MSc (Physiotherapy) Cum Laude Wits
I have been practising as a physiotherapist since 1995. After completing my physiotherapy degree at the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), I went on to obtain a post-graduate diploma in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy through the South African Society of Physiotherapy (SASP) in 1998. I also completed a Cardio-Respiratory Physiotherapy Diploma through Wits and the SASP in 2014. In 2023, I earned a physiotherapy master’s degree by dissertation from Wits, graduating cum laude. I researched the effect hip joint range of movement has on non-specific lower back pain.
I have worked in both the public and private sectors, locally and abroad. In 1997, I was invited to join the staff at Wits University’s Physiotherapy department as a part-time sports physiotherapy lecturer and simultaneously worked at Wit’s Campus Health Clinic serving staff and students. After returning from overseas, I opened my own private practice in 2004. Although I am in general practice, I have a special interest in lumbar, cervical, thoracic and peripheral joint conditions as well as sports injuries. These muscle, joint, disc and ligamentous conditions are treated through joint mobilisation, massage techniques, exercise, manipulation, strapping and electrotherapy. I strongly believe in a hands-on approach to treatment and ensure that I have adequate treatment time to focus on each individual patient’s needs. If you are unable to travel to my premises, I do make home visits in the surrounding suburbs.
