Meet the Physiotherapist
Hi! My name is Chanté. I grew up in the small town, Graaff-Reinet, and moved to Cape Town to pursue my dream of becoming a Physiotherapist.
I graduated with a Bachelors of Physiotherapy (Honours) Cum Laude at the University of Stellenbosch. I have found my love for working with children whilst on clinical placement at the Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town. I love the idea that I can help children live their best life while also making therapy fun through play. I have experience working with children with various neurological and respiratory conditions. I did my community service year at Khayelitsha Hospital where I worked in clinics seeing children with CP and Down syndrome and also proving early intervention for developmental delayed babies.
I’m passionate about working with children and assisting them to reach their fullest potential through enjoyable, therapeutic play techniques. I feel that parent/carer involvement is important, therefore, I love to educate and guide parents to work with their children to optimise their physical development. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors like going to the beach or out cycling and hiking.
I've worked with Chante in a multidisciplinary team my patients being hard of hearing or high risk patients. She has always treated them all with such kindness and always so understanding and willing to help wherever possible. I would highly recommend her! Just a great experience all in all.Tayla Karsten
