Students at Avonside have a wealth of opportunities to become involved in sport. Many recreational activities are available as well as the regular interschool competitions. At the competitive level we have individuals and teams achieving considerable success.
Avonside Girls’ High provide a physiotherapy service for students and staff on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Sick Bay. Appointments can be made in the Hauora Centre with Ms Cooper or online at www.balancephysiotherapy.co.nz
Physiotherapy provided at school means less academic time lost and no travel costs or time. You can get early treatment of your injuries and have less time out of the sport or activities you are involved with.
Sharada Stewart from Balance Physiotherapy has a Master’s degree in Sports Physiotherapy and is experienced in sports physiotherapy and injury management in the adolescent age group. We can also consult with coaches and PE staff to help you get the correct level of activity as you recover. There is no need to be referred by a doctor but if the physiotherapist feels a GP or specialist needs to be consulted or X-rays taken, she can organise this at assessment. Get treated early for a good recovery!
ACC still subsidise accident-related physiotherapy treatment and we can initiate your ACC claim for you. The co-payments are $34.00 for initial injury assessment and $30.00 for follow-up treatments. Holders of a CSC are eligible for a discounted rate of $30 initial and $28 follow-up, evidence of CSC must be provided with consent to receive this discount. These co-payments may be claimed on Private Health insurance; check your policy. We also treat non-ACC cases.
