I received my bachelor degree in physiotherapy at the University of Stellenbosch (www.sun.ac.za) in 2002. After completing my year of community service at Wynberg Military hospital in 2003, I went to the UK where I worked as a locum for just over a year in the ICU, respiratory and neurology fields. I then had the opportunity to work on a personal level with professional soccer players, namely from Arsenal Football Club.
This opened the door to working in Germany where I worked full time for the Reha Training Centre (www.reha–training.de) of Bayer Leverkusen. I treated and worked with professional and amateur soccer players, hockey players, handball players and field and track athletes. I also treated national soccer players from South Korea and Russia who were specially sent to the Reha Training Centre for rehabilitation post-operatively.
In 2006, I started practicing at the ‘Zentrum for Diagnostik und Technik’ in the Dietmar Linsler praxis in Cologne, Germany (http://www.yelp.de/biz/dietmar-linsler-praxis-f%C3%BCr-physiotherapie-k%C3%B6ln). My work involved mostly traumatic sports injuries, orthopaedics and rehabilitation. In 2009 I opted for a change and I started a private practice in Cologne, Germany.
Finally in 2011, I returned to South Africa and worked at SPARC (the Sports Performance and Rehabilitation Centre, http://www.sparc.co.za/) in the Cape Quarter in Cape Town.
In June 2014, I opened my new practice in 3 Antrim road in Green point.
And as of recent, September 2018, I moved the practice and my team to Pinelands. It is a large heritage house with homely charm to it.
I treat patients after-hours from this practice and do home calls.
