Your Local Physio Ashburton


Some people will search their whole lives for the 'perfect, effective treatment' to solve all their problems. We all strive to reach our fitness goals, enjoy unrestricted movement, and live lives free from damage. It's important to remember, however, that healthy living is going to be a unique journey for every individual. No two patients are the same, and something that may be normal for something else could be of major concern for you. That's why it is essential to find a recovery method that can be catered entirely to your physical health, your needs, and your goals.


You know yourself best. When something feels wrong, chances are you'll realise immediately. Whether there's an unsettling change in your health you wish to address or whether there is an injury or illness holding you back, you deserve to be able to bounce back. Physiotherapy provides a solution for countless individuals facing countless health obstacles. Sports physiotherapy, post surgical physiotherapy, and general care are all available to treat a broad range of conditions.

  • A thorough history is taken to establish the cause of your injury.

  • A detailed physical assessment is done to identify the extent (grade) of your injury. 

  • This is really important as we often see people who have failed “rehab” for a condition only to find that previous treatments were not appropriate for the grade of the injury.  

  • Expect to receive hands-on care designed to immediately reduce your pain and speed up the recovery process.

  • The factors contributing to your pain will be identified and you will learn exactly what you should be doing to help speed up your recovery.    

Tailored Recovery Program
  • The exercises prescribed are specific to your injury and your individual needs. 

  • Expect guidance from your treating physio to ensure that you are improving as fast as possible.

  • On completion of your treatment you will  be equipped with the tools and knowledge for self maintenance.

Shoulder Physiotherapy

Conditions We Treat

Lower Back Pain
Your spine and back are highly sensitive structures. With a physio appointment, you can address the underlying cause and get back to living life to the fullest. Eastside Physio can help treat conditions such as chronic back problems, acute strain, disc bulge, protrusion, or herniation.
Tendon Pain & Injury
Tendonitis is a nasty condition to live through. Seeking support from a healthcare provider is essential for the recovery process. As well as Achilles and Patella tendonitis, we can help treat tendon conditions such as plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff damage, and tennis or golfers elbow.
Hip & Pelvis Pain
Discomfort in your hips or pelvis can dramatically affect your movement and flexibility. We commonly treat various conditions in these areas, including SIJ, FAI (impingement), arthritis and joint replacement, hamstring tendonitis, stress fractures, adductor injuries, and more.
Knee Injury
Knee problems can affect everyone. If you engage in regular sports, particularly high-impact activities, you are especially at risk for knee damage. At our clinic we commonly help with post-operative knee rehab, meniscus damage, PFJ (Patella) damage, osteoarthritis, and recovery for the ACL, PCL, and MCL.
Ankle Pain & Injury
If you regularly engage in sports or high-impact physical activity, you are especially at risk for ankle conditions. We can help speed up recovery from damage to the ligament, compartment syndrome, calf strains, shin splints, and other ankle-related problems.
Shoulder Injury
When your shoulder function is limited, day-to-day life can become extremely challenging. Common shoulder conditions our physiotherapists will often treat include frozen shoulder, bursitis, dislocation, subluxation, rotator cuff tears, and sub-acromial impingement.

Benefits Of Physiotherapy

Pain Relief

Discomfort is often what brings you through our clinic doors. We will work to address all immediate symptoms to provide some much-needed relief.

Injury Prevention

Nobody wants recurring damage. If you’ve had an accident set you back, we won’t just be working toward recovery. Our goal is to prevent future damage or return of the same condition.

Increase Movement & Mobility

Losing your movement and mobility limits your ability to engage in even the simplest daily activities. With the right exercise techniques, you can regain mobility and flexibility.

Enhanced recovery

Getting back on your feet as soon as possible is the most common end goal for patients. If you’ve gone through a significant injury or are recovering from our surgery, our support can help you get back to regular health faster and better.

Build Strength

Losing strength as a result of sudden or gradual damage to your body is natural. With personal exercise recommendations and even classes at our facility, we can help you build back all that key strength.

Overall Health

Everyone deserves to live the fullest, best version of their life possible. Together, we will work toward increasing your quality of life and optimising your overall health by addressing all areas of your physical life.

Injury Prevention and Recovery at Eastside Physio

Our services go beyond short-term relief. When your body undergoes damage, it becomes more likely to repeat the same injury in the future. That's why we approach our recovery plans with a long-term mindset. We want to ease your discomfort and get you back on your feet while also offering advice and lifestyle changes to protect you for many years to come. Going through physiotherapy treatment with us is an investment in your ongoing health and well-being.
