goals.
Alison graduated from Western University with an Honours Bachelor of Medical Science in 2013, and went on to receive her Masters in Physical Therapy from McMaster University in 2015. Since 2015, she has been working in outpatient community orthopedic physiotherapy. She has experience treating pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric patients with a wide variety of orthopedic and neurological conditions.
Alison has done additional post-graduate education in Anatomical Acupuncture, vestibular rehabilitation, concussion management, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (Level 1), and Advanced Orthopedic Manual Therapy (Level 3). She is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.
Her treatment approach focuses on patient-centered, individualized care by combining manual therapy, acupuncture and exercise prescription. She is passionate about helping people to return to the activities they love and increase their overall function. She believes in assessing the individual rather than just the injury and treating the root cause rather than just the symptoms.
Outside of work, Alison enjoys staying active by running, playing flag football, and participating in kickboxing and karate.
