Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy strives to work collaboratively with like minded clinicians and its patients to provide an integrated approach to healthcare concerns. We believe that the patient is at the core of their treatment paradigm and as such, we want you to be involved every step of the way when resolving your health concerns.

Treatments and programs are specifically tailored for you and your overall health so that our input leaves you feeling better for the long run.

Physiotherapy combines uniformly with other modalities of healthcare such as chiropractic and podiatry treatments. As such we always consider the patient, their values and other possible measures that may be necessary to ensure you are being fully looked after.

About our clinic

Adelaide Sports was founded by a thirst for knowledge; three progressive and passionate healthcare practitioners coming together to better understand our patient’s and their unique human body. A strong collaborative approach allows us to better understand the complexities of movement and pain and allows us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients. Care is deeply ingrained in our culture at Adelaide Sports, with each practitioner demonstrating a deep understanding of the physical, emotional and social impacts of your pain. We are committed to integrating this level of patient care with the most up to date techniques in our fields to ensure that our patients are meeting their health and wellness goals.
