I qualified as a physiotherapist in 2002 at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. I then went on to work and travel in the UK for 9 years, gaining invaluable experience in the various sectors of physiotherapy, working in world class establishments. I had 2 children in the UK and decided to head back home, in search of a bit of sunshine.
I then went on to work in a top physiotherapy practice in Johannesburg. It was here that my love for sports injuries and the management thereof was sparked. I completed a post graduate course in Sports Physiotherapy, finishing in the top 2 of the class. I then went on to lecture on this course to other qualified physiotherapists and was a mentor to the students.
I dealt with the top shoulder surgeons in Johannesburg during this time and a special interest in shoulder injuries was developed. I worked tirelessly to assist my patients to avoid shoulder surgery. If this wasn’t possible, I walked with my patients through the rehabilitation process of post -operative care of various shoulder injuries.
I moved to Durban in 2018. This was a lifestyle decision as my family and I love the beach and outdoor life.
I have a strong sporting background, having played provincial hockey throughout my schooling career, followed by playing in the WITS 1st team and premier hockey league in Johannesburg.
I have a strong work ethic and enjoy assisting with complicated cases. I have been involved in consulting with other physiotherapists to assist in these difficult cases.
I have a drive to assist people wherever possible and I do not stop until these goals have been attained.
I have 18 years of physiotherapy experience in the treatment of various conditions such as back and neck pain, headaches, orthopaedic conditions, soft tissue injuries, nerve damage or injuries, post-operative orthopaedic conditions. I have a special interest in shoulder injuries.
