Physiotherapist Pain Management


Permanent/Part Time

Are you a Physiotherapist with musculoskeletal expertise and at least two years experience supporting people to effectively manage persistent pain?

Are you looking for a part-time role (16 hours per week)?

The Hutt Valley DHB team includes a Specialist Doctor, Psychologist, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and an amazing Team Assistant.

Currently we take referrals only for ACC clients under the community services contract. Part of this role will include key working ACC clients, completing initial assessments for the accident related effects of pain and keeping an eye on how we are using our funding as we progress the client towards effective self management.

Our Physiotherapists design individual exercise and treatment plans, delivered in an individual or group setting within the gym or hydrotherapy pool. We are a small but supportive team, meeting together weekly to discuss the needs of clients and how best to support their progress towards a better quality of life.

This means you will always have the opportunity to discuss the influence of any psychological or medical issues on your client's progress and be able to link physical recovery to team plans for wider functional participation.
