NDIS and Physiotherapy

How can Physio Support People with a disability?

 

WE – LISTEN – PLAN – DO – REVIEW – COMMUNICATE

Who we are

We are a small team, who work together to make people feel better about their bodies and themselves. We have been providing Physio to the Fleurieu community since 2008 and we live here. We treat people with disability the same as anyone else. As everybody matters (it’s our motto).

We are known for making Physio Fun 😊.

There is a place for you in the Willunga Physio community.

 

Join our community today.

Sarah our dedicated NDIS health professional is available to answer NDIS participants or providers questions.

We look forward to working with you to support your independence and lifestyle.

What we offer

We provide NDIS Physio Services in our friendly Clinic, our Physio Exercise Studio including Pilates, at a local Hydrotherapy Pool and we can also come to you!

We help you work towards your goals with a combination of “hands on”, massage, stretching and exercise therapy.

We train carers and mentors to help at home to stretch your ‘Physio’ budget further.

We are experienced at working closely with participants, their families, friends and NDIS Supports including Support Coordinators.

Our Practice prides itself on providing Therapy, Exercises, Education, Resources and Laughter 🙂   

How we are different

NDIS services at Willunga Physiotherapy are different because:

Participants here enjoy ‘hands on’ treatment and exercise therapy. We understand everybody gets sore and tired and sometimes we need that extra Physio care.

We are a small team so participants can choose to always see the SAME Physio.   This can help build rapport and get better results.

When you have a Physio session with us, we work hard and have a few laughs. So, it is a Physio session and a social outing.  You will become a part of the Willunga Physio Community.

It can be tricky doing the paperwork, and even understanding how Physio can help you meet your goals– we make it simple.  Sarah our designated health professional works with you, your team and NDIS to make sure your time and energy is spent on your goals, not on the paperwork
