Overview

I graduated from the University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 2003. I have worked in the area of musculoskeletal physiotherapy in Adelaide for 17 years in a number of different practice settings including rehabilitation, work health, occupational physiotherapy and private practice. I use a combination of hands on physiotherapy (gentle to moderate pressure), advanced neuromuscular dry needling and exercise-based treatment to help my patients achieve their goals. I have also completed extra training in administering kinetic link training exercise programs, which can provide a functional, and whole-body focus to improving strength and conditioning in patients of all ages and abilities.

My special interests are in the treatment of neck and back pain, posture correction, arthritis management, headaches, orthopaedic rehabilitation pre and post-surgery, occupational overuse injuries and sporting injuries. I also provide 1:1 assessment for therapeutic based exercise programmes and I conduct small group Pilates informed and therapeutic exercise classes tailored to the needs of my patients.

I am interested in keeping my senior patients as pain free, active and strong as possible and can assist with maintenance of joint and muscle movements to stay independent in day to day activities, gardening, walking and other hobbies.

My practice philosophy is to help my patients with conditions where physiotherapy is the appropriate therapy, by not only providing treatment of their presenting problem using a combination of techniques, but also providing them with the tools (including exercises and education) to assist in their recovery and foster preventive health. My personal sporting interests include playing golf and running. I am also a member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association.

I am available for appointments Monday - Friday so if you are looking for a physio who cares and can help you reach your long-term goals make an appointment with me, Alistair Hayes, today.
