Senior Physiotherapist and Pilates Teacher
Body Organics Brisbane
Douglas Wilson graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of Queensland in 2004. Since then Douglas has consistently worked as a physiotherapist in Brisbane with musculoskeletal clients in private practice, professional sport and occupational health environments.
Douglas is a big believer in hands-on treatment with special interests in Active Release Techniques, Muscle Energy Techniques, Acupuncture and Pilates for injury rehabilitation. Throughout his career Douglas has spent time working as a physiotherapist with Brisbane rugby union clubs, the Queensland Reds and Qantas.
Being part of various working cultures and environments has provided challenges which have required the development of extensive skillsets that effectively cross over to treatment of patients in the private practice environment. Douglas is passionate about getting results quickly:
“Nothing beats being able to see a patient walk with minimal discomfort out of the room when their discomfort was obvious as they walked in. It is for this reason I enjoy what I do immensely and find it a source of continual motivation, just knowing you have been able to have that kind of impact on someone’s life.”
Doug especially enjoys treating lower limb conditions as well as spinal pain and upper limb conditions such as shoulder impingement, tennis elbow and carpal tunnel.
