Why Altius Healthcare

Our team is passionate about offering you a service you won't get anywhere else.
We are different than other providers because of the facilities we have access to, the staff we retain and what they believe in.

OUR APPROACH

Treat the cause not the symptoms. We believe in addressing all the factors that are contributing to your injury in order to help you understand, manage and maintain your health and fitness.

HANDS ON THERAPY

When a patient is in pain or after an injury has healed the body can react with muscle spasm, joint stiffness and scar tissue generation. We feel the most effective way to address this in clinic is through manual therapy techniques including deep tissue release, joint manipulation and stretching. We rarely use electrical machines and prefer to use our hands to help your body heal and to educate you in self management techniques to use at home, work or in the gym.

MOVEMENT AND EXERCISE REHAB

Through experience we see that when joints are in pain the muscles around the joint cannot work as effectively and so therefore the muscles can become weaker. If you aren’t taught specific exercises to recover your strength you may struggle to return to how you were pre-injury and you can then be prone to problems in the future.  We aim to educate you on how best to exercise and to support you through a rehab process.

OUTCOME DRIVEN

We want you to be motivated to get stronger and commit to a period of rehabilitation. We will make specific measurements so that we can chart your progress and decide when you are safe to return to what you want to do.

our-philosophy-is

We want our clients to recommend us to their friends and family. We want to be thought of by clinician’s as the best place to send their patients. We want our staff to be proud of the service they offer and the team that they are involved in.

  • Dan Brown: GT Factory Racing

    Sending my team of riders to Altius at MIHP has been invaluable for us as a team. Getting access to individuals like Doug Jones and Dr John Rogers for an assessment means we save time because we get the right diagnosis in the first place and therefore get our injuries managed properly from day one. The Altius staff and facilities at MIHP are a powerful offering and one that any serious pro team should consider if their athlete is injured or not performing to their potential

  • Simon Rimmer

    It was absolutely gutting to be told I couldn’t run again after my knee op. Pounding the streets three times a week was such a big part of my life for many years and to not be able to do it left myself and me personal trainer quite a gap to fill to keep me fit. My surgeon was aware of this and put me in touch with Altius as a last resort and I quickly learnt it wasn’t the running it was the way I was running that was the route of the problem. After a series of run coaching sessions, video analysis, whole body strengthening and the use of a unloader brace I am back running pain free and the happiest man in the world! Thank you.

  • Sally Levy

    I used to enjoy swimming but gave up as it used to leave me feeling sore and wasn’t getting me any fitter. Having my swim mechanics ripped apart in the pool and put back together again in the pool has dramatically improved my technique and thus improved my swim times and decreased the pain I got in my back and shoulders doing front crawl. If you want to improve your times, stay injury free or simply enjoy swimming again I thoroughly recommend booking a session with Tom in the pool and gym.

    I have played professional rugby for my entire career both overseas, in and premiership and represented my country. Having Jen at the club was fantastic to help us recover and I would always choose her to get into my tight muscles after a hard game or training session.
