Back in Motion support a Physiotherapist on school site for our injured athletes
Kavanagh College is lucky to have an opportunity again to have a Physiotherapist from Back in Motion on site this year. This opportunity will be for any athlete who has had an injury while playing sport. Only students with an injury who can complete an ACC claim can be treated. There will be no ACC surcharge when treated during the clinic times at school. It is available to all students at the school. Any student in Year 7 – 11 must complete the claim form and get a parent /caregiver to sign this form. This covers the legal requirement that any student under 16 must have consent from a parent/caregiver. All students in Year 12 and 13 are able to sign this form themselves.
Jake Brennan will start on a Wednesday morning from 9.00-12.00pm. To make an appointment you need to go to the Main Office and book an appointment on the official sheet, take an ACC Claim and Permission form (one form) and collect a pass to allow you out of class at the appointed time. The first time you go to the Physiotherapist you will need to book a 30 minute appointment. Any following appointment the following week would be a 20 minute appointment. You will not be able to attend the appointment without a signed consent form. Appointments will be made by Tuesday 3.00pm, the day prior to the clinic. No appointments can be made on Wednesday morning. Please see Ms James if you feel uncertain or would like someone with you for the first appointment.

My name is Jake,
I work at Back Motion Physiotherapy and with Roslyn Football Club. We are excited to be returning to Kavanagh College this year and continuing our relationship we have with the students and the school.
I have a background in rugby, football, and martial arts for several years. I have a passion for working with sports teams, athletes, and the general public. I aid with strength and condition, and guidance for people’s rehabilitation from various injuries.
We aim to be as approachable as possible, so feel free to block some time out and come see us at Kavanagh about aches pains and niggles going on around the body.
This is a wonderful initiative from Back in Motion and we are grateful for this opportunity. If you need a Physiotherapist appointment please be proactive about making one using the correct procedure and in the correct time.
