Physiotherapy Clinic

Committed to providing high quality, progressive, evidence-based physiotherapy to the community.

Based at UniSA’s City East and Magill campuses, the Physiotherapy Clinic offers assessment and treatment across a variety of different areas. Services are provided by professionally supervised final year undergraduate physiotherapy students, postgraduate students and/or fully-qualified physiotherapists.

Designed to address your individual needs, we deliver hands-on quality care to help restore, maintain and promote optimal physical function and sports participation.

We offer self-management strategies and home exercises to clients with a range of issues that may recur. We design exercise programs for individuals and groups, and offer advice about safe work practices, exercise and fitness, return to work, as well as health and wellbeing.

Appointments are essential (a medical practitioner referral isn’t required to access our services).

Childrens’ Services

We offer dedicated children’s services from our Magill campus.

Motor to the Max program

We offer free small one hour group sessions for children aged 3½-10 years who have difficulty with movement skills (e.g. balance, coordination, jumping and ball skills). These group services are delivered by students under the supervision of qualified physiotherapists

Individual physiotherapy sessions

We offer individual physiotherapy sessions to support children of all ages to improve areas such as movement skills, balance, strength, flexibility, coordination and play/sport skills. These are available at a minimal cost over 5-week blocks and progress is reviewed at the end of each block to assess the need for further sessions.

Please note there may be a wait list for services. Children who are not already receiving services from a physiotherapist will be given priority.
