Fully ACC accredited, our therapists offer a strong manual therapy approach. Working one-on-one with your therapist, you will learn the underlying mechanics behind your injury and your treatment. After an assessment, we will develop a specific individual rehabilitation plan to get you proactive again and prevent recurrence of your injury.
ACC Stay at Work Programmes & Vocational Rehabilitation
We work with ACC and employers to assess clients and provide early intervention and rehabilitation programmes. They are individually designed to help an injured person return to work safely, quickly and sustainably.
At Proactive Physio we offer acupuncture and dry needling in conjunction with our physiotherapy services. Known to stimulate the body’s own healing processes and increase blood flow, acupuncture is an accepted treatment under the ACC system and can be a valuable tool in a multi-disciplinary approach to managing an injury. All our therapists who do needling hold certificates and qualifications and keep up to date with the latest research as new studies and clinical trials confirm the benefits of this ancient technique.
Core Stability & Circuit Classes
Part of our comprehensive approach to care, we believe that prevention is better than cure. Proactive Physio offer a range of core strengthening classes and circuits with a schedule that provides both daytime and evening appointments to suit Queenstown’s busy professionals. These small group classes emphasize strengthening the body’s core muscle groups to improve overall function, posture, and health whether you’re recovering from an injury or hoping to prevent the next one.
More than just an indulgence, we believe massage can be a key treatment to address soft tissue injuries and dysfunctions in the body’s muscles and connective tissue. We offer a variety of massage options from deep tissue therapeutic massage to pre- and post-event sports massage. A greater sense of wellbeing and increased body awareness are just two of the many benefits you will gain by having regular massage.
Part of our work within the ACC system is orthopaedic rehab for both pre- and post-surgical patients. Our physios have extensive experience with preparing patients for orthopaedic surgery and guiding them through the process. We are strong believers in “prehab” and getting the body as fit as possible before an operation to reduce recovery time and increase the chances of a complete recovery. You want to return to your sports and activities as soon as possible and we want to help you get there. We can order x-rays and ultrasound scans, then refer to orthopaedic specialists if you require or you are seeking further assistance.
Every individual golfer has their own signature as they pass energy through their body to the club head. We can work with you to analyze your body and swing to optimise your body for golf at any age and ability level. As PGA Certified golf physios, we can assist you with physical conditioning and work with your golf pro to develop a programme that suits your individual needs. We also offer group sessions for junior and experienced golfers.
