Physiotherapy Services

Our physiotherapists are skilled in many styles of manual therapy including Mulligan Concept, McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy, Maitland Therapy, and massage.

We wish to be known for our handling skills and “hands on treatments” for those patients with joint stiffness, pain and dysfunction. Often manual therapy will be used to create a window of opportunity to allow the patient to start mobilising again and to exercise without pain.

Mulligan Concept manual therapy is unique in that when indicated the treatment is pain free and readily can be repeated as a home exercise.

The McKenzie Method uses repeated movement and force progressions and is especially useful for diagnosis and treatment of disc injuries.

Maitland techniques are passive and can be graded from a very gentle traction to a high velocity manipulation.

Massage also has a place in manual therapy, improving blood flow , releasing tension and improving lymphatic drainage.

Please advise our receptionist if you are seeking one of these specific methods in your treatment so we can pair you with the appropriate physiotherapist.

Physio sessions pre-operatively for any orthopaedic surgery is an important step in maximising your recovery. Concentrating on pre-op strengthening and flexibility has been shown to decrease post operative pain and increase the speed of recovery.

We will help to improve your pain using manual therapy, massage, acupuncture and graduated exercises to get you moving and feeling like normal again, then we will work on ways to help prevent future injury. This may involve things such as a cardio-vascular fitness plan, a maintenance plan for your strength or advice on warming up and cooling down.

If you are wanting to improve your physical fitness, our staff can set you up with a specific strength and exercise program to reach your goals. We work with you to develop a program tailored to suit you needs, your baseline abilities and your lifestyle. Focus can be shifted over the program to address areas that you feel may need more attention

The programs can be adjusted to suit home based strengthening and exercise, or gym based depending on what you have access to.

Acupuncture has been used as a therapeutic treatment for the health of the Chinese people for over 3000 years. Doctors and Physiotherapists are now using it widely in New Zealand.

It involves the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points to treat a variety of illnesses, injuries or diseases. Many of our physiotherapists have dry needling and advanced western acupuncture skills.

Breathing is now recognised as having a huge impact on the way the other systems in the body react to stress. Many people have issues with tightness in the chest, anxiety, gut issues, panic attacks, headaches and a myriad of other symptoms which all can be contributed to by poor breathing patterns. Come for a full breathing assessment and learn specific techniques to help control your breathing rhythm and rate and help you control your breathing rather than your breathing controlling you.

Breathing education and support is also essential for those with chronic lung
conditions such as asthma, bronchiectasis and COPD. We can help by teaching you what is happening within your lungs, what to expect in the future and how to deal with your ongoing lung condition. Including regular lung clearance techniques which can be so important in maintaining healthy lungs.
