Rebecca Deluca – Physiotherapist
I have a passion for helping my clients achieve the highest level of performance and recovery, in all types of sport and aspects of life.
I love working with people of all ages and backgrounds, from elite athletes to the elderly; with an interest in understanding the underlying causes of injury, prevention, as well as movement rehabilitation.
I have experience working in private practice in Perth, treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries, from acute sporting injuries (state level Netballers & amateur AFL / Soccer) to chronic pain and disease management.
I completed my studies at the University of Notre Dame in Fremantle in 2013 and have since completed training in Dry Needling and DMA Clinical Pilates. Whilst studying, I was a resident at St Catherine’s College at UWA in Nedlands.
I have also studied a variety of dance styles, completing Dance Teaching Diplomas in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap and Highland Dancing and became a qualified adjudicator on the worldwide panel of Scottish Highland Dance. I traveled extensively overseas from 2007 to 2014 representing Australia in Highland Dancing. This experience contributes to my understanding of people’s movement patterns and biomechanics.
I am motivated and enthusiastic about working with all kinds of people and find it particularly rewarding to help manage chronic pain, guiding people to achieve their optimal physical and personal goals.

- Neck pain and postural strain
- Headaches / TMJ
- Back pain
- Chronic pain
- Sporting injuries
- Dance injuries & performance improvement
- Clinical Pilates for Dancers
- Pre & post-surgery
