Central Lakes Physio & Pilates was established in Wanaka in 2007 and was purchased by current owner Vicky Hill in 2015. It has grown to attract exceptional physiotherapists and has established an excellent reputation in the local community.
Central Lakes Physio Wanaka is located in spacious premises with great parking on Gordon Road, Wanaka, this also includes our Pilates studio. Due to the popular demand we expanded to include a more central satellite clinic based at Proactive Gym on Plantation Road, Wanaka.
We pride ourselves in having long appointment times so that we can really listen to you and make sure you never feel rushed. We also think that education is really important – if you understand what is going on with your body then you can work with us to help yourself get better.
We are fortunate to have a wide range of clients including builders, elite athletes, mountain bikers, farme
rs, mums, children, the elderly and so much more. This variety means we look at every body as an individual and think outside the box to problem solve and get our clients back to doing whatever it is they love to do.
A major focus of our business is injury prevention in the community. That is why we work with local companies, such as New World, to offer manual handling education to staff. We also work closely with the ACC, employers and employees to get people back into the workforce if an injury does occur and run ACC return to work contracts.
We love Wanaka and are keen to educate this special community on how they can get the most out of life and avoid coming to see us. We are happy to talk with any local community groups to see how we can help out.
Physio & Pilates Testimonials
Central Lakes Physiotherapy really helped me recover quickly from two injuries.
In the first session she really spent a lot of effort getting to the exact problem and communicated to me very clearly which helped me understand what was going on.
Then her treatment sessions were very hands on and very effective. Way above the average physio and highly recommended.
Over the last 4 months I would like to thank you for taking me to the “edge of pain” and it certainly did work. I was very surprised at the strength you have in those small hands of yours, but I always did feel better after the work you did on me. I was also pleased with the new techniques you tried out on my shoulder which did make a difference.
One of the best things you did for me was to keep at me about doing my exercises and I am very thankful to you for all you have done.
I think you are the best Physio ever. Thanks again.
Over the past two years I have undergone extensive and extremely invasive surgery. Thanks to the wonderfully friendly and supportive team at Central Lakes Physio I am now able to return to the sports and activities which were my life; a life which I thought had been ruined by pain.
Now that I have a greater understanding of how to pace and grade my recovery and although there have been times when I have felt down, due to the guidance, friendliness, care and understanding of the Central Lakes Team, I can now see some light at the end of the tunnel.
I have great respect for everyone at Central Lakes Physio. They are doing a great job.
From the moment I stepped into Central Lakes Physio I felt at home, such a welcoming, personal atmosphere!
My physio provided an excellent, balanced treatment for me.
It was great to have the extended time, and I felt genuine interest.
I was also impressed with other physiotherapists, gym instructors, and of course, receptionists!
I highly recommend Central Lakes Physio.
