We work closely with Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgeons, local GPs, case managers (for both ACC and private insurers) and other allied health professionals.

What We Do

  • amputations
  • arthritis
  • work-related injuries
  • pain
  • paediatric conditions
  • neurological (eg, post-stroke)
  • post-surgical conditions (eg, Dupuytrens)

Management may include the following approaches:

  • Active/passive range of motion exercises
  • Oedema control
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Pain management
  • Sensory re-education training
  • Desensitisation techniques
