Our practitioners are all experts in their respective fields and a team approach makes our clinic unique in Durban.



Our team of physiotherapists are very "hands on" as we believe this approach is essential in delivering the desired results.

We treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and specialise in sports injuries, spinal conditions of the neck and back, headaches, post-operative rehabilitation as well as general maintenance and conditioning of athletes.

Our typical treatment will consist of a "hands on" soft tissue release as well as a joint mobilisation or manipulation. We normally combine electrotherapy or accupuncture to the treatment depending on the condition.

A comprehensive assessment is given in the first session and exercise prescriptions are given in the following sessions. Patients may then be referred to the Biokinetist.

CONDITIONS TREATED:

all sporting injuries
muscle, tendon and ligament injuries
neck pain and stiffness
whiplash injuries
low back pain (disc prolapse)
arthritis
sciatica
post-operative rehab
overuse injuries
poor posture (core stability work)
general maintenance and advice for athletes

This State of the art treatment is highly effective for the treatment of Chronic Tendon injuries and Calcific Tendonosis. Particularly Achilles Tendon, Tennis Elbow, Knee Patella - Tendon, Hamstring, Shoulder and Plantar-fasciitis.

Chiropractors are neuro musculo skeletal specialists, trained in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal and joint disorders. Chiropractors use specific adjustments to re-align joints in order to restore normal biomechanics and remove any form of irritation to the nerves that exit the spine, thereby reducing pain and discomfort. Chiropractors aim at treating the cause of the problem as opposed to treating symptoms.

A Biokineticist improves a person's physical status and quality of life through individualized assessment and exercise prescription in the dual context of clinical pathology (acute and chronic) and performance enhancement. A correctly managed rehabilitation exercise program can help a person suffering from:

chronic back pain
knee injuries
shoulder injuries
hip injuries

Sportsmen and women, both elite and recreational, spend many hours training their bodies to peak condition in order to perform and achieve success in their chosen sport. But as Bryce Courtney in the book The Power of One wrote: The mind is the athlete; the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer, jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit further, or box better.

Sport psychology is a discipline of psychology dealing with matters of performance – physical excellence and preparation alone does not determine success, but rather it is this preparation combined with the correct mental state and emotional control that ultimately determine performance.

Sports psychologists work with both elite and recreational athletes, individuals and teams, parents and coaches; areas that a sport psychologist can help with could include the following:

Mental skills training
       - Goal Setting
       - Imagery and Visualization
       - Relaxation and Emotional Control
       - Self-Talk and Cognitive Control
       - Concentration and Focus
       - Pre-competition routines and preparation
       - The Flow experience – Being in ‘the zone’
       - Motivation
       - Dealing with success and failure
Mental Toughness
Helping athletes through injury and rehabilitation
Career advice and coping with retirement or non-selection
Team unity, cohesion and communication
Clinical issues such as:
       - Eating Disorders
       - Depression
       - Anxiety
       - Relationship issues
       - Sleeping problems
Dealing with burn out
Maintaining a balance in sport and life
Talent identification and psychological skills development through Long Term Athlete Development
Educating parents regarding psychological aspects of sport and performance and how best to manage talented children.
Life skills training

The above skills can be applied to any performance area, and there is a growing demand for this type of intervention within the highly competitive world of business.
