About Sumeshnee Pillay Physiotherapy

Sumeshnee Pillay is a healthcare professional who is extremely passionate about helping patients with their pain by thoroughly assessing and providing effective treatment and rehabilitation using evidence based techniques.

Her focus is on empowering her patients to control their own journey by challenging their beliefs about their pain and motivating positive lifestyle change. Her approach is based on the biopsychosocial model of pain, taking into account the various possible influences on a patient’s pain state from the psychological and social domains, not only the biological. This is what makes every patient unique. She does not treat ‘diagnoses’, but rather the WHOLE patient and is keen on a multidisciplinary approach when required.

What makes us different?

How we talk about, assess and manage pain has completely changed over the years and it is Sumeshnee’s aim to stay up to date with the latest research so that she can utilise only evidence based techniques. A few years ago, certain pain information was considered a bit ‘out there’, but science really backs it up now.

She takes a very ‘hands on’ approach which can impart valuable information regarding assessment of tissues, provide reassurance, facilitate relaxation and movement, result in fear reduction and provide pain relief. ‘Hands on’ is not however used to reinforce dependence on passive therapies. Patient empowerment is key.

Here's what our patients have to say

Sumeshnee is great. I went to her for a few sessions after experiencing excruciating headaches. She sorted the cause and I’ve not had a headache since. Highly recommended 👍🏽

I’ve been utilizing the service of Sumeshnee Pillay from the time she started practicing in Hillmed House Malvern. She provides the best treatment ever and I’m currently getting treatment for my post shoulder operation which is excellent. I’m sure you will not be disappointed if you ever require physiotherapy.read more

Sumeshnee is definitely the physio you want to go to. My 5 year old son recently fell at school and fractured his arm and Sumeshnee gave me the best advice as well as the support I needed to deal with the trauma. She did follow up calls with me which makes a mums heart glad to know someone cares for her child to that extent. She is sincere and really professional and skilled!read more

I have been for many different Physio sessions to Sumeshnee and I have always been very satisfied with my treatments. I appreciate the fact that she has a hands-on approach rather than just using machines. She is thorough and allows sufficient time for each patient. She has a wonderful personality that augers well for this healing modality.read more
