Physio Works Kapiti started in 2015 with a simple vision in mind - to deliver the best customer service and clinical care pathways for all our patients. Since then we have set about delivering our vision for how we believe a Physiotherapy service should be experienced.
Musculoskeletal injuries have the potential to cause pain and prevent us from performing at our daily best. Physiotherapy at Physio Works Kapiti encompasses an accurate assessment and diagnosis, effective treatment planning and the best rehabilitation to allow you to perform at your best.
