About Us

Riley Physiotherapy

Gillitts, Kloof & Hillcrest practices

Riley Physiotherapists have been a trusted name in Physiotherapy in the upper Highway since 2003.

Juli-Ann Riley is the founder of this practice and is still actively involved in the running of the practice, staff mentoring and training and providing physiotherapy herself.

The main branch is located at The Gillitts Medical Centre, Durban, KwaZulu Natal. There are also rooms in Kloof (Femina Health) and Hillcrest (Le Domaine Health).  Additionally, consultations are provided in all nursing homes and private homes in the upper highway, for those that cannot come to us. We make physiotherapy accessible and provide the personal touch.

We are a small team that can offer this personalised treatment, but are large enough to offer an accessible and comprehensive physiotherapy service, with expertise, additional training and experience across the various physiotherapy fields.

Juli-Ann Riley has a passion for providing quality physiotherapy care and has 25-years’ experience in the field.

She completed her postgraduate Orthopaedic Manual Therapy course with distinction and was awarded the prize for the top student.
