Our aim is to improve patients’ quality of life through skilled evaluation and treatment that reduces their pain and restores movement and physical function. This enables you to resume your regular activities of daily living including work, school, recreational activities and personal care. Our goal is also to maintain patients’ mobility, muscle strength, and exercise endurance.
We strive to improve the lives and daily functioning of children who suffer from a wide range of injuries and congenital conditions. Our role is to work with the child and their family to assist each child to reach their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation at home, in school, and in the community.
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 completed the Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT) training and also the introduction to MAES Therapy. 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.
