About Us

Capital Sports Medicine is one of the largest multidisciplinary rehabilitation clinics in New Zealand.  It was founded over 25 years ago with just one Physiotherapist, one Sports Doctor and one Podiatrist. Word quickly spread and it didn’t take long before the clinic started to expand, this growth continuing to evolve through the years creating the accomplished team we have today.  All whilst still holding onto the basic values that were established all those years ago.

Our Mission

We do everything we can to get you back to doing the things you love.  We accomplish this through:

  • Early and accurate diagnosis of your injury
  • Provide the best treatment based on experience, evidence and best practice
  • Ensure you have the knowledge and skills to maintain strength and fitness during rehabilitation and prevent further injury.

Our Philosophy

We exist to add value to people’s lives
We strive to pass on our knowledge and ensure you know what is going on with your injury/body. We take the time to explain things in a way that works for you.

We only employ people we want to have around for a BBQ
Our workplace is an environment where employees can be themselves, think big, have fun, and do good.

We work as a team across disciplines
Your experience and our success is dependent upon our collective energy, intelligence, and the contributions of all of our staff.

We value you and your family/whanau as the integral part of your care team.
We believe in treating everyone with respect and value the cultural and individual values that you and your family/whanau bring to your team.

Our Commitment To Quality Service

Before treatment begins your doctor or therapist will carry out a thorough assessment of your condition.

Some treatments may have risks associated with them so it’s very important that you tell your therapist if you are:

  • pregnant
  • have a pacemaker or artificial implants of any nature,
  • have AIDS or Hepatitis,
  • are on any long term medications
  • have any chronic or serious health problem.

The diagnosis will be explained to you and the treatment options and probable outcomes discussed.  You have the right to refuse part or all of the treatment that is offered to you.

You also have the right to a second opinion. Please discuss this with your therapist or doctor. We will be happy to arrange this for you.

We encourage family members to be present when we are treating children under 16 years of age.

All information recorded in your health records will be kept confidential. Under the Privacy Act, you have the right of access to, and correction of, your personal information held by us.

No information will be given to a third party without your written permission.
