It means we are experts in treating the musculoskeletal system consisting of your muscles, joints, nerves and fascia (your connective tissue!)  We are experienced at treating a vast array of conditions. We treat all of your spinal back and neck pain through to all of your sprains and strains.

We service Parklands and throughout Christchurch.

Pre & Post Operative Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy prior to surgery eg rotator cuff repair, total knee or hip replacement provides you with optimal muscle strength and an understanding of what you can expect post-surgery. Recovery times and outcomes from surgery have shown to improve with good pre surgery strength. 

At Body Wise Health our physiotherapists are experts in post-surgical rehabilitation. We will tailor make rehabilitation exercise programs to help you achieve your goals whether it be getting back to work, getting back to sport or simply being pain free walking again. We have access to gym facilities at Anytime Fitness Shirley allowing us to  support and work along side you providing our high quality rehabilitation.
