There are various types of rehab therapies that are employed and they all have a specific purpose. The decision on what modalities are used from session to session is largely determined by the findings of the rehab therapist at the initial evaluation session. Modifications are made as the patient progresses and as the therapist sees fit.
We also offer acupuncture treatment with De Michelle Thomas and Tellington touch with Sr Debbie Conradie by appointment only.
Our rehab therapists are Sr Antoinette Smit , Sr Joanne Merry & Zandri Basson. We see patients from Monday to Friday, 10am-18:30.
