Lower Back, Knee and Shoulder Physio Through ECP

If you have a lower back, knee or shoulder injury or pain, you might be eligible for our fully funded rehabilitation programme through the Escalated Care Pathway (ECP).

Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) has partnered with selected health care providers, including Habit Health, to provide a simpler, smoother and faster journey to recovery through the ECP service.

Patients suffering from non-acute knee, shoulder and back injuries can apply to be part of this service that focuses on innovative new ways to integrate and customise treatment protocols and set them on a smooth path to recovery.

Habit Health can offer back, knee and shoulder physio and other services to patients enrolled in this service. The idea is that everyone will be working together to provide exemplary service at the right time.

Your health care practitioner will assist in the process of assessing your eligibility for the ECP programme. Factors taken into consideration include the severity of the injury, symptoms, duration of unresolved symptoms, risk factors, medications, social impacts and more.

At this stage, the Escalated Care Pathway is available only on the South Island, but we can still treat your injury if you're on the North Island. Habit Health has over locations across the country.  Click here to find your nearest one.
