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)

Dry Needling relies on the stimulation of specific reactions in the target tissue for its therapeutic effect, this has found to be effective for relief of pain in muscles and connective tissue.
We use the “Watson Method” to identify whether your headache may be neck related.This involves taking a detailed history and a thorough examination. Our examination will check if the joints in your neck, nerves or muscles may be at fault.
Physio in Aldinga Region
Our ‘step by step’ process is designed to offer you rapid and sustainable results.
We consider your body as a whole and treat the cause of the condition, not just where it hurts. We explain what we find and how it relates to your condition.
As part of our thorough assessment we check: Nerves, Muscles and Joints (including the spine) leaving nothing to chance.
We make a list of all the potential causes of your problem, and then systematically test these to identify what is ‘driving’ your problem.
Importantly, your “driver” may not be in the area of your pain, That is why our whole body approach is so important, and ensures we get results your after
