Our Clinic

The Physio Institute is a sports injury clinic set up to diagnose, educate and treat the people of the extended Nelson area. We have a fully equipped rehabilitation gym, specialised Pilates equipment, multiple professional treatment rooms, and plenty of parking. 

Gym Based Rehabilitation

With a fully equipped rehabilitation gym on site, The Physio Institute provides access to the latest in rehabilitation equipment. We provide strengthening, balance, and flexibility programmes in addition to Pilates and exercise prescription. 

Manual Therapy

Our Physiotherapists have postgraduate qualifications making them experts in hands on manual therapy. This includes mobilisations, manipulations, and massage.  


The reformer is a specialised Pilates apparatus that uses springs, leverage and body weight to add resistance to the movement performed to target key muscle groups. The sliding carriage enables muscles and joints to be taken through their entire range, combining flexibility and strength.

Acupuncture / dry needling

In addition to traditional Physiotherapy, our Physiotherapists have completed postgraduate training in Western Acupuncture and dry needling. This form of therapy is highly efficient at reducing pain, increasing muscle function, and promoting healing.
