Thursday mornings – Wairau Valley
Following a thorough assessment, we will discuss the findings with you, so you have a clear understanding of what’s going on.
Based on your diagnosis, we'll design a treatment programme just for you, in partnership with your Physiotherapist and support you through your recovery.
You can expect to gain confidence and control back over your body, and in many cases, make a complete recovery.
Anyone with a sports injury who feels they aren’t hitting their rehab milestones and are concerned about progress. Maybe you are:
Like doctors who specialise (such as cardiologists), Physiotherapists can also focus on specific areas. A Sports Specialist Physiotherapist has advanced training in sports injury rehabilitation and is recognised by The Physiotherapy Board of NZ and The International Federation of Sports Physiotherapists. While many Physiotherapists handle sports injuries, a Sports Physiotherapy Specialist dedicates considerable time to this specific field, offering extra advice and support, particularly for those facing crucial rehab timelines or major sporting events.
In New Zealand, there are only a few Specialist Sports Physiotherapists, and we are fortunate to have Rebecca Longhurst at Axis. Her expertise is highly sought after by elite athletes, and she spends much of her time with High Performance Sport NZ, as well as supporting athletes at major events like the Olympics.
Absolutely. In fact, the best results happen when we work collaboratively with you and your Physiotherapist, and we love working this way too.
However, if they cannot attend, we understand, and will still work with them and communicate our thoughts and recommendations.
