We believe that for people to perform at their optimum or recover from an injury; we need to focus on each individual as a whole. We use the Four Corners of Health to deliver a truly holistic approach to Transformative Rehabilitation. This identifies and delivers the best pathway to well-being tailored specifically to the patient, so they enjoy the freedom to participate fully and live successfully. Proactive is a passionate company that loves guiding people to achieve their health goals.
Proactive was founded in 1999 by Brendon Tod and Rebekah Whittfield on the premise that injury treatment and rehabilitation in New Zealand could be done a whole lot better than it was. We envisaged providing a recovery service to Kiwis that considered the whole person, not just the injury. We wanted to offer Kiwis a recovery pathway that would take them all the way from the set-back of the injury, to return to activities that were important to them; and that offered them the opportunity to prevent future injury or improve their overall wellbeing.
21 Years later and we are truly there. We provide a range of recovery and wellbeing services to Kiwis of all walks of life across New Zealand. We have one of New Zealand’s largest teams of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Medical Specialists, Psychologists, Exercise Physiologists, Nurses and Vocational Consultants. So, whether your setback is due to a physical injury, a concussion, persistent pain or ongoing fatigue; we have the experience, the expertise and the services that will help you to get back on your feet, and to thrive.
Our purpose is to help our clients achieve or improve Well-being – whatever that means to them.
