Welcome to Aldelize van Tonder Physiotherapists, we provide evidence based physiotherapy services to all ages in and around Secunda.

Our aim is to be the best local provider of high quality physiotherapy treatment to our patients so that they can return to pain-free and optimal function in their daily activities.

We refer to and communicate closely with GP's, biokineticists, occupational therapists, physiotherapsits and specialists.


We are first-line practitioners and therefore you do not need a referral from a doctor or specialist to be seen by a physiotherapist.
