Health prac­tice of­fers more

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

An Alexan­dra health prac­tice is ex­pand­ing its ser­vice.

Alexan­dra Health is mov­ing next month to a big­ger premises from Tar­bert St to 113 Cen­ten­nial Av­enue.

Dr Neki Pa­tel, a in­ter­na­tion­ally cer­ti­fied chi­ro­prac­tic sports prac­ti­tioner, said the pa­tient-ori­ented ser­vice would not change— but be en­hanced with an ad­di­tional room and more staff join­ing the prac­tice.

Alexan­dra Health of­fered an in­te­grated model whereby ser­vices in­cluded a chi­ro­prac­tor, phys­io­ther­a­pist, acupunc­tur­ist and mas­sage ther­a­pist.

‘‘It’s sort of a one-stop mul­ti­prac­tice shop with a highly ex­pe­ri­enced health team who use the in­te­gra­tion model,’’ Pa­tel said.

Chi­ro­prac­tor Simon Burke, who has been prac­tis­ing since 2009, will op­er­ate out of the Alexan­dra branch.

The in­te­gra­tion model was one used with top ath­letes, Pa­tel said.

Pa­tel had worked on var­i­ous high-pro­file rugby play­ers and with the Aus­tralasian PGA since 1998.

He was the chi­ro­prac­tor for the New Zealand Com­mon­wealth Games team to Manch­ester, and had treated mem­bers of in­ter­na­tional ski and ice hockey teams.

Alexan­dra Health will move to the new premises on April 13.

One stop: Neki Pa­tel, clinic prin­ci­pal, and his team, Simon Bourke, chi­ro­prac­tor; Kelly Bowry, phys­io­ther­a­pist; Yuki Sueyoshi, acupunc­tur­ist, and See Yin Ang, mas­sage ther­a­pist.
