Auckland physiotherapy, sports massage and rehabilitation treatment
Velca’s experienced physiotherapists can provide accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment plans to get you back on your feet. Based on the latest research, we combine both hands-on techniques and exercise-based rehabilitation to treat a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.
During our initial consultation, you will receive a thorough assessment, followed by a detailed explanation of your condition.
We’ll then prescribe a personalised plan combining follow-up appointments, suggestions for lifestyle changes, and remedial exercises you can perform at home. These self-management exercises will not only provide relief between visits, but also help in preventing further injury.
As an ACC registered clinic, we can offer subsidised physiotherapy treatment, with no referral necessary. Simply fill out the appropriate forms when you attend your appointment at Velca.
How physiotherapy can benefit you
Physiotherapy aims to restore function and independence in people who have a condition caused by physical, neurological or cardio-respiratory disorders. Through a combination of massage, exercise and mobilisation, physiotherapy can improve mobility, functional ability, and overall quality of life.
Physiotherapy can help a range of injuries and conditions, including:
Relieve – Rehabilitate – Prevent
Our physiotherapists will not only provide immediate relief from symptoms, but treat the underlying cause of your problem. Combiningrehabilitation and prevention techniques, we deliver a high level of care to our patients, and consistently produce excellent results.
Your treatment might involve a number of techniques, including:
Soft tissue massage – Soft tissue massage targets the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues. Utilising a range of depths and pressures, this technique can provide relief from pain and assist in muscular rehabilitation.
Deep tissue massage – Targeting the deeper connective tissue, this technique focuses on loosening muscles, releasing toxins, and increasing blood and oxygen circulation. Many people find this technique provides immediate relief from pain and tension.
Remedial exercises – After your session, your therapist will prescribe some remedial exercises that you can perform at home. These stretching and strengthening exercises will help you to prevent further injury, and maintain your physical wellbeing in the long-term.
Injury rehabilitation – Velca can provide specialised treatment for sports injuries, post-surgical rehabilitation, occupational overuse syndrome, and other conditions. Using a combination of techniques, our therapists will devise a targeted treatment plan for you.
Joint mobilisation – Using targeted manipulation and repetitive movement techniques, Velca’s trained and experienced therapists can restore full joint motion, release muscle spasms, stimulate joints and provide relief from pain.
