Willunga Physio

Physio for Willunga, McLaren Vale & Aldinga

Willunga Physiotherapy Services

Our team of Physiotherapists use a unique approach that you may not have seen before. We are super thorough, to make you feel better by solving the cause of your pain or injury. We will explain what’s wrong and create a plan just for you. And we’ll make sure that you understand what you should and should not be doing to best help your recovery. But don’t worry it’s not all just “do these exercises!”
We are “hands on” Physios, who still use massage, mobilisation and gentle manipulation to help get you moving again.
We also use Dry Needling. And every client gets an exercise that helps ( but only 1 or 2, we promise)
