I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2016 which is an autoimmune disease where a person’s immune system attacks their own body. It is a chronic condition, meaning it does not go away, but can be managed. The immune system is partly made up of white blood cells in your body that fight off disease. In lupus, these white blood cells attack healthy parts of the body. It causes swelling and tissue damage, and can attack any part of the body. Inflammation and oxidative stress are the main causes of most diseases. If you can control inflammation and neutralise free radicals, then you will remain healthy. My daughter, Danielle Roberts is a Registered Dietician. She addressed diet, taking a functional approach using natural antioxidants from leafy greens, berries, brightly coloured vegetables & salads. In 2017 my white blood count was low, and my inflammatory markers were high. I started Cryo Conditioning, starting with a program of 10 sessions over 3 weeks. I have since maintained the Cryo sessions once a week. During whole body Cryotherapy, pro-inflammatory cytokines are decreased and anti-inflammatory cytokines are increased, causing a powerful anti-inflammatory response throughout the body. The body achieves an improved ability to eliminate free radicals, naturalize toxins and repair cellular damage. Needless to say my inflammatory markers have gone down to ZERO – unheard of and quite miraculous. Consistency is key when it comes to taking back control of your health. My blood results have normalised, another positive sign. Cryotherapy is an essential part of keeping Lupus under control.

I’ve come to KPMED to obtain treatment for severe lower back pain. I was completely debilitated from the pain and could not resume martial arts training. The physiotherapists attended to me, and the treatment was effective as I was back at the gym within a few days. In addition to that I was given a breakdown of physical activity to prevent the lower back pain from recurring. A professional and welcoming health centre with friendly service.
- Darell Moodley
Kings Park Sports Medical Centre has been my choice of Physiotherapists and other Professionals ever since I moved to Durban 3 decades ago. It has been a long trusting relationship built up with its founder and has evolved into a friendship with all the practitioners and office staff over the years. The service has been professional from the point of booking to the treatments no matter who is attending to you. Looking forward to many more years of the same!

My name is Cindy Hack and I am captain of the South African women’s indoor hockey Team (going on 8 years) I have been playing top sport, hockey specifically for over 20 years .Through national and provincial tournaments and camps when needed I have always been treated and seen to by this top Physiotherapy team and I can honestly say that without the KPSMC team I would never have made a few tournaments and matches! The service they give is professional, efficient and personal and nothing short of the absolute best! I am still playing top sport now and have achieved my ultimate dreams and with no doubt could have ever have done this without them .I will always be forever grateful!

My body has improved so much with the CryoSauna, specifically a reduction in my chronic knee pain. I have also seen an improvement with the Cryo Facial, no more facials and less wrinkles. It is very invigorating.
- Jeanne Carbutt
Majority of my life consists of me swimming everyday, sometimes even twice a day as well as a gym session. I’ve found that when I’ve done a cryo session, my recovery is twice as fast and I’m able to put in 110% effort into my next session. Cryo has become a super important role in my swimming career not only because of the fast recovery but also because it helps prevent/aid injuries. And these are just two of the many incredible benefits you get from cryotherapy.

This serves to express my gratitude to Ms MEGAN TONKINSON ( Physiotherapist):
I first consulted Megan at Virgin Active, Gateway, for injuries I had sustained from a fall three years ago and which injuries caused severe right-knee pain, shin and ankle pain, …resulting in impairment of movement, severe “shin-splint” pain and discomfort over a period of three years. The symptoms became progressively worse until I received a series of treatments from Megan.
Ms TONKINSON initially requested X-rays and after her diagnosis set about treating my knee and shins. Megan utilized various modalities of treatment including Ultrasound, movement rehabilitation, stretching exercises as well as massage. She also prescribed home exercises and stretching, followed by weekly assessments of my capacity to actually do the prescribed exercises.
Megan utilized her skills to make a proper diagnosis and thereafter focused on rehabilitative physiotherapy in a series of weekly treatments. I was particularly impressed with Megan’s thoroughness, caring and professional utilization of her physio-skills which resulted in a progressive improvement of my pain and discomfort.
My condition has improved to such an extent that I walk an average of 20km a week, do prescribed gym exercises as well as cycling.
My pain has disappeared and I have stopped using anti-inflammatory medication.
Sincere gratitude to Ms MEGAN TONKINSON.
Megan is highly recommended.

Totally satisfied with the services I am receiving and my experiences at KPSMC. They are a great facility with wonderful admin staff and fantastic therapists. I have had no issues whatsoever.
I am most grateful to my awesome "rehab team", biokineticist (Keenan Naidoo) and physiotherapist (Megan Tonkinson and temporary stand-in Misha Erasmus).
They are professional, knowledgeable and highly competent and render their services with a wonderful demeanour for good measure.
I went to them with debilitating back issues. They conducted their evaluations and Megan also checked my scans and x-rays to determine the required treatments. I see them twice weekly and they have also provided a programme for me to follow at home.
We are not done yet, but I am absolutely thrilled with the progress we have made with my issues to date. Progress has been so good that I have also been able to start doing a decent amount of swimming. I haven't felt this good in years.
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
A heartfelt, THANK YOU, to a special team.
