SHARON PECK, PHYSIOTHERAPY
What we offer
Please read Sharon’s biography under “Staff Profiles” for a full list of her services and experience.
Additionally, Sharon is the Chairperson and Clinical Leader of the Physiotherapy Primary Intervention Group (PPIG). For several years PPIG, a collaboration of seven physiotherapists from across the South Canterbury district, has run the community exercise and education programme for lower limb arthritis, under contracts for the South Canterbury District Health Board and for the Ministry of Health. They have consistently achieved very strong results for all stakeholders, using the work of Dr Alison Grimaldi as the foundations to the programme’s assessment and treatment principles.
All of the seven physiotherapists in the Group are highly skilled and experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of many hip and knee conditions.
If treatment in Timaru is not convenient, please contact Sharon to discuss telehealth consultations or she can direct you to the care of a PPIG colleague nearest to you.
