Dan Tuke - Chiropractor

Dan has been a chiropractor for the past 8 years, over this time has worked at numerous practices in Australia and NZ. He is passionate about helping clients move better, function well, and live a healthier life.

After getting an accurate picture of where clients are at, care may include a series of chiropractic sessions to change a specific condition, or the client may be happy to take the information and use physio, yoga, pilates or another health provider to help! The care plans are largely based around current chiropractic (and medical) science, mobility principles from selective functional movement assessment (SFMA) and pragmatic thinking.

In terms of Chiropractic techniques, He has a specific and gentle approach to manual chiropractic adjustments, and also use a range of techniques including instrument adjustments and sacral wedges. I combine these with stretches, exercises and soft tissue work.

Philosophy:
I feel the greatest help practitioner can be is to provide a detailed accurate picture of where a client is at are at, take care of their complaints, or find someone who can. Beyond that, advise of ways in which they can regain or maintain proper movement, that is vital to functioning and living well.

Sharon Nash - Hand Therapist- BHSc(Physio), PgCertHSc(Acupuncture), BA, NZRP, RHT(NZAHT)

Sharon is a Physiotherapist who has specialised in the treatment of hand, wrist, forearm and elbow injuries, and is a registered Hand Therapist.

Hand and wrist injuries are one of the most common reasons for referral to Accident and Medical Centers, as we all use our hands in a number of different ways. Whether your finger was bent whilst trying to catch a netball, you fell over whilst skiing, you lifted the baby awkwardly, or you’re
having pins and needles in your hands, the ensuing pain and disability can seemingly affect almost every aspect of how you live your life.

Sharon has 10 years experience as a Physiotherapist, and finds Hand Therapy tremendously rewarding, as patients’ progress through their rehabilitation, and achieve their goals. In recognition of the fact that there was no Hand Therapy service available in Auckland City, Sharon has started City Hands to provide excellence in management of hand-forearm disorders in a convenient, central location. At present, injuries that are covered by ACC are fully funded – including both the appointment and the cost of any splinting.
