About Us

Founded in 2002 Sports Therapy is located in a purpose-built clinic @132 Collingwood Street. We are open from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday to cater to before work/school and after work/school schedules.

Call 548 1221 to book.

We use functional, high–end rehabilitation techniques to treat musculoskeletal conditions from annoying aches and pains to acute injuries. We work with patients in our large and sunny gym and ⁄ or one of our 9 private treatment rooms to develop individually tailored, activity–specific treatments.

Priding ourselves on education as we go, we focus on teaching our clients WHY their injuries occur, what factors may have contributed to the incident and what we need to work together on to reduce their pain and dysfunction.

Where we feel we make the most difference is in identifying future goals and helping clients meet these through functional strength, biomechanical movement corrections, muscle balancing and activity specific drills that help prepare and simulate the challenges that lie ahead for their injured tissues.

Our therapists have a wide variety of skills (acupuncture, Kinesio strapping, manipulative treatments, massage therapy/soft tissue mobilizations, neural mobilizations etc), which we share regularly whether through co–consultations, in–services, or clinical workshops.

Through this commitment to excellence we have managed to become an integral part in supporting and working within the professional sports scene; both in Nelson and for visiting sporting teams. We sponsor a number of different community teams and individual athletes, helping them to reach their full potential.  Our physios look after the Nelson College First XV and also the Stoke Rugby Club Division 1 team.

Come and have a look! We would love to meet you.
