Dr. Peter Wilson
Dr. Peter Wilson was born and raised in the west end of Georgian Bay in the Owen Sound area. He spent many summers on the shores of Lake Huron’s Sauble Beach, and most of his winter months on the hills of Blue Mountain. He is excited to be back in this area to enjoy all of the wonderful activities the Collingwood area has to offer.
From a very young age, Dr. Peter was very interested in patient centred care to help people get healthy. This led him to the University of Windsor where he successfully completed his Bachelor of Human Kinetics with a major in Human Movement. From here he moved to Toronto to study at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Upon graduation he started working in Barrie, and then moved to Wasaga Beach. He is excited to be now working in Collingwood!
Dr. Peter Wilson loves the area and has rooted himself in the community as an active member of the Rotary Club, as well as the Chamber of Commerce. He is looking forward to getting more involved in the Collingwood Community.
Dr. Wilson lives and encourages all to live an active lifestyle. Whether it is more formal exercise on a team or individual sport, or just out walking with friends. He is involved in a multitude of recreational sports year round including soccer, hockey, snowboardking, volleyball, baseball, ultimate frisbee and ball hockey.
Since graduating Dr. Wilson has continued his studies to develop the skills to become a musculoskeletal specialist effectively treating many conditions related to the muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves. His Chiropractic adjusting techniques include Diversified, Activator (low force) and Thompson (drop-table). He supports his adjustments with rehabilitative exercises, Contemporary Acupuncture and ART (Active Release Technique which is a deep tissue technique)
Dr. Peter Wilson loves Chiropractic and finds it a very enjoyable and rewarding profession on personal level. Nothing pleases him more than helping the people in his community have better health and function so they can have a more active life! Dr. Wilson looks forward to helping you meet your health and wellness goals, and assuring you achieve optimal health through up-to-date evidence based Chiropractic care.
