Who We Are
QSP is a rehabilitation clinic in lower Queen Street, Auckland. Our vision is to create a multi-disciplinary physiotherapy service for the central city community specialising in management of musculoskeletal injuries.
Treatment is strongly aligned to manual therapy (“hands on”) which includes joint mobilisation, manipulation, and massage, and a large emphasis is on exercise prescription and client education, self management and injury prevention.
You may access physiotherapy directly for both private and ACC related injuries (i.e. a referral is not necessary from your Doctor). We will at all times treat within our capabilities and refer you to your own Doctor, if indicated, for further assessment and investigation.
Health Professionals at QSP maintain high standards through ongoing education, teaching, research and peer review.
