Your Licensed Physiotherapist In Auckland

The licensed, trusted neurological physiotherapy practice of Kate Hedges is situated in Greenlane, Auckland. Kate aims to provide a friendly and warm environment for all clients whilst promoting the neurodevelopment/coordination of children (neuro-paediatrics) and the rehabilitation of adults. Play, communication, self-care skills and recreation are all part of an integrated approach that involves specific assessment of a person, so that treatment or management can be customised specifically for them.

Customised Physiotherapy 

An individual assessment and customised physiotherapy treatment plan will be offered for each child or adult alongside a home and photo programme. This will assist the carer/person as to what is important to do and demonstrate how to do the activities at home. Sessions are usually one hour with 'hands on' treatment or handling given to guide the client to move, play or do an activity more easily. However the goal, where possible is to get the therapist/carer's 'hands off' so the client becomes more active and independent.

Use of equipment such as splints may be used to help aid function. Family focused sessions are also provided, teaching parents and care-givers how they might assist a child or adult so there is a carryover of function into daily life.

Home Physiotherapy Visits

Whilst the Kate Hedges physiotherapy practice is situated in Auckland, Kate will also visit clients at home or in other settings where necessary. Kate will also liaise with other therapists such as Occupational or Speech Language Therapists if required. 

Consultations with a client and/or with other therapists or key workers are also available. The physiotherapy practice is independently owned and operated, and Kate Hedges is a certified NZ registered physiotherapist (NZRP). Sessions are available by appointment, phone or email.

About The Therapy

A main goal of therapy is to assist children and adults to become more active and independent in their daily lives. Evidence suggests that early therapy takes advantage of neuroplasticity and opens up new pathways in the brain so that the child or adult’s functional potential can be reached. 

Kate Hedges physiotherapy takes a holistic approach and aims to improve posture, movement and sensory-motor development within their ability level so daily tasks: roll over, sit up, sit to stand, using arms and hands, pull to stand, walk, eat /dress, steps, playground activities, can be assisted. As a result, more participation in the community may occur.
