On the Go Physio is Christchurch's leading physiotherapy team for Older Adults. We can see you in our brand new, purpose built clinic, visit you in your own home or residential care facility. Passionate about the health and wellbeing of older adults, and with years of experience we can help you stay independent and safe, rehabilitate from injury or maximise life with a variety of health conditions. We look forward to your call!
"Our experience with On the Go could not have been better. Their team is professional as well as friendly. They have not just helped my brother walk again, but they have also helped him regain his place in life. Their knowledge about and referral to the other services he needed, such as orthotics and occupational therapy was invaluable. They were even able to help us access some of the services we were entitled to from the DHB. We would be glad to recommend On the Go Physio to others."

"I am delighted with all that you have achieved for Dad. He was always a good walker and felt lost without his mobility.
He was 17 weeks off his feet and basically had to learn to walk again. Rebecca has worked with Dad both physically and mentally to get him to where he is today - walking reasonably confidently with a frame. Brilliant result for him and for us.
Rebecca has reported his progress to us on a regular basis and she has been a delight to deal with.
She is now working alongside the Nurses to ensure that Dad's walks are kept up, so that he continues to get strong and improve.

Thank you for all you have done."

"The “ on the go” physio team have been marvelous- efficient and easy to deal with and a great support to the continued well being of my mother"

Service Description
Service Description
On the Go Physio provides specialist physiotherapy care to older adults and people with neurological conditions within the Canterbury region. We offer home or clinic visits and hold contracts in several aged care facilities. Our physios are highly skilled, experienced and dedicated to the health of older adults and are passionate about helping people get to their highest level of function. We can work alongside care staff and families, or simply with our clients themselves to form clear goals and then work hard to achieve them! Examples of people we often work with include - people with Parkinson's, people who have had a stroke, people who have had hip or knee surgery, people who have lost their mobility/confidence or who are becoming frail.

For aged care facilities we offer contracted physiotherapy services and currently provide 95 hours of physiotherapy per week in the Canterbury region. We are also leading national providers of moving and handling training - offering updates as well as popular 'train the trainers' - supporting your staff to become leaders themselves. We support a systems based approach to training, working closely with your clinical and village manager to ensure training is well embedded into your workplace.

We are so excited! After a longer than intended trial phase we are finally able to get Whoa to Go out to the world. Whoa to Go is an evidenced based group exercise programme designed to be run in aged care facilities. Currently we see some really fun exercise groups run in our communities, they promote social engagement and quality of life BUT if they aren't challenging and progressing strength and balance then they are not impacting on falls rates. The evidence is overwhelming and we are delighted to be able to condense this into a consumer friendly, ready to go package for our facilities. Send us your diversional therapists, physio assistants and any current care staff who have a base understanding of exercise and are confident with groups. We will send them back trained, enthusiastic and ready to make a huge difference to your residents! Register here https://onthegophysio.co.nz/whoa-to-go-training/
