ILANA HADFIELD

Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor

BPHTY (Otago), PGDipSEM (Otago), MNZSP

HI! I'M ILANA

I am a physiotherapist and Pilates instructor based in Mount Maunganui. I aim to empower you to understand your body's anatomy and physiology, and to return to participation in the activities which are meaningful to you. I can help you to recover from an injury, to restore movement in your body, to breathe well, and to improve your muscle health.

I graduated from Otago University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with distinction. Since graduating I have completed postgraduate training in both New Zealand and Australia. I have trained in Pilates for rehabilitation through Polestar Pilates, and am a BradCliff Breathing physiotherapist. In 2020 I graduated with distinction with a Postgraduate Diploma in Sport and Exercise Medicine.

 

I am experienced in managing musculoskeletal injuries, pre and post-operative rehabilitation, tendinopathy, sprains and strains, lower back pain, rotator cuff problems, hip and knee pain and stiffness, aches and pains related to stress and posture, and breathing pattern disorders.

I am happy to discuss whether Spring Physio & Well-Being is right for you and your goals, and I look forward to meeting you.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT

At your appointment we will discuss what brings you in, and complete a thorough assessment to provide guidance for treatment. We will discuss your situation and assessment findings, form a treatment plan, and establish timeframes for recovery. We may refer you for investigations, such as an X-Ray, or for an appointment with a doctor, or an orthopaedic specialist if needed.

 

Physiotherapy treatments often incorporate a combination of education, problem solving, massage and mobilisation techniques, and supervised exercises. There will always be a home exercise programme for you to practice between appointments.

Wear some comfortable clothes that allow movement, and for your injury site to be seen. There is a changing room available.

If you are unsure if physiotherapy is appropriate for you, please phone or email me to discuss your situation.
