Rope Neuro Rehabilitation staff have had extensive experience working with neurological clients in the community and supportive care settings. (see staff profiles)

Throughout all stages of rehabilitation our team of Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Therapists are able to consider effects and implications of having a neurological disorder and provide thorough assessments and treatment prescription.

We offer a private service both in the community and clinic setting and are ACC registered. We offer a no wait list service, flexible hours and functional client centred goals at the intensity required.
