HARLEY MATTHEWS

PRINCIPAL PHYSIOTHERAPIST & DIRECTOR

BHSc Physiotherapy, PG Dip Sports & Exercise Medicine (Otago), PG Cert Western Acupuncture, Internationally Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner (CKTP), MPNZ, MSPNZ

DSC_09321.JPGHarley began working at Cairnhill Physiotherapy in 2007 after graduating from AUT.  Since then, Harley’s passion for musculoskeletal and sports physiotherapy has led him to complete post graduate studies in Western Acupuncture and Sports & Exercise Medicine.

He has a special interest in treating patients recovering from shoulder and knee surgery, as well as those with lower limb and sporting injuries.

Harley has worked with numerous teams from various sports ranging from school and club level, up to Auckland and National representative teams. For the last 3 years, Harley has been the physiotherapist to the Blues A team during their season and also provides cover for the Blues medical team. He has covered shows with Nitro Circus, USA vs Canada Ice Hockey and has worked with Guns N Roses during their Auckland concert.

Harley offers a ‘hands on’ approach to a wide range of injuries. He specialises in formulating personalised exercise programmes for his patients’ rehabilitation, prevention of injuries and general wellbeing.  His skills in massage, acupuncture and manual therapy are also combined to help patients recover from injury and surgery quickly.

Over the past 2 years, Harley has been working with Procare (PHO) around the design of an initiative to improve patient outcomes in primary healthcare. A large portion of this project is to foster stronger relationships between GP’s and physiotherapists. This has involved multiple workshops teaching GP’s assessment techniques for the shoulder, knee, cervical and lumbar spines. Harley is passionate about fostering the relationship between physiotherapy and GP's to help improve the patients' recovery from their injuries. 

In his spare time, Harley enjoys watching a good game of rugby, fishing, playing golf and enjoying time with his young family.
