History of the Service

Liz Coke established Waimea Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Clinic in Richmond in 1992.  Initially she worked as a sole owner/practitioner in rooms attached to her residence at Linden Court and in 1998 moved the practice into the newly built Richmond Health Centre.   The clinic was one of the first in the Nelson/Richmond area to incorporate a purpose-built exercise area as well as private treatment rooms.

Since establishing the Richmond practice, Liz has been privileged to work with physiotherapy colleagues who have admirable post-graduate qualifications and a wealth of experience.  The standard of practice is extremely high and makes the clinic a pleasure to work in.
