Our practice

About Just Physio

Just Physio is a physiotherapy practice situated in Pretoria East in the Faerie Glen area. The practice (Elbe Coetzer Fisioterapeute) was established 10 years ago and recently changed ownership under Adrien Dannhauser to JUST PHYSIO.

We treat every patient with dignity and respect. Our physiotherapists believe that every patient is unique; therefore we do a thorough first evaluation to ensure we don’t only treat the symptoms but also the cause of the problem. We are a hands-on practice that keeps up to date with the latest research to make sure that our treatments are effective. New research and new techniques are used as “tools” to help fix your problem.

Our Team

Adrien Dannhauser


Owner and physiotherapist

Adrien graduated from The University of Pretoria with a Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy (BPhyst) in 2008. She continued with post graduate studies completing her SPORT1 diploma in 2014. Since qualifying  Adrien has worked at various private practices around Pretoria, gaining over 10 years of clinical experience. In July 2017 she decided to start her own practice – JUST PHYSIO.

Adrien is a hands-on physio with a special interest in sport injuries. Being a sports person herself she understands that sports people need to get back to their sport as soon as possible. She believes that your treatment can only be as good as your diagnosis. You have to find the problem  to help the patient. Treatment doesn’t stop in the room, so a home exercises program will always be given as part of the treatment. She uses a lot of massage, dry needling, strapping and manual therapy like Mulligan, McKenzie and Maitland techniques.

In her efforts to keep up with the latest treatment techniques and research, Adrien has completed the following courses:
