Waltham Physiotherapy is a small Physiotherapy Clinic offering you an affordable, professional service. It is located in the Waltham Health Centre at 81 Waltham Road, Waltham.
If your injury is covered by ACC, a small surcharge will apply, and ACC will cover the rest. Private rates apply to injuries that are not caused by an accident or not covered by ACC. We are able to process an ACC claim if you hurt yourself doing something that classifies as an accident.
Pain and injury limit ones quality and enjoyment of life. It adds an unnecessary stress to your day and we are committed to help you manage your injury and to see results.
Doing normal everyday movements incorrectly often cause us as much trouble as a one-off injury caused by doing an abnormal movement. Most people with pain and injury can benefit from Physiotherapy.
