Physiotherapy at Shirley Boys

Clare Cooper —

In conjunction with Balance Physiotherapy, Shirley Boys High School provides a physiotherapy service on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Sick Bay.

Appointments can now be made online at www.balancephysio.co.nz or can be made at the Shirley Boys’ High School Sick Bay with Clare Cooper.

All students and staff members are able to access physiotherapy directly. Physiotherapy provided at school means less academic time lost and no travel costs or time. You can get early treatment of your injuries and have less time out of the sport or activities you are involved with.

Sharada Stewart from Balance Physiotherapy is experienced in sports physiotherapy and injury management in the adolescent age group. Her company works in other schools throughout Christchurch. We can also consult with coaches and PE staff to help you get the correct level of activity as you recover. There is no need to be referred by a doctor but if the physiotherapist feels a GP or specialist needs to be consulted or x-rays taken, she can organise this at assessment. Get treated early for a good recovery!

ACC subsidise accident-related physiotherapy treatment and we can initiate your ACC claim for you. The first ACC assessment is $25.00, then $25.00 per treatment thereafter. We also treat non-ACC cases and Muscle Balance Assessments are also available. Payment is due on the day unless otherwise arranged. These co-payments may be claimed on Private Health insurance, check your policy.
