Meet the Physiotherapists

Physiotherapists are first-line practitioners, meaning that we do not need a doctor’s referral to see patients.

We qualify with a 4 year BSc degree from Medical school and according to the HPCSA (Health Care Professions Council of South Africa) HPCSA Website. Our scope of practice legally includes:

  • Assessment
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment
  • Rehabilitation

OF
Orthopedic, Sports, Neurological, Respiratory, Paediatric Conditions, to name a few.

Our therapists have a keen interest/post graduate qualifications in sports and orthopaedics and are registered with the SASP and HPCSA

We have a joint experience of over 40 years and have all worked with a wide range of conditions and athletes. We believe our strength lies in being there for our patients from initial treatment to full rehabilitation onto the sports field or to normal daily activities.
