Our Team

Tim Perrin - North Waikato Physio

Tim Perrin

Tim has been the principal physiotherapist at North Waikato Physio since October 2012 and in February 2014 he took over ownership of this busy vibrant private practice. Graduating from Otago University in 2003, Tim moved to Melbourne where he looked after various age group soccer and rugby teams whilst juggling his own state level rugby commitments. For the next 5 years, in between sampling the delights of European life he worked in and ran private practices throughout England. The call of Tim’s native Waikato/BOP region was too hard to resist however so he moved home to the North Waikato.

Tim spreads his time between the main Huntly clinic and in Te Kauwhata at the TK Medical Centre and TK College. Tim takes a keen interest in a wide variety of injuries and conditions requiring physiotherapy input, drawing from his international experience and training to give you the best possible recovery/rehabilitation. Tim is trained in acupuncture and frequently uses this age old technique as part of his treatments.
