Welcome to our Physiotherapy Practice at Kloof Road Medical Centre (est. 2004).

Our Physiotherapy Practice can treat the whole family, from your newborn baby to their great grandparents.

We have 3 experienced physiotherapists with varied special interests, which means that we are able to help a wide variety of patients.

All our therapists have attended and continue to attend postgraduate courses (both locally and internationally) to further their skills in their chosen special interest fields.

We are also the first practice in South Africa to offer The Gillespie Approach of Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (since 2011).

How can we help you?

Adults / Children:

Our Physiotherapists can help with:

  • Back and neck pain / stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Jaw / TMJ pain and stiffness
  • Muscle / Ligament sprains, tears and strains
  • Orthopaedic Conditions
  • Sports injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Post-operative physio and rehab
  • Scar Release
  • Women’s health issues eg. Incontinence, constipation, prolapse
  • Pelvic floor pain and dysfunction
  • Post pregnancy pelvic floor strengthening
  • Pregnancy related back pain / pelvic pain

If you suffer from any of the above, visit one of our physiotherapists for an assessment and treatment.  They will develop an individual treatment plan for you, which will draw from their extensive skill sets, some of which include joint mobilizations, myofascial release, craniosacral fascial release, neural mobilization, massage, dry needling, kinesiotaping, strengthening and stretching exercises.

One of our physiotherapists has a special interest in treating Woman’s Health Issues such as pelvic floor pain and dysfunction and incontinence. Incontinence is a symptom, not a disease and can be treated.   There is no need to suffer in silence.  Woman’s Health Physiotherapists are here to help you!

Babies / Young Children:

Babies can be treated from birth!  Treatment is very gentle.  Your baby guides the treatment and so we cannot hurt your baby, manipulate any joints or force anything to move that the baby doesn’t want to move.

Our physiotherapists can help with:

  • Infant feeding issues (eg. Difficulty latching, weak suck, difficulty swallowing, gagging on dummy / solids, difficulty burping / winding, favouring one side to feed)
  • Stiff / Uncomfortable babies
  • Spinal Curvatures – eg C-Curve, Scoliosis or Torticollis (neck always held rotated or tilted to the same side side)
  • Hip Misalignment
  • Asymmetrical head shape
  • Neck, back and joint pain and stiffness
  • Jaw pain / clicking, Difficulty opening mouth wide
  • Niggly / fussy babies who cry a lot for no apparent reason
  • Colic / Reflux
  • Constipation / Gas
  • Mild delay in reaching developmental milestones
  • Post-surgery / Scar tissue release

Treatment is very gentle.  It does not involve manipulation of any joints – we don’t manipulate the bones of the skull, jaw, spine or any other joint in the body.  Rather by gently treating the fascia (connective tissue), muscles and neural system, we help promote the joints, spine and skull bones to realign gently without manipulation.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our Physiotherapy Practice, and hope to be able to help you and your children on your journey to optimal health and well-being.

Each of our Physiotherapists have a slightly different special interest.   To help you to know who to visit for each of your family members we have included a brief description below:
