Queenstown Physiotherapy was established in 1977.
In 2003 it moved to its present site as part of the Queenstown Medical Centre. This gives us immediate access to doctors, radiology, and pharmacy. In 2019 we opened our Frankton clinic, located in the Ramada Building.
We pride ourselves on providing high quality and effective physiotherapy to the Queenstown community.
In our central Queenstown clinic we have physiotherapists and osteopaths providing a cohesive team who share knowledge and experience to ensure your optimum recovery. Our Frankton physios work closely with a visiting orthotist who can provide custom made braces for a variety of injuries and conditions.
We treat clients with a wide range of complaints from acute sprains and strains to the longstanding aches and pains that life brings. Whether you are a long time local or a traveler who has had too much fun in Queenstown, we have the skills and experience to help you.
At Queenstown Physiotherapy prevention is also an emphasis. We provide manual handling talks to local businesses and education sessions to local tourism activity companies. We are happy to share our knowledge and expertise to any local community group or business.

Do you want to get the most out of your riding? Paul will use video analysis to look at how you move on your bike and highlight any significant asymmetries which can make you prone to injury. Your bike will then be adjusted to fit you and your movement patterns to try to prevent injury and enhance performance. A biomechanical assessment will test those commonly used muscles in riding for weakness or tightness and from this Paul will provide you with an individualised exercise programme to help you reach your goals.
2 hour assessment $250
Do you have a hand, wrist, forearm or upper limb injury? Our physio Deborah can help. Her focus encompasses all hand, wrist, elbow and upper limb injuries and conditions, and she enjoys the specific challenges that accompany these.

If you need both exceptional physiotherapy and a compassionate, supportive clinician then Deborah is the physio for you.
The role of rehabilitation is becoming increasingly important in cancer care to help people stay physically and emotionally strong during and after treatment. There is a vast and growing amount of evidence illustrating that exercise rehabilitation is one of the best “medicines” people can take in addition to their standard cancer treatments. Research is showing the exercise can help to reduce the recurrence of cancer. PINC cancer rehab is suitable for any type of cancer and any stage from diagnosis, during and after chemo or surgery to many years after treatment has been completed. It is suitable for all ages, fitness levels and mobility. Our physio Anna has completed her PINC training and is passionate about providing this clientele with the tools to allow them to take control of their own recovery.

The vestibular system includes the organs in the inner ear and the areas of the brain that process information regarding vision and motion, and is crucial for maintaining balance and for the stability of gaze. People with vestibular disorders can experience a whole range of symptoms including vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, feelings of being off-balance, and strange disturbing sensations in their heads with head movements. Vestibular rehabilitation depends on the presenting symptoms and thorough examination. It focuses on improving those symptoms through a range of exercises for their balance, vision, and strength. There is a high level of evidence available demonstrating vestibular rehabilitation for treating dizziness to be safe, effective and relatively inexpensive. It is an excellent tool in enabling patients to fulfill their potential, increasing their physical activity levels and achieving their goals. If you experience vertigo, dizziness or imbalance vestibular physiotherapy can help you. Call and make an appointment with Beni.
Do you have any used rehabilitation aids lying around home that could be reused? We can now collect these at our Isle St clinic to be distributed and reused by people in need in the Pacific Islands in conjunction with the Lions Recycle for Sight programme. Put your old rehabilitation aids (moonboots, knee braces, wrist braces, etc) to a new use instead of sending them to landfill! Drop off your clean, reusable items to us at 9 Isle Street (no broken, dirty or unusable items please). For more information, give us a call on (03) 441 0580.
