Physiotherapy

Reduce your pain and get the most out of life.

Twenty years ago, superstar Peter Sampras was forced to withdraw from the US Open. The reason – lower back pain.

This year, Serena Williams left the Cincinnati Masters with a back injury. Roger Federer missed most of a year with a knee issue, Del Potro was recovering from multiple wrist surgeries, and Rafael Nadal has been plagued by injury for the last eight years.

And that's just the tennis.

Because it's not just sports superstars who suffer from pain. Mothers and fathers the world over will contend that the repetitive lifting, holding, carrying and rocking of their babies have earned them the right to name their own ailment – call it bundle-of-joy-itis. 

Pain has a habit of getting in the way. But thankfully, pain can be treated. 

With 14+ years helping people just like you, physiotherapist Stacey Stoneman will heal – rather than simply manage – your pain.

Stoneman Physiotherapy is based here at Adelaide Aquatic Centre, out in the therapy room between the spas and the gym. Born across the Tasman on the Long White Cloud, former kiwi and now Adelaide local Stacey Stoneman holds:

• Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Cerfication
• Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy)
• Bachelor of Sports Studies

Guaranteeing you expert knowledge based on science and evidence to give you the best treatment for your needs.

How do I know if physiotherapy is for me?

Physiotherapy uses physical techniques to improve your movement, reduce your pain and stiffness, speed up your healing process and increase your quality of life.

If your feeling pain in your body, particularly the back or joints, or have recently had an injury – it's worth seeing a physio. 

You can see a physiotherapist at any time and you don’t have to see your doctor first, although is can be a good idea to talk options and get a referral.
