Counties Manukau Health Physiotherapy Services

Public Service


7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.


Physiotherapists help people move and participate in life and in their communities, especially when movement and function are threatened by ageing, injury, disability or disease.

Physiotherapists are involved in health promotion, injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. 

After assessing a person’s potential for movement and function, the physiotherapist establishes (together with the person, whanau/family and caregivers) treatment goals designed to restore or develop that potential, and then maintain it.

The physiotherapy process involves assessment, diagnosis, planning, intervention, treatment or rehabilitation.

Physiotherapy Services are provided across a variety of sites and settings in Counties Manukau e.g. Allied Health, Spinal Rehabilitation Unit, AT&R Unit, Kidz First Child Development and community teams from Howick to Pukekohe.


7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Mon – Fri 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Late clinics are available for some conditions.
