Giving you data so there isn't the guessing!

At Physio NZ, we understand that it is important for you to understand what is going on for you, where the weaknesses are, and if you're improving and on track to reaching your goals. 

We are using assessment technology called AxIT that provides specific data on strength and rate of force of specific areas of the body. Tests can be tailored to you, your activity goals and your area of weakness, so that you'll have confidence in your programmes and being able to return to your activities! 

If your Physiotherapist feels an AxIT assessment is appropriate for you, they will tailor this to your needs. You'll receive a report showing a graph of your results, and can show how you are getting on over time. 

Don't guess with your recovery! Let us show you exactly what to work on! 

What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is a degree based health care profession that advocates evidence based practice but ultimately works with people to assess and then intervention focuses on achievement of a patient specific functional goal.

Physiotherapists clinically assess and develop management strategies in partnership with the client. Physiotherapy aims to restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness, or disability and optimise physical well-being.
Physiotherapists use physical therapies such as exercise, manual therapies, posture control, as well as advice and education.

Physiotherapy assists recovery from physical or cognitive adversity caused by injury, disease or from any disability. Physiotherapy is also used to optimise physical performance and well-being. Physiotherapy takes a “whole person approach”, including a variety of cognitive management strategies that remove barriers to recovery or achieve optimal performance. Physiotherapy always involves a patient specific goal which generates the end point of the rehabilitation or treatment plan.
