I have been a registered physiotherapist for more than 20 years. I have extensive clinical occupational physiotherapy experience across the food processing, horticultural and agricultural industries. I am also experienced in health promotion and health service development, non-clinically, within men’s health, Māori health, mental health and community development.
A substantial percentage of those working in the seafood sector have been through some form of pain, strains or sprains. The health system can often be a challenge to navigate in order to get the right advice and support, that’s why as a professional health navigator I am here to answer health-related questions for you, your crew and whānau.
I can provide free initial online support nationally or face-to-face for people in the Nelson/Tasman region.
If I can’t help, or if your health issue may not be physiotherapy-related, then I can help connect you to local and relevant health services that can. Don’t stay in pain when help is only a call away.
Appointments can be made by calling FirstMate on 0800 237 438.
