Physiotherapy Canterbury


We all desire to move with ease and achieve our fitness and wellness objectives, whatever they may be. However, as individuals, we have unique body structures and differing perceptions of what's "normal".


When something doesn't feel right in your body, it can be unsettling and worrisome. Although injuries and illnesses can hinder us from accomplishing our goals, it's possible to recuperate and bounce back.


Our physiotherapists in Canterbury are dedicated to easing your pain and restoring normal movement patterns. At Eastside Physio, our objective is to alleviate pain, improve muscle and joint function, and enhance overall mobility, enabling you to lead a happier, healthier, and injury-free life.

Our Physiotherapy Treatment Process

At Eastside Physio, our primary emphasis is on developing customised treatment plans that are tailored to meet your unique needs and objectives. Regardless of your age or physical ability, we acknowledge and honour you as an individual, valuing and respecting your opinions as much as we do ours.


Throughout your treatment, you'll have ample time to ask questions and actively participate in the healing process. We collaborate with you to devise a recovery plan and establish strategies that will help you regain your health swiftly and securely.

  • 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.

Benefits Of Physiotherapy in Canterbury
Relieve Pain

Techniques used by our Canterbury physios aim to relieve pain by taking your individual body into account, incorporating therapies that are tailored to your specific injury or condition.

Restore Movement

Injuries and conditions may inhibit your movement and make you feel stiff and immobile. Physiotherapy may help to restore movement and function through targeted exercises.

Increase Mobility

Mobility may be increased through strengthening exercises, endurance training, and balance and falls prevention, helping to give you back as much independence as possible.

Speed Up Recovery

Recovering from an injury or illness can be difficult enough, especially if you’ve also had surgery. Regardless of your situation, physiotherapy may help speed up your recovery by targeting injured tissue and working on it to regain function, reduce aches and pains, and strengthen vulnerable areas. 

Prevent Injury

Many people engage in a Canterbury physiotherapist as a means to prevent possible injuries in the future.  Physiotherapy may aid in injury prevention by addressing your individual weaknesses.

Build Strength

We need strength to keep us performing at our best, whether that’s playing sport or moving around the house. Physiotherapy may help you to build strength where you need it most, such as the legs, arms, neck, back, and core, decreasing your risk of injuries and helping you to reach your goals.
