Anel Baker Physiotherapy
at the 22 Meihana Street, by Appointment
I offer treatments for:
– acute and persistent pain conditions
– soft tissue injuries
– overuse injuries
– back and neck injuries
– managing osteo-arthritis symptoms
Treatment sessions will include a full initial assessment, discussing treatment options and goals with the client. There is a focus on self-empowerment in regards to management of the injury or chronic condition through education, advice, postural correction and a home exercise program.
I also utilise mobilisation techniques, myofacial and trigger point release, massage and western acupuncture as indicated.
I am an accredited ACC treatment provider and can also provide private treatments.
I studied at the University of Stellenbosch and completed my B.Sc. in Physiotherapy at the end of 1995. Thereafter I practised in South Africa until 1998 when I went to the United Kingdom for a couple of years OE.
As for many 2 years turned to 15 years!
During those 15 years I worked first as a locum and then as a Senior Physiotherapist, first for the East Kent NHS Trust in Ashford and then from 2001 to 2013 for the Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust near Cambridge.
I moved to Takaka at the start of 2014. I love living in Golden Bay with its sunshine, beaches, mountains, friendly people and slower pace of life.
Anel is an excellent Physio.
She is talented, caring and thorough.
