Conditions treated include respiratory, neurosurgical, musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and sports injuries.

Home visits are available for mobility assessments, e.g. walking frames and wheelchair assessments.

ACC patients can self-refer. Otherwise a referral letter from your GP or other health professional is required.
