Core Physio & Pilates Studios have over 30 highly skilled Physiotherapists working in our clinics across metropolitan Adelaide. Each clinic has been shaped and grown under the influence of our staff, our clients, referring Doctors and health professionals we serve. Every day we express our values and ethics in the way we work to help people get back on track after injury.
from the beginning
Core Physiotherapy & Pilates Studio opened its first practice in 1993 under the name of Woodcroft Physiotherapy. Using a philosophy of one-on-one patient care, coupled with good client education, the practice grew rapidly. Strong links were developed with members of the local community as well as local doctors and health care providers.
Following this success, our second clinic opened in 1996 at Burnside, heralding the beginning of a new era and a major focus on pilates exercise systems and rehabilitation.
Expansion has followed since to other areas across metro Adelaide, from Adelaide’s Southern suburbs to the North Eastern region, with our studios rebranding in 2008 to carry our current name ‘Core Physiotherapy & Pilates Studio’.
We continue to be proudly owned and operated by South Australian physiotherapists, with the owners of each practice working at that clinic. This ensures our customers continue to get the highest quality physiotherapy care, visiting safely in the knowledge that our independent ownership offers them a high level of personal service and care.
Each clinic offers an extensive range of services which you can explore on this website; have fully equipped pilates studios; and for your convenience stock an extensive range of therapy aids and equipment for purchase or hire.
Our therapists combine hands on therapy with a focus on pilates based strengthening. Coupled with this is our expertise in educating clients how to manage their own complaints through at home exercises between visits to our clinic.
We utilise the McKenzie method of spine assessment, diagnosis and treatment which helps clients not only quickly alleviate their pain, but gain and keep control of their problem long into the future.
Our care for clients focuses on listening to their problems and finding the quickest solutions to alleviate pain and begin the healing process.
We provide thorough half hour appointments as a minimum standard and one-on-one attention to fix your problem.
For clients that find it difficult to attend appointments during standard business hours, we offer after hours appointments 5 days a week, plus Saturday appointments and classes. Home Care visits are also offered to people unable to visit one of our practice locations.
Our pilates studios are spacious and fully equipped, with timetables abundant with choice to offer convenient daytime, after hours and weekend sessions.
