GoPhysio’s team of experienced Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists enjoy working in multidisciplinary teams. We welcome the referral of your patients and will take good care of them to ensure the best possible health outcomes.

There are three types of referrals health professionals can make including:

Clinic (ACC and Private)

As an ACC accredited provider, we can submit ACC claims on behalf of your patients and ensure their recovery is managed appropriately. With a strong focus on individualised care, our services cater to a wide range of conditions including musculoskeletal injuries, sports-related injuries, chronic pain management, neurological disorders and post-operative rehabilitation. Our team of physios use a range of tools and treatment methods including manual therapy, stretching and strengthening programmes and more. Our goal is to get patients back doing what they love, quickly.

Return to work

Return to work physiotherapy, also known as occupational rehabilitation, focuses on helping individuals recover from injuries or conditions and return to their work activities. It is designed to facilitate a safe and successful transition back into the workforce while promoting optimal physical function and preventing re-injury.
