Wellington Sports Medicine is a brand new unique multi-disciplinary Sports Medicine facility located at the newly developed ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie, Wellington. Wellington Sports Medicine is owned and run by Sports Physician Ruth Highet and Physiotherapists Greg Lynch and Gill Stotter. Wellington Sports Medicine (WSM) provides an integrated approach to sports medicine treatment for high performance athletes and all other athletes in the greater Wellington region. The integration of sports physicians with physiotherapists, sports podiatrists, orthopaedic, cardiology, neurology and rheumatological specialists, sports massage therapists, sports nutritionist and sports psychologists enables the thorough assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of the injured, unwell or ‘poorly performing' athlete. There is also integration with ‘High Performance Sport New Zealand’ who share premises with WSM, and this – along with a full gymnasium – means WSM can offer close networking with the strength and conditioning services and other HPSNZ services that will ensure a complete integrated rehabilitation pathway for the region’s ‘elite’ athletes. This Sports Medicine Clinic within the High Performance NZ Support Centre is unique to Wellington and provides a multidisciplinary approach similar to the Millennium Institute of Sport that operates in Auckland. By enabling HPSNZ key providers in Wellington to operate out of one venue, the multidisciplinary approach allows an athlete to be seen by several types of provider in the one facility, often, at the same time.
