Making a difference in people's lives

The Lifestyle Physiotherapy Approach

Most patients come to us when they are injured or in pain. We offer a holistic approach and a range of options for treating your pain and addressing underlying issues. A comprehensive treatment plan allows you to get back on track quickly. We also focus on injury prevention to ensure that you can continue to enjoy your day to day life with a stronger, more balanced physiology

To best serve your holistic needs, we offer a range of services, including massage, mobilisation, manipulation, float therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine. We also offer a range of recovery and support tools, including strapping, ice packs, foam rollers and braces.

We treat a number of conditions including:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Pre and Post-Operative Management
  • Frozen shoulder

Lifestyle Physiotherapy is a registered health provider with ACC. You do not need a referral to be treated at our clinics. We are able to provide you with the forms and lodge your ACC claim from our clinic on your first visit. If you do have a referral form from your GP, please bring this with you. If ACC does not accept your claim, you will be charged for the full cost of treatment. Our receptionists will help if you have any concerns regarding this.

A current ACC claim is required in order to see an Acupuncturist. This can be completed by a Physiotherapist, or GP.

Due to changes ACC made in 2009, we have a surcharge to cover the cost of your treatment. The charges are listed below.

There are small charges for materials used such as tape and theraband. This is not always required, and your physiotherapist will discuss this with you as needed.
