Surgical Rehab Specialists is a novel physiotherapy practice which aims to provide the highest quality care for people before and after surgery. Amy Schischka is the founder and Senior Physiotheraptist at Surgical Rehab Specialists and will also see patients for general injuries and aches and pains that do not require surgery. Surgical Rehab Specialists work closely with surgeons, providing their patients with quality rehabilitation that is specific to each surgeon's protocols. You can trust you will receive quality, hands-on physiotherapy care, as well as specific exercise rehabilitation.
Amy graduated witha Bachelor of Health Science in Physiotherapy in 2011. Since then she has gained expertise in musculoskeletal diagnosis and rehabilitation. Amy quickly recognised her passion for surgical rehabilitation, and has enjoyed working with and developing relationships with a number of top Auckland surgeons and sports physicians. She has had many unique opportunities to spend time in theatre with surgeons, and therefore has a good understanding of what the body is put through, and how surgical repairs are carried out. Feel free to ask her as many details as you wish - screws, stitches and everything in between! Amy is also certified in Mulligan Mobilisation techiques (CMP) and acupuncture.

- Clear and easy communication between physiotherapist, surgeon and client
