Welcome to U Physiotherapy and Clinical Pilates
We are open through the Coronavirus crisis
This is a challenging time. Unresolved pain issues and staying home with reduced exercise can actually increase your odds of getting sick; so we are open for business.
It is safe to visit us
Remember that we are not like a doctor’s clinic: We don't have sick people waiting around.
Our patients typically see us because they are suffering from pains, aches and limited physical movement; not because they suspect they may have COVID-19.
It is safer to be in our clinic than supermarkets, restaurants or public transport.
Also, remember that the “stay at home” order does not apply when attending essential health services at our clinic.
If you are well, please come in for your appointments, knowing that we are taking all steps to keep you safe and well while visiting our clinic. The safety of our patients and staff is absolutely critical.
- We have plenty of room: You won't be within 2m of anyone else except your physiotherapist.
- You cannot catch the virus by someone touching your back, knee etc.
- Pilates beds have been moved apart and you will be staying on your own piece of equipment.
- We have taken extra measures of separating all our therapists and admin staff into teams who will not be working shifts with each other. This way, if someone ever does test positive, there will be another team ready to look after you.
- Cleaning continues to be super vigilant and hand sanitiser is compulsory for everyone.
U Physiotherapy & Clinical Pilates - Unanderra, formerly Unanderra Physiotherapy and Pilates, has been successfully treating patients in the Illawarra since 1992. We also have a sister clinic U Physiotherapy & Clinical Pilates - Wollongong, located at 51 Crown Street (Corner of Corrimal Street)- for appointments call 42437077.
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.
Fast Relief of Pain
If you're on our website then you, or someone close to you, is in pain. We will quickly help to relieve that pain in the short term and then work on a long term solution to your problem.
Every body is different and each injury is different. We will tailor a treatment approach to meet your individual needs and get you the best possible results.
Respectful and Private
We treat you with the utmost respect. You will be provided with a gown to retain your modesty. Our treatments are private. No curtained off cubicles here!
Goals are Set by You
We want to help you achieve the outcome you want, whether it be returning to work, running the City to Surf or looking after the grandkids.
Long Term Pain Relief
We provide genuine injury rehabilitation to achieve lasting results. We can teach you strategies to make sure you understand how your body works and protect it from injuries in the future.
Hands-on, Individual Treatment
We pride ourselves on a hands on approach without a focus on gimmicky machines and only treat one person at a time. We take time to listen to your problem and treat all injuries with the same importance, and same level of care
Modern Accessible Practice
Our modern practice building is air conditioned and very comfortable. It is easily accessible by bus and train and parking is available on the street in front and across the road.
Doctor's Referral NOT Required
All you need to start treatment with us is to make an appointment and the sooner you start the faster and better the results. You only need a doctors referral if your treatment is being paid for through Worker's compensation, Third party, medicare plans or DVA.
