About Us & Our Team

Physio NZ have fully accredited Primary Care practices that have been operating in the east of Christchurch for over 20 years with 12 of those years under the current management structure. We have grown our business over that time learning what works well (and what doesn’t!) in regard to services and our Team culture. We are continually advancing the systems in our innovative business to support all our staff so you can focus on the things that really make a difference to your Clients.

We have quarterly events as a team which have included scavenger hunts, clay pottery class, surfing lessons, Archery, Judo and even lawn bowls! Coming together as a Team to reflect and celebrate is something we love to do!

We pride ourselves in our goal orientated assessments and treatment plans, focusing on what really matters to our Clients. If you haven't tried this approach before, prepare to reframe what you've been taught so far!

We find Client's LOVE this approach... and so do our Staff as your job becomes so much more meaningful. If writing goals has always been a 'tick box' exercise...but helping people achieve their goals was always the real reason WHY you got in to Physio...then get in touch to learn more about how we do it and the results we get!

We believe in providing an evidence-based approach to our services and therefore have a high emphasis in CPD, training and coaching with a varied and engaging inservice schedule programme. In addition, we are dedicated to providing training and coaching weekly to our team members to ensure you excel in an area you are passionate about.

We use electronic records and ensure this is used effectively and efficiently so you get to spend more time ‘doing’. We also use electronic exercise programmes to improve compliance and effectiveness of treatment plans which our Clients love!

Here's what you'll get when you join the Physio NZ Team:

  • Coaching, training and CPD per year: We really value personal and professional development and have a weekly structure to support you. We have a strong Senior Team who value both Manual Therapy Skills AND Exercise prescription and we believe they compliment each other well. If you are concerned you aren't confident in one of these areas, we will tailor coaching with our Senior Team around this. An area you’d like to learn more about? Let us know and we’ll make every step to make that happen.

  • Full training and support: Every team member will go through a 6 week training programme to make sure you are fully confident in your role and environment. This includes our Goal Oriented Assessment and Re-Assessment training. We also provide, weekly, monthly and quarterly support to make sure you reach your goals. No more reviewing of annual goals that become irrelevant as they've been forgotten since the last annual review! 

  • Wide variety: We have honed in on services that truly reflect our values and focus on areas where we can help people achieve their goals....from Aged Care to Elite Athletes representing New Zealand! We have a number of contracts that align with this philosophy and help reduce barriers to their rehab plans. 

  • The Culture: We like to have a family vibe here at Physio NZ and as such strive to support you at work and in your personal lives however we can.

  • 10 minute gaps between each Client appointment PLUS admin time each day: We don't want our staff staying late each night to finish notes or do referrals. We therefore provide 10minutes between Clients to allow cleaning, ventilation, note writing and a breather so you're not rushing from Client to Client. We know that on occasion Clients need that extra few minutes when a curve ball is thrown in and you then have a little flexibility. In addition, we acknowledge the added admin our Physios need to do and add in admin time during the day to allow these essentials to get done in a timely way. It all comes down to balance!

  • Salary Position: You’ll have the security of a competitive salary matching the DHB MECA rates to appreciate the amazing work you do in helping our Clients and smashing your goals!

  • Yes to late nights: However only until 7pm on nights that suit you best. 2 maximum per week. Everyone finishes at 4pm on Fridays!

  • Vibrant and supportive Team: We have an amazing team of health professionals developing their own areas of interests with over 60 years of experience combined! We ensure we have time to liaise with each other to share ideas and problem solve.

  • Amazing growth prospects and long term career progression: We know that our team are keen to have new and exciting challenges and ensure we provide career progression through developing roles that can show case your skills!

Employee Testimonial

"I have worked for Physio NZ for the last 8 years and it has been a rewarding and enjoyable experience. The atmosphere in the clinics is friendly and supportive, with great team spirit. There is a strong emphasis on staff wellbeing as well as that of the client. The regular inservice training sessions are great for personal development and there are plenty of mentoring opportunities as well, to build skills and confidence particularly for more recently graduated staff.

The quarterly team events are a great opportunity to get everyone together and catch up. It has been good to be part of the growth of a business where I have felt my opinion has been respected and my contribution appreciated!" -Anne Owens, Senior Hand Therapist and Physiotherapist
