My expertise include sports and musculoskeletal injuries, orthopaedic management focussing on
post-operative surgical repair/reconstruction, lower limb biomechanics, movement disorder/dysfunction and spinal injuries whether it be vocational (work) related, sport or recreational activities. I also offer acupuncture/ dry needling as part of injury management-treatment to facilitate recovery whether it be return to work, sport or general health.
I have significant amount of experience working with elite athletes at International level, specifically being head physiotherapist and working closely with the Manu Samoa 7s rugby team on the World Rugby Sevens Circuit and further progressing to look after the Manu Samoa 15s at the 2015 Rugby World Cup
I value diversity and respect all cultures and ethnicities. I consider a great strength is my ability to speak various languages which allows me to instantly build a rapport.

ZIHAN ZANG - BhSc physiotherapy

Growing up playing sports, injuries were always inevitable and physios became my favorite people. Working with physios I was able to return to sports at the right time and this is where my passion lies in physiotherapy. Using what I've learnt about the human body, kinesiology and exercise based rehabilitation to return you back to doing things you love.
Through my studies and experience, I believe exercise and movement is the best therapy to return to normal function and decrease pain given the progress of injury. With years of involvement in sports I have gained a variety of knowledge in gym-based exercises and training styles which translates to a challenging but fun rehabilitation process.
I am dedicated in continuing my education and utilising the most up to date theories and practices. As follows, I believe working with and not for the individual and providing all the knowledge I have, will create effective treatment session. Zihan graduated from AUT University in 2018 with a Bachelor of health Science in Physiotherapy
