Hi all. So er indoors popped her achilles just over 6 weeks ago. Following 6 weeks in a cast/moon boot she now needs to see a physio. At the hospital they just gave us a form and said to use any physio. I am very keen for her to get better asap ( 6 weeks with a wife on crutches!) so can anyone in GZland recommend a good physio in Christchurch? TIA, Paul

Hi there

I would recommend Richard Hopkins at Physiotherapy Associates on Wainoni Rd. Richard is an excellent physio with many many years of experience. I know many people who have seen him and all are very impressed with him.

One thing to bear in mind is that some physios will charge you a fee and some will not.  My wife broke both her ankles in October and gets charged $30 each physio visit.

With the National Government forcing ACC to cut their funding to Physiotherapy, all physiotherapy consultations will have some sort of surcharge. I guess you pay for what you get. If you want someone who is really good, you will pay more compared to someone who is not good or has just graduated and has very little experience.

I went to Lindsay Jago on North Avon Rd in Richmond after I injured my back. He's quite good, $10 charge if it's ACC and you can usually get an appointment within 24 hours.
