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.

Julie Dobson

My name is Julie, I started working for Bounceback Physiotherapy after I graduated in 2003. My love of sports and health have combined to make this the perfect job for me.

I enjoy working with people to get them back to doing what they love – athletes or non-athletes, young and old.  I now balance my time working Tuesdays/Fridays so that I can spend time with my family.
