Racecourse Physiotherapy Clinic at your Service
Our aim is to provide friendly, effective physiotherapy services of the highest quality to assist with recovery and to help you achieve the best possible treatment outcome.
ACC Provider. No Referral Necessary.
At Racecourse Physiotherapy Clinic your wellbeing is our focus. We care about our patients and have a hands-on approach to treatment. Patients come to us by word-of-mouth, or as referrals from Specialists, Doctors, ACC Case Managers, Workplace Insurers and other Health Professionals who value our integrity, commitment to excellence, service and knowledge.
Qualified physiotherapist and acupuncturist Maria Sorensen and her friendly team provide effective professional physiotherapy services aimed at getting patients back to full mobility and optimum function and preventing future injuries.
We treat sports- and work-related injuries, provide individually tailored exercise routines and post-operative rehabilitation in our well-equipped on-site gymnasium.
Whether it’s the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries, chronic pain management, treating long-term conditions like headaches, muscle imbalance or postural problems, we have the knowledge and experience to help you achieve the best possible treatment outcomes.
Effective physiotherapy to ‘get people moving pain-free again’ has been Maria Sorensen’s passion for more than 35 years.
After qualifying at the Otago School of Physiotherapy, she gained invaluable experience working in hospitals and physiotherapy practices in Dunedin and Christchurch for many years.
Maria’s special interest is chronic pain management, a skill that she developed at Burwood Hospital in Christchurch.
As a physiotherapist and the holder of a Post Graduate Certificate in Acupuncture, Maria uses a multi-faceted approach to her treatment regime to get patients back to their physical best.
In the year 2000, Maria Sorensen established the Racecourse Physiotherapy Clinic close to Riccarton Racecourse, with the aim of providing the local community with quality physiotherapy and related services.
Eight years later she relocated the practice to the current modern treatment facility in Sockburn, where the team uses the latest techniques, technology and its extensive experience to care for patients from all walks of life with a wide variety of conditions. By consistently providing friendly, efficient and effective services, Racecourse Physiotherapy Clinic has become the preferred physiotherapy provider to patients, doctors and medical insurers in the area and farther afield. To ensure that its clients receive the latest treatments and guidance, Racecourse Physiotherapy Clinic is committed to the ongoing professional development of its staff. In terms of service excellence, the team embraces individual beliefs and values to promote health and the best long-term outcomes for patients.
