Welcome to U Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates
U Physiotherapy & Clinical Pilates formerly, Unanderra Physiotherapy and Pilates has been successfully treating patients in the Illawarra since 1992. To be around this long we must be doing something right! We love the fact that we really get to build a relationship with our patients. The kids we used to look after with their sports and growing injuries are now back bringing their own families in for treatment.
Our philosophy is to not only achieve a great outcome but to have a great experience along the way. Our staff are very friendly and caring and strive to make your time at our practice as enjoyable as possible. Our physiotherapists continually undertake ongoing education to provide you with the best treatment approach.
Every patient is equally important. Whilst we do treat elite athletes they are no more important than the "weekend warrior" or the patient with their post op knee replacement. You won't be taking second place to sporting teams. We have the expertise to treat kids with growing pains right through to our stiffening older population and enjoy the diversity and variety of problems that we see.
