Jeanne completed her degree in Physiotherapy at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2008.
Following community service, she worked alongside an orthopaedic surgeon until 2011 and in a generalist out-patient practice until 2013 when she started Jeanne Marais Physiotherapy.
The most exciting post-graduate advancement she started was training in the McKenzie method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, an internationally recognised approach to the treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions where patients are truly empowered to continue making treatment progress at home rather than being wholly dependent on therapist intervention and repetitive consultations.
Over the years, Jeanne also attended post-graduate courses in the assessment and treatment of a sensitised nervous system, Advanced Dry needling, Spinal manipulations (clicking/adjusting the spine), and Advanced Kinesiology and Sports Taping to name a few.
Jeanne is happy to assist in addressing painful neuromusculoskeletal conditions like pinched nerves and has a particular interst in treating pain of an unknown origin which hasn't healed with time as one would expect. She will refer you to other relevant health care providers to assist in addressing your condition should the need arise.
Katherine qualified from the University of Cape Town in 2009 and has gained extensive experience in various fields of Physiotherapy while working both in South Africa and England. Her training among others, in the 'Bobath approach' and in the management of dizziness and vestibular conditions have been an invaluable addition to the practice since she joined in January 2019.
She assists patients with home-based treatments during the early post-operative days and with treatment for adult neurological conditions when visits to the rooms may not yet be appropriate. As the aim of rehabilitation is to regain optimal independence and re-integration into society, she'll likely suggest a progression to treatments in the rooms when indicated.
