About Churchyard Physiotherapy

At Churchyard Physiotherapy we are great at treating injuries but more than that we take a proactive approach to sporting performance and wellbeing for great quality of life.

In addition to injury management we will go over with you injury prevention strategies and how to improve your performance. We take the time to find out from you what your goals are and then plan our rehab around them to get you back to doing what you want to do!

Churchyard Physiotherapy has expanded in 2014, now in bigger brighter rooms (in the same building tho! With the entrance now off Ashely St). Our building is now known as Churchyard Health and the really exciting development has been that we now have Manawatu Hand Therapy and Resonance Podiatry sharing the space with us making it a one stop shop for our clients.

Fiona O’Connor leads the Physiotherapy team and along with Kathryn, Sheree, Claire (and 2 more soon to be appointed!) look forward to seeing you at La Femme 2015.
