Megan Copeland | 47 Whiteleigh Ave, Addington, Christchurch

I have 16 years Dietetic experience working in the hospital, outpatient and community setting. I enjoy getting to know my clients, learning what is important to you and working together to achieve your health goals. With the name, Eat Cake Nutrition, I wanted to break the stigma that certain foods need to be avoided, as all foods have a place in achieving healthy eating patterns.
Conrad Goodhew | Sport Clinic, 156 Bealey Avenue, Christchurch Central
027 858 0770 firstname.lastname@example.org
Conrad Goodhew is a registered dietitian specialising in sport and recovery. The difference that Conrad provides, is that he brings a performance mindset to an industry full of weight loss fads. Not only is he an expert in exercise nutrition, but his Dietetic study also brings a clinical element to the delivery of advice. His ethos is “let’s not overcomplicate this eating thing” as nutrition is fast becoming a complex space, when it really doesn’t need to.

You First Physio have been offering classes for knee and hip osteoarthritis since 2016. These classes offer worldwide guideline-based care. They take place in a caring, non-threatening environment and are taught by physios who have a special interest in osteoarthritis. At You First Physio we are passionate about getting you excellent outcomes once you have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis. We limit numbers in each class, so you get a more focused approach.
If classes are not the thing for you (or your client), we will take you through the exercises one to one in the clinic.

BENEFITS OF PHYSIOTHERAPY WITH US. Our collective years of experience and advanced training combined with our highly personalised, straight-talking and compassionate approach has established Physiosouth as one of Christchurch’s leading and most trusted providers of musculoskeletal (joint, bone and soft tissue) physiotherapy services. THE WAY WE WORK We are not your average physiotherapists. We treat sport injuries, back pain, pre and post-surgical clients and show you how to prevent injuries and health conditions. We apply our unique skills in mobility, biomechanical assessment, functional movement retraining, strength and conditioning and exercise prescription to address the needs of both injured individuals and those seeking a return to activities they love with confidence and a reduced risk of injury. On your first visit, your physiotherapist will take a detailed history and listen to your goals. You will then be assessed so the physiotherapist can develop a working diagnosis. Together we will formulate a treatment plan to help resolve your immediate issues and achieve your short and long-term goals. Your customised treatment plan, key milestones and expected timeframes for recovery will be discussed in detail. Your treatment plan will vary depending on your individual goals, and will not be limited to the treatment room. We have access to Christchurch’s best gym and pool facilities. This gives us huge scope to work with you to achieve your goals. Depending on your injury or problem your physiotherapist may recommend various specialists. This includes our wider in-house team and when required, our clients can be reassured by access to our external network of respected consultant partners.
