Whangarei Physio and Hand Therapy has a long history of working with Athletes of all levels to recover from injury and get the most out of their sport. Our well-qualified and experienced team is passionate about sport and our aims are to not only help you recover as soon as possible but to perform better and also prevent injury in the future.

Sports physiotherapy is a specialist field. There is a large volume of research emerging related to different sports and sporting injuries. Each sport and each individual role has a multitude of demands specific to each individual athlete. Our role is to bring this all together combined with a thorough assessment to offer a rehab plan tailored to you.

We currently provide physiotherapy to Northland age group Hockey, as well as Northland Woman’s and Northland age group, Kamo and Mid Northern club rugby teams. We also work with a huge variety of sports not exclusive to netball, rugby league, multisport, cricket, tennis, golf, basketball and athletics and distance running.

We also work closely with individuals training for health and wellness and simply wanting to get the best out of their body. We have close relationships with members from Kensington Fitness, Base Body NZ, F45 and Dean Baker PT.
