Physio for you in Aldinga
At Aldinga Bay Physio, our aim is to make you feel better quickly, then help you stay better long-term. We can help you overcome the aches and pains from everyday life, sports injuries, work related injuries, motor vehicle accidents and the pain from having just too many birthdays! We focus on addressing the source of your pain, not just the symptoms, with treatments specific to your goals.
Our hands on, manual therapy aims to settle your pain quickly, allowing you to move more normally. This includes joint mobilisation, neural stretching, soft tissue mobilisation with movement, postural correction, facilitated movement and appropriate intensity massage. Dry needling is also used to reach deep tissues and to help nerve pain.

Physio for you in Aldinga
At Aldinga Bay Physio, I aim to make you feel better quickly, then stay better. I want you to feel better as soon as possible so that we can move on to addressing the source of your problem, not just the symptoms. I keep up to date with the latest research to ensure you receive the best care possible. I believe in hands on, manual therapy to settle your pain and allow you to move more normally. This includes joint mobilisation, neural stretching, soft tissue mobilisation with movement, postural correction, facilitated movement and appropriate intensity massage. I tailor the pressure and intensity of this based on each individual and their condition. Dry needling is a useful strategy I sometimes use to reach deep tissues and to help nerve pain.
When the acute pain is managed, we will identify any underlying problems or weakness and start addressing these as soon as possible. You will get some tailored exercises to address any underlying issues and help stop your injury recurring. I will provide you with knowledge and support so that you feel in control of your health again. If I feel you would benefit from help elsewhere, I will point you in the right direction.
Aldinga Bay Physio can help with aches and pains from everyday life, sports injuries, work related injuries, motor vehicle accidents and the pain from having just too many birthdays! In addition to privately funded clients, Return to Work SA, DVA, MVA and NDIS funded clients are accepted.
Back pain can be caused by a number of things. It can come on suddenly or gradually over weeks, months or years.
Sciatica is a type of pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve and is often in the back of the thigh or calf.
There are several causes of neck pain. These include; wry neck, whiplash, postural related neck pain, neck pain due to shoulder weakness, discogenic neck pain, facet joint neck pain, myofascial neck pain.
I know how much people miss performing to their best or not being able to do the sport they love. Whether you are a weekend warrior, high level athlete or just need that run to clear your head, I should be able to help.
Headaches and migraine
Many headaches are caused by neck, shoulder or jaw problems. I will assess you to determine if your headache is one of these.
Hip and Knee Arthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a wear and tear type arthritis. It typically occurs more in our joints as we age. A lot of people will start to show signs of OA in their hips and knees as early as their 20s.
Tendonitis is when a tendon is inflamed and tendinopathy is a more chronic state, where changes have occurred to the tendon structure due to repeated injury to the tendon.
We have tendons all over our body. Tendonitis is when a tendon is inflamed and tendinopathy is a more chronic state, where changes have occurred to the tendon structure due to repeated injury to the tendon.
Total hip replacements/direct, anterior, posterior approaches
- Knee replacements
- Hip arthroscopy
- ACL reconstruction

Dry needling can be a useful compliment to physio treatment. Dry needling refers to the use of acupuncture needles within modern medical practice, rather than the traditional oriental principles.
Kids and the younger athlete
Having worked in a paediatric physiotherapy department in England and with youth sports teams, I am experienced in working with the different considerations between adults and the younger population in relation to injury.
I will happily see clients who receive funding from the NDIS who are self-managed or third party managed.
