About the Practice and myself:
The Practice was founded in 2002 in Somerset West. I have been in solus practice since then, but have shared premises with various Health Care Professionals over the years. It was a privilege to learn form these Health Care Professionals and it has opened my mind to many different approaches to treating pain. It also made me realize how important it is to treat each person as an individual, as no two people are the same.
Over the years I have developed a passion and special interest in treating Pain and in helping patients with acute and chronic back-, neck-, and shoulder pain. I have attended numerous courses in these fields and continue to better my knowledge and skills yearly to help patients in the best way I can. Having seen many patients with chronic pain, it has become my vision to help prevent people from developing chronic pain in the first place through education in ergonomics and pain neuroscience, as well as promotion of wellness.
I am passionate about networking with other Health Care Professionals and Specialists and have built up good relationships with many Practitioners in the Helderberg area to whom I can refer patients when necessary.
My Mission is to provide personalized and quality care to each individual, treating each person holistically by looking at the Bio-Psycho-and Social factors contributing to their pain.
Also to share my knowledge about modern Neuroscience Education with Health Care Professionals in the Helderberg area and to help people from developing chronic pain through preventative care, educating people in Ergonomics and Pain Neuroscience.
My approach is aimed at addressing pain and empowering patients with knowledge and skills to improve their self efficacy and facilitate patients to return to a meaningful and fulfilled life.
I am a founding member of the Paardevlei Pain Program in Somerset West 2016 - 2021. Please follow the link to read more about the program:
