KYLE TURVEY - PHYSIOTHERAPIST
I’m Kyle and I’ve been with Lifestyle Physiotherapy since 2018.
I’ve always been interested in science, exercise and sport so chose physiotherapy as my career. After completing my degree at AUT I worked in a private practice in Morrinsville for five years. I am passionate about further broadening my skills and knowledge base, and put a lot of time in to this through reading, online courses, and special interest groups.
I have a keen interest in sports and have played almost everything under the sun including tennis, rugby, rugby league, soccer, softball, basketball and cricket. In more recent years I have trained and competed in Crossfit with a special interest in the Olympic weightlifting that came with that. I am now a qualified weightlifting coach and enjoy introducing people to strength training in the work setting, particularly older people to improve their functional capacity. Exercise-based interventions for rehabilitation and improving community health are my particular focus.
At Lifestyle Physiotherapy we’re a good team of down to earth people who are family oriented. I enjoy the flexible work environment that allows time for reading and other areas of interest. My varied background and interests help me to understand my patients’ needs and form a strong clinical alliance that when combined with an evidence-based approach provides a top quality physiotherapy experience.
Away from work, I am a keen outdoorsman and try to get out hunting or fishing whenever I can.
