Escalated Care Pathway

(ACC Pilot Study)

Kinetics is one of a select group of physiotherapy clinics that are a part of a 4 year long pilot study alongside ACC, focused on complex shoulder, knee and lower back injuries. The protocol includes pre-op rehab and post-op rehab, including gym-based rehabilitation.

We work alongside a number of orthopaedic surgeons, sports physicians and specialists in this pilot study. Kinetics at AUT Millennium has the benefit of being in the same building as a number of orthopaedic surgeons, including Dr Warren Leigh who David works with as a post-op consultant. There are specific criterion that must be met to be enrolled on this pilot, and our physiotherapy team will be able to discuss this with you if appropriate.

Pre Op (Pre-surgery) Rehab

There is a growing body of research demonstrating the positive impacts of pre-operative rehabilitation. The goal is to help educate you about the surgery, expectations and the rehab process to follow.

Improving baseline conditioning including range of motion, strength and reduced swelling is shown to improve outcomes after surgery. This aspect of care also forms a key component of the ECP Pilot study with ACC.

Post Op (Post-surgery) Rehab

Our team have broad experience with rehabilitation protocols following a variety of surgeries including the knee, shoulder, hip, back and ankle. We regularly observe surgery alongside many of the top surgeons in Auckland which helps to provide a well-rounded perspective on the whole recovery process.

In both our Whangaparaoa and AUT Millennium clinics we have on-site rehab gyms and have relationships with full gym facilities to progress your rehab in the later phases.
