Physiotherapy.

Do you have an acute injury, chronic condition, illness or niggle which has developed or isn’t going away? Move Physio has experienced Physiotherapists who can provide treatment for common issues, as well as more complex problems.

Move Physio operates within Move for Better Health, which has two locations at Unley Road (Malvern) and Magill Road (Magill) in Adelaide. Our team adopts an individualised approach to Physiotherapy treatment, with a thorough assessment in your first session, to ensure we accurately diagnose and fully understand the root cause of your problem. Based on this we then develop a treatment plan to help you move better and achieve your goals, whether they are to resolve an injury, manage a health condition, improve your movement and wellbeing, or achieve a specific sports or fitness goal.

Manual therapy, exercise, education, advice and self-management strategies are an integral part of our approach. We can also work closely with other health professionals at Move for Better Health to optimally and holistically address, manage your problem and prevent recurrences.

Move Physio can help with:

We pride ourselves in offering our patients the latest technologies to help you achieve your outcomes. To create your tailored exercise programs we use a free app called PhysiApp. PhysiApp lets you complete your prescribed exercise program by following crystal-clear, narrated exercise videos. Built-in reminders help you to stay on track towards a better you!

Our practice also fosters a passionate commitment to ongoing professional education, so we can always offer you treatment techniques reflecting the most current and evidence based research. We also routinely liaise with other allied health professionals as well as GPs or specialists, to coordinate and manage your care from a multidisciplinary perspective.

What to Expect

If you’re seeing Move Physio for the first time or for a new issue, you will require an assessment, which is usually 45 minutes in length. During this initial assessment, your Physiotherapist will speak with you about your physical and medical history, perform a clinical assessment relevant to your issue and provide treatment where appropriate.

Our Physiotherapists also will develop a Recommended Treatment Plan specific to you, which maps out your diagnosis, possible contributing factors, management options, recommendations, and any additional advice or referral. As every person is different, our treatment plans change depending on your issue and your goals. The various treatment options or recommendations we provide may include:

  • Hands-on treatment: Otherwise known as ‘manual therapy’, our Physiotherapists are experienced allied health practitioners, with a wide range of special interests and repertoire of treatment techniques. All are committed to ongoing professional development so they can provide up to date treatment plans based on clinical evidence
  • Exercises: We believe that in many cases, movement is medicine. Our allied health practitioners utilise a range of exercise options which can be viewed here
  • Advice & lifestyle changes: In addition to hands-on and exercise-based treatment plans, sometimes lifestyle changes are required to achieve long lasting results
  • Dry Needling: In addition to manual therapy, we also offer Dry Needling as a treatment alternative
  • Pain education: If you have a long term or chronic condition, we provide pain education and alternative approaches to exercise, treatment, and management of your condition
  • Referral to another health professional: Sometimes, Physiotherapy isn’t always the most relevant or appropriate course of action. We have in-house Exercise Physiologists, Podiatrists, Psychologists and Dietitians. Together, we provide a multi-disciplinary service under one roof. We also have a network of other high quality health professionals that we refer to if required and if appropriate.
