>> Show more information about this practice/clinic

At Southside Clinic we have helped over 10,000 patients get back to living a healthier pain free lifestyle.

Southside Clinic (originally Southside Osteopathy) was established in January 2008 when Dr Andrea Robertson started working in Adelaide as a sole-practitioner renting a single room in a multi-disciplinary clinic in Wayville.

In late 2008, Andrea expanded Southside Osteopathy to its first stand-alone location on Unley Road. From early 2010 until late 2012, Southside Osteopathy also had a clinic in Glenelg, but in late 2012, Andrea consolidated the two clinics into one larger clinic in Unley, expanding into next door and doubling the size of the original Unley Rd clinic. In November 2015, Andrea once again expanded with a new location and a new name, yet the same great service. We combined our Southside Barre studio with Southside Osteopathy into one large purpose built ‘Southside Clinic’ on Hughes St in Unley.

Southside Clinic is now one of Adelaide’s largest Allied Health clinic offering not just Osteopathy but also Physiotherapy, Massage, Clinical Pilates, Nutrition & Naturopathy, Psychology, Psychiatry and group fitness classes through our sister business The Barre Clinic.

I run a once weekly clinic where I see, among others, patients with hypermobility disorder. They are often referred to me by the Pain Clinic, Paediatricians, General practitioners, Family doctors, Orthopaedic surgeons or Physiotherapists when a patient presents with unexplained pain and/or a musculoskeletal condition. There is easier access to a rehabilitation team at our hospital once a diagnosis has been established especially if pain is at the forefront at time of referral. I also work with community therapists if patients find it easier to have treatment sessions locally. I see patients who live around the Montreal area and anywhere in the province of Quebec if local expertise is not available. I am also open to see outof-province patients if local expertise is not available as long as there is a provincial health coverage in their province. I speak French, English and Spanish fluently.

The national Ehlers-Danlos syndrome diagnostic service is a specialist service for individuals and families who are suspected to have complex Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS).

The service focuses on diagnosing complex EDS. Sometimes, it may be more appropriate for an individual to see their local general clinical genetics team in the first instance who can refer on to us if there is a complex diagnostic question. When the main issues are managing the day-to-day aspects of EDS it can be more useful to be referred to other specialists such as rheumatologists, physiotherapists or paediatricians.

Over half of my caseload is individuals with hypermobile joints, abnormal connective tissue &/or chronic pain and fatigue. I have additional specialty training in peri-partum care and have supported women with GJH/HSD/hEDS through this phase. I experience GJH and meet 2017 criteria for hEDS, so I truly understand the pain and struggle that my patients live each day. My approach is focused on training body awareness and optimal movement strategies (Movement Impairment Syndromes Approach) and empowering individuals to take control of their daily lives. I have developed a style of manual therapy through trial and error that provides temporary symptom relief and augments the home exercise program and movement strategies. I also focus on training self care skills for pain management (TENS, hot/cold, massage, sleep hygiene, etc). I offer no miracles, but promise better management of our very unique bodies.

As patients ourselves, we believe strongly in the healing power of the patient-doctor relationship and getting to the root of medical problems. This is the cornerstone of our practice. Our patients are entitled to thorough, affordable, easily accessible, personalized medical care. We recognize that all patients are unique and special and one-size fits-all approaches do not generally work for all patients. Therefore, rather than employing a more traditional, disease-centered approach to healing, we focus on the individual as a whole, not as a set of symptoms or diseases.
