Support for sport
As Kiwis know too well, sports practice sometimes comes with some amount of pain.
Good pain means that you’re working your muscles right, building up the power you need to perform at your peak. Bad pain means that an injury has occurred or is about to.
First rule of bad pain: do not wait! Focus Health has dedicated sports physiotherapists who assist with recovery, prevention as well as tailored fitness programs.
Our physiotherapist Alex Gairdner provides dedicated golf fitness and biomecanical assessment services for those who want to get back to or improve their game.
Pre and post surgery rehab
Although surgery is sometimes the only effective way to address certain medical problems, it also has a considerable impact on the patient.
Post-operative patients may suffer from discomfort and reduced mobility. Any surgery requiring a general anesthetic may have an effect on the respiratory system too.
Pre and post-operative physiotherapy helps speed recovery, contributes to pain management and allows patients to regain function faster.
Our association with the Royston Private Hospital and Specialist Centre means we are very experienced in the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients before and after their orthopaedic surgery.
The hand is an especially complex part of our body, with many bones and even more ligaments, tendons and muscles in between. And that's why hand therapy requires specialised treatment.
Our in-demand physio Ross Simmons specialises in the treatment of hand, elbow and forearm injuries.
Ross has Post-Graduate Qualifications in Hand Therapy / Splint Fabrication. He works
from Focus Health’s Hastings clinic at the Royston Centre and our Te Mata clinic in Havelock North.
Like any muscle, those of the pelvic floor can be damaged or weakened, leading to problems such as incontinence and pain - for both men and women.
Weakness is the most common issue. For men, this can happen after prostate surgery. For women, it is usually related to childbirth, but menopause is also a factor.
Focus Health offer women’s health and pelvic floor rehabilitation services using computerised biofeedback managed by specialist physiotherapist Jolene Smith.
