Committed to providing high quality, progressive, evidence-based physiotherapy to the community.
Based at UniSA’s City East, City West, 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).
We can provide assessment and treatment for:
- back, neck and limb pain
- sports injuries and screening
- orthopaedic injuries and musculoskeletal injuries (including rehabilitation after surgery)
- repetition strain injuries
- neurological conditions
- movement related disorders
We can design and supervise:
- mobilising and strengthening exercise programs for individuals and groups (e.g. sporting teams) in a purpose built, well-equipped rehabilitation gymnasium (including Pilates equipment).
We can offer advice regarding:
- back care
- safe work practices
- return to work and/or sport following injury
- fitness, health and wellbeing
We offer dedicated children’s services from our City West and Magill campus.
Motor to the Max
Located at the UniSA Magill campus, we offer a free small group-based program, Motor to the Max, for preschool and primary school aged children (e.g. 4-8 year olds). Children who experience difficulty with movement skills such as balance, coordination, jumping and ball skills, can participate in a one-hour group session over a 5 week block. These group services are delivered by students under the supervision of qualified physiotherapists.
Individual physiotherapy sessions
Located at the UniSA City West Health & Medical clinic, we offer individual physiotherapy sessions to support the development of children of all ages at an affordable price. Children will improve areas such as movement skills, balance, strength, flexibility, coordination and play/sport skills. We work together with children and families to target specific goals over a 5 week block.
Please note there may be a wait list for services. Children who are not already receiving services from a physiotherapist will be given priority.
Concession rates apply to those under 18 years, student and health care card holders. Student services are supervised by registered physiotherapists.
*Claims cannot be made against insurance agencies (including private health, WorkCover and accident-related injuries). Please note clients who currently have a WorkCover or insurance claim cannot be seen by an undergraduate or postgraduate student.
Registered physiotherapist services
A proportion of these costs are applicable for rebate through private health schemes with ‘extras’ cover. During non-teaching times (December–February), a discounted fee applies for full-time tertiary students and holders of Pensioner Concession and/or health care cards at our City East clinic only.
