Carla Standen



Bachelor of Physiotherapy


Carla graduated from Otago University in 2001 with a Physiotherapy Degree. Since then, she has worked in hospital settings in both New Zealand and the UK for 12 years and at Active Plus since 2013. Carla enjoys variety! She strives to continually upskill across as many Physiotherapy disciplines as possible.

As an accomplished musician, Carla especially enjoys working with fellow musos, and has a special interest in treating overuse injuries in musicians – bring your instrument and lets get it sorted! Carla enjoys spending time with her husband and two boys, plays hockey and can easily be distracted with gardening.


Her diverse work experience scope has allowed Carla to develop a broad range of Physiotherapy skills, with wide experience in Neurology, Vocational Rehabilitation, Paediatrics, Orthopaedics, Pain and Respiratory Physiotherapy. She has particular interests in Neurology (including concussion management) and Rehabilitation (especially rehabilitation of post-amputation clients). Carla enjoys equipping clients to improve their quality of life.
