Physiotherapy and the McKenzie method

20-02-2017

Enjoy an introduction to Davide, his experience and qualifications, focusing on his expertise in the field of the McKenzie method and what sets it apart as a mode of diagnosis and treatment.

Davide will explore:

  1. The main causes of back pain 

  2. How the spine works (movement wise)

  3. The concepts of McKenzie Method

  4. What I do (live demonstrations)

  5. How people can benefit from my help

If you're affected by an injury, disability or health condition, Physiotherapy works to restore movement and function using proven methods and techniques. With their knowledge of how the human body works, they can also help you reduce your medication, avoid surgery, manage pain and reduce the risk of injuries.

McKenzie method is globally recognized as a leading treatment for back, neck and extremities disorders. The McKenzie based Physiotherapy sessions we offer are longer than some others in town but makes the most out of your time. Sports or Kinesio Taping come at NO extra cost and we have a range of equipment you can purchase for home use.

We've Relocated!

06-01-2017

The lower end of Tory street has been riddled with disruption around the demolition of the Wilson's carpark building after the earthquake on Nov 14th. Check out our Facebook page if you want to see regularaly updated pics and short video clips of the demolition.

We were in and out of our Tory street location 3 times in the end and the third time was for 'at least 3 months.' During this extremely uncertain and tiring process and combined with the end of year we've said goodbye to a few of our staff members like Bianca Andrews and Samantha Batchelar while others are doing less hours.

While looking for a temporary premises to relocate to we stumbled across the old Courtenay Medical site at Level 1 36 Allen Street.  We're above the BNZ on Courtenay Place and you'll find ample parking around, it was as though this site was purpose built for us. Already divided into 3 treatment rooms and an ample staff room plus the most divine and professional looking reception area. All the rooms are pre-fitted with running water and air conditioning units and once we've given it a bit of a face-lift with new paint this place will feel like we've been here for years already and whats more - no more low cielings!! Our Physiotherapist Davide Castorina is dancing for joy at being able to conduct a consultation unhindered by cieling height and although *some of us will miss feeling taller than we really are, we think this is a pretty good thing!  We're excited about the downsize and the new location and all of us that are left are ready for a high-energy 2017!

Our new space feels professional and spacious without feeling too open and is noticably quieter than our Tory Street location. We've very excited to show you around so click the link at the top of the page and make your next booking today.
