My Story

I remember how I slowly started to learn more about anatomy and our body’s physiology. I remember the child like wonder that enveloped me whenever I delved deeper into what humanity already knows about the different parts of a human body. The more I knew, the deeper my love for the subject grew.

I found myself enrolling for a Bsc Physiotherapy degree at the University of the Free State. Studying physiotherapy, with all of its different aspects, opened my eyes to everything a physiotherapist would be able to do. As I completed my degree in 2012 I came to the conclusion that there would always be more to discover about our bodies, and that what I had learned, thus far, is only the very tip of the iceberg.

After starting my career as a physiotherapist, I became aware of the different fields in physiotherapy, and to which I am drawn the most. Pain should not interfere with your daily lives and future plans. This thought caused me to go back to studying after working as a physiotherapist for 3 years. To help my patients heal is my first and only goal, the more I know about the human body, the better I ‘ll be at diagnosing and treating my patients. Further I completed a post graduate course in Orthopedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT 2016) and received a Certificate in Pain Management (2019).

Where the Therapist and Patient meet

Each new patient is different from the previous. Everybody has their own stories and goals. With each new story I hear, I realize how much my patient’s pain is truly interrupting their the continuation of their daily lives. Through experience I’ve learnt that pain cannot be connected with mere injuries. There are so many different factors that play a role in how pain is perceived. I like rehabilitating each patient’s broken stories, due to pain, by helping them push through their injuries. I always tend to be amazed when it comes to the resilience of a human body!

Building a therapeutic relationship with every patient I meet is incredibly important. I will see the person you are meant to be, and I will help you reach through your pain towards your goals. Many people feel uncomfortable and vulnerable at their first physio session, I am here to help you heal. There is nothing to fear. Communication is the key, as it is in any relationship. I enjoy hearing about my patients stories, it makes me understand them better. Please feel free to talk as much as you want and to ask any questions whenever you are unsure about what is happening in our sessions.

When building the therapeutic relationship, it is important to understand the fact that it takes effort from both sides. I will be providing advice, information and treatment to improve your daily performance. Whereas you will have to do something from your side as well, whether it is exercise or changing  your posture at work. Together we will take the necessary steps towards a better, and pain free, future.

I was so worried about my first ever Physio session, but from the very moment I entered the practice I was put at ease. Everyone is extremely nice and professional. Nina helped me work through the pain I had in my knees, and I feel 100% better!
