DIRECTOR AND PRINCIPAL PHYSIOTHERAPIST
Amy is the founder and principal physio at Surgical Rehab Specialists.
Amy graduated with a BHSc (Physiotherapy) in 2011. Since then she has worked in the musculoskeletal field, and has developed a strong interest in diagnostics, biomechanics, sports-specific physiotherapy and surgical rehabilitation. After seeing a need for patients to be provided with quality care before and after surgery, Surgical Rehab Specialists was born.
Amy has dedicated a lot of her time and learning in the area of surgical management - having spent hours observing Auckland's top surgeons at work and reviewing their rehabilitation protocols. Amy has carried out extensive post-graduate training in dry needling, as well as achieving her Certified Mulligan Practitioner qualification.
Outside of work, Amy is a competitive horse rider in Showjumping and Eventing. She also enjoys keeping fit at the gym, and is a keen foodie, as well as loving a drop of wine. She is Head Coach at her local pony club, and enjoys helping people in any way she can.
Patrick is a high-performance, sports-specific physiotherapist. Having done Gymnastics at a high level for 15 years of his life; 2 Commonwealth Games and 5 World Championships later, he ended up getting a pretty good idea of what the human body is capable of, as well as what happens when the body decides to fail.
Patrick graduated from AUT in 2011, with a BHSc (Physiotherapy), then continued on to post graduate study in Acupuncture and gained CMP status. Patrick has recently returned to New Zealand, after a 2 year stint in London. During that time, he increased his experience in sports medicine, working in various sports physiotherapy practices. Patrick was the New Zealand physiotherapist at the recent Rio Olympic Test Event.
Patrick has a great passion for all things sports, particularly high-level rehabilitation and fixing all those annoying little niggles we all have to live through. Patrick is also an avid beer and wine enthusiast.
