Sport Participation and Post Graduate
I’ve participated in many sporting codes, but my passion has always been in combat sports. I have a third-degree black belt in Ring Contact Fighting Art as well as a first-degree black belt in JKA Karate. My pastimes include boxing, kickboxing (welterweight titleholder), Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). My training has included Cross-fit, Pilates and Yoga. This gave me a valuable understanding of the relationship between flexibility and strength. Personally, I am pro-strength training and feel disappointed when patients are told to stop resistance training due to other medical professionals poor understanding of strength training.
I have been a lecturer at the University of Pretoria and have done my postgraduate course to sub-specialize in Sports Medicine (SPT1). In 2016 I completed an LLB (Bachelors of Laws) and can always be found on a new academic endeavor to improve myself even further. I love traveling with sport teams around the country and have previously toured with SASCOC national athletes. My work includes treating sport icons and Olympic athletes, but my passion for providing a high level of physiotherapy service, has brought me into private practice. If you have a challenging biomechanical problem, then there is a good chance that you will end up seeing me. If you are on the verge of giving up on yourself – consult with me and let’s change that.
Renier and I established the practice in 2012 with one main aim: Raising the bar by thorough diagnosis, skillful treatment and addressing the initial cause of the problem.
