About Us

Our Story

Flex physio started in 1984 in Papatoetoe by Physiotherapist Glenn Gallagher. Called ‘Glenn Gallagher Physiotherapy’ at the time, he employed a small group of hard working staff that all had one goal in mind- to help their community get the most out of life.

Over the years, they expanded their business & became a well-established physiotherapy practice. In 2005, the practice was renamed ‘Physio Sports & Rehab’ – all with the same goals and aspirations to help their community.

Then, in 2015, Glenn sold the practice to a hard working physiotherapist that has the same vision- helping the community get the most out of life. The practice was renamed Flex Physio Sports & Rehab.

Now, in 2019, Flex Physio Sports & Rehab has four clinics throughout South Auckland with an awesome crew from all different cultures & ethnic backgrounds.

We currently have a diverse body of staff that can speak Cook Island Maori, Fijian, French, Korean, Samoan, Te Reo Maori, & Mandarin. Flex Physio understands the importance of connecting to your roots & encourage our clients to communicate in whichever way they feel most comfortable.
