We are Physio By Design

We are Physio By Design



At Physio By Design, we provide an innovative maintenance physiotherapy scheme to ensure your body reaches its maximum potential, giving you a distinct advantage over your competitors.

Quite frankly, Chris, and the entire Physio By Design team, are bloody great! Many people unfortunately assume that all physios work in the same manner; often settling for sub-standard treatment. Rest assured that when you choose Physio By Design you’ll receive a highly qualified therapist who gets to know you and your injury. Nothing is left unchecked, ensuring a fast and effective recovery process. I couldn’t recommend a better clinic and sincerely hope you’ll find the same.
— Kyle Myburgh


Physio By Design was founded in March 2010 by Chris Johns. A passionate and friendly sports physiotherapist striving to provide his clients with a quality service tailored to individual needs.

As a graduate of Auckland University of Technology, receiving a Bachelor of Health Science (Physiotherapy), Chris is a ACC registered physiotherapist, a member of the New Zealand Society of Physiotherapists, and the New Zealand Manipulate Physiotherapist Association.

Having worked in many private practices, Chris has ample experience within a wide range of sporting codes. And, by specializing in musculoskeletal physiotherapy with a sporting focus, is able to overcome the challenges of pre and post-surgical rehabilitation.  

Physio By Design has gym facilities; allowing them to provide comprehensive treatment and rehabilitation services from point of injury through to full function – effectively minimizing possible re-injury. They also have close relationships with local personal trainers in the area.

Chris Johns has been my physiotherapist for 3 years. During this time my injuries have ranged from shoulder issues through to back and knees. I have always found Chris to be very professional in his conduct and cutting edge with his treatment. My injuries have always improved quickly as Chris also includes rehabilitation in his physiotherapy practice.
