Gloucester Sports Clinic

Gloucester Sports Clinic is a multi-disciplinary Sports Medicine and General Practice located in central Christchurch. Our philosophy is based upon a team approach to health care, sports, and rehabilitative medicine. Our aim is to provide professional health services to the active public in a friendly and relaxed environment. We have ample parking at the front and rear of the building. We are open from 7.45am until 6.00pm Monday to Friday, with the physio department also open on Saturday from 9.00am.

Business Description

Earthquake Update: Our thoughts and best wishes go out to everybody who has been affected by the recent devastating earthquake. As you are likely aware, our clinic is situated in the ‘red-zone’ of the CBD. Luckily it is built like a little bunker and sustained no significant damage from the earthquake. We would like to assure all of our valued customers that we have every intention to return to business at 211 Gloucester Street as soon as possible.

As a temporary measure we have started a clinic at the Hagley Netball Centre. This will be our primary centre until we are cleared to return to our normal clinic. Medical, Physio and Podiatry will all be operating from this site and appointments can be made by calling our usual number. Again, our thoughts are with you at this time and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Sports Medicine

All of the practitioners at Gloucester Sports Clinic are united in their love of sports and sports medicine and believe in the importance of fitness for both physical and mental well-being. Whether it be advice on training techniques, equipment set-up, recovery or injury rehabilitation, our multi-disciplinary and co-operative approach ensures that you receive the most appropriate treatment and advice. With a long association with many of Canterbury’s best sporting organisations (including Touch Canterbury and a 20-year association with Canterbury Netball and the court-side injury clinic at the Hagley Courts) the practitioners at Gloucester Sports Clinic have a wealth of experience to draw upon.


The Physiotherapy department has had a long history of delivering skilled and effective physiotherapy health care to the active population of Canterbury. The practice has had over twenty years of experience in the specialised treatment of sports injuries as well as the “common garden variety” of strains and sprains. The highly qualified staff, using up to date methods, are committed to seeing the diagnosis, acute management and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries through to a satisfatory resolution. The practice enjoys a professional association with several sporting bodies including Touch New Zealand and Canterbury Netball.

Gloucester Sports Podiatry sets the benchmark in providing the highest quality Podiatric care available in New Zealand. Whether your concern is chronic ankle sprains, foot or knee pain, through to care of nails, corns or blisters, we offer it all, including advanced podiatric surgery. Our Podiatrists are experts in evaluating, diagnosing and treating foot, ankle and lower limb problems. We provide this superb service in a relaxed, friendly and professional environment.

We are the orthotic specialists. And how do we make such a bold claim? Well, experience goes a long way to validating such a statement. We are one of the few podiatry clinics that actually make their own orthotics in our own custom orthotics laboratory. Who is better to make the orthotics for you, than the clinic that evaluated your problem and knows your needs best? And this is no ‘part-time’ operation. Over the last 13 years we have manufactured over 11,000 pairs of custom/prescription devices; and that does not count the many thousands of prefabricated ones. All of our Podiatrists are required to spend time in the lab every week, helping to manufacture the devices. This gives experience and skills few other Podiatrists could claim. In fact, we are so confident in our ability to assess and manufacture a prescription device to suit your needs, we guarantee them. If for some reason, you are not completely satisfied, we will modify, replace or refund your device.

Gloucester Sports Podiatry embraces the concept of a collaborative team approach to health care. Whether it is with one of our GSC colleagues, or your own doctor, physio or other health care professional, we work closely with them to deliver outstanding results. We focus not only on the management of pain, but the presentation of future problems that may limit you being able to be as active as you want. Prompt action is the most effective way to stop a niggle becoming an major, activity stopping complaint, so act now and contact us for an assessment today.

General Practice

Our team of Sports Doctors is led by Dr Neil Averis, and they have a wealth of Sports Medicine experience in addition to General Practice skills. Supported by a team of Podiatrists, Physiotherapists, and multi-disciplinary Nurses, we provide a full range of General Practice services, including:
• Full physicals, health screening, and exercise prescription
• General services, skin/mole checks, blood, and pregnancy tests
• Minor surgery including mole and melanoma removal
• Medical assessment of workplace and sports injuries
• Flu and travel vaccinations and advice
• Immigration medicals
• Sexual health advice (free for people under 20)


A Rehab Gym and customised rehab programmes are also available on site. When compiling your programme we go over your health and fitness history. Your fitness objectives are then identified before undertaking a comprehensive fitness assessment. This includes measuring your aerobic capacity, flexibility, strength, endurance, and any other necessary tests. Your instructor can identify your strengths and weaknesses and then tailor your programme to meet your objectives. With progressive assessments you will be able to see actual improvements and further develop your programme.
