Jeanne is a qualified and registered physiotherapist. She completed her degree in Physiotherapy at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2008.
After completion of her community service year at Tembisa Hospital in 2009, she worked alongside an orthopaedic surgeon and in a generalist out-patient practice until 2013 when she started Jeanne Marais Physiotherapy, which was first located in Dunkeld West.
Over the years, she attended post-graduate courses in Advanced Dry needling, Spinal manipulations (clicking/adjusting the spine), Ankle And Foot Rehabilitation, Shoulder Assessment and Rehabilitation, and Advanced Kinesiology and Sports Taping to name a few. More recently, she started training for the treatment of persistent pain conditions as well as training in the McKenzie Method, a mechanical diagnostic treatment approach empowering patients to be independent and in control.
Jeanne is happy to assist in addressing painful neuromusculoskeletal conditions, particularly pain of an unknown origin which hasn't healed as expected to over time. She will also refer you to other relevant health care providers to assist in addressing your condition should that be indicated.
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 African 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.
