We are a dynamic physiotherapy practice with a special interest in spinal conditions including lower back and neck pain, headaches and referred pain. At our initial consultation, we aim to ensure an accurate diagnosis following an extensive assessment and examination.


Holistic physiotherapy approach

Pelvic asymmetries, SIJ pain and ITB also fall into the spinal disorder category as they are often linked to spinal conditions. Likewise, TMJ pain can be associated with tension-type headaches. We also treat and rehabilitate post-operative conditions such as total knee replacements, ligament repairs and arthroscopies.

As first line practitioners, you do not need a referral to see us.

We treat each condition specifically and appropriately in order to improve your symptoms and reduce your pain. We use a variety of treatment modalities, but hands-on techniques form the basis of our treatments. We are also all trained to do dry needling when appropriate.

Sessions are 45 minutes long.

Our treatments always consist of an extensive assessment or reassessment in order to ensure that we provide you with the most effective physio treatment and home exercise program. This also guides us as to whether further investigation or referral to a specialist is required.

We will advise you how to manage your lifestyle in order to prevent recurrences and this often includes structured and specific exercises including rehabilitative Pilates sessions provided by one of our trained physiotherapists. We work very closely with our fellow medical practitioners and believe in a holistic approach to your recovery. This may include referrals to GPs, rheumatologists, surgeons, biokineticists, podiatrists or massage therapists.

We aim to improve your condition in four to six sessions. For patients suffering from chronic pain, we recommend a multi-disciplinary approach, (supported by scientific literature and research) as this has been shown to achieve the best outcomes.

We are passionate about providing you with an outstanding service and are continuously attending courses in order to keep our knowledge and skills up to date. We all have postgraduate qualifications in the field of OMT (Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy) and are registered with the SASP (South African Society of Physiotherapy) and the HPCSA (Health Professionals Council of South Africa).
