Todd Wolfe

I’m the proud founder and owner of Bounceback Physiotherapy. I established the business back in 2000, following growing up in New Plymouth and playing for the mighty Taranaki rugby team. Over the past decade, Bounceback Physio has expanded to now offer the services of over 10 exceptional physiotherapists and working from two locations within New Plymouth and Bell Block areas. I am proud of the quality reputation we have built and all the thousands of people whose lives we have been able to improve.

I have 20+ years of experience working in private practice physiotherapy and possess a Post-Graduate Diploma in Manipulative Physiotherapy, and in Sports Medicine, to go with my Physiotherapy qualification I gained at the Otago School of Physiotherapy.

My particular area of expertise is in the treatment of neck & back pain, post-operative knee and shoulder rehabilitation.” I’ve worked with a number of local and national sports teams, including rugby, cricket, basketball, Triathlon, and High-Performance New Zealand.

More recently, the work rehab side of the business has evolved into the creation of BounceBack Work Rehab. This business concentrates on the vocational and pain contracts held with ACC and other insurance companies.

Katyana Kowalchuk Horn

I graduated with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy from the University of Otago in 2010, spending time working in Australia before moving to New Plymouth in 2013 to work at Bounceback Physiotherapy. Over the past few years, I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel and work, gaining physiotherapy and management experience in a snow sports setting, assessing and treating acute ski and snowboard injuries. I have now returned to work for Bounceback Physiotherapy in a more permanent role and am looking to begin post-graduate study in the near future.
