Physiotherapists are trained healthcare professionals that help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
The core purpose at SSPMC is to encourage development thus enabling people to stay in work, continue with family responsibilities and remain independent for as long as possible. At SSPMC we work closely with other health practitioners both within Netcare Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital as well as surrounding hospitals. This way of management ensures our clients receive an integrated and holistic team approach to restoring function.
Our physiotherapists have a passion for movement, health, and fitness. This allows us to help our athletic clientele return to their respective sports through evidence-based treatment and rehabilitative protocols.
For integrative, compassionate and high-quality assessment and treatment, look no further than the Sports Science Physiotherapy and Medical Centre.
A Chiropractor is a health care professional who specializes in the health and function of the spine and nervous system. Many people think that Chiropractors can only help with problems such as back pain, neck pain and headaches, however Chiropractors can often help people with pain and dysfunction elsewhere in the body.
Chiropractic care is really about total health and well-being, it is about helping people to feel great and get the most out of life by functioning at their optimal potential.
At SSPMC, our Chiropractor Dr. Aaryn Camitsis works through forming close connections with his clients to establish the best possible treatment approach.
The practice focuses on children and adults. We help children that may have speech impediments. Support adults that may have suffered from strokes.
The therapist will conduct the online session with you the client via Skype. Therapy materials are managed via the computer screen and can be seen by both the client and the therapist simultaneously. Any additional materials and homework programs can be emailed. Therapy activities will generally be the same as those delivered in the face-to-face environment.
At SSPMC, we have a strong relationship with CTNS. Psychologists affiliated with Cape Town Neuropsychology Services (CTNS group) have a special interest in working with clients who are experiencing cognitive problems secondary to various conditions such as:
• Brain injury
• Substance use
• General psychiatric conditions
The CTNS group offers neuropsychological assessment. This involves the evaluation of brain function through structured and systematic behavioral observation.
We presently offer face-to-face comprehensive neuropsychological assessment and screening. Additionally, we offer remote assessment through Cambridge Brain Sciences. Assessment aims to provide diagnostic clarification to both you and your treating team. Additionally assessment provides insight into the functional impact of your difficulty, guiding treatment and intervention decisions.
Furthermore the CTNS group offers psychotherapy for individuals, and families, who have been affected by the disorder.
A Massage Therapist performs therapeutic massages on clients to improve circulation, promote relaxation, and relieve stress, pain and injuries.
At SSPMC, our Massage Therapists collaborate with other professionals such as chiropractors, dieticians, psychologists and physiotherapists to assist with treatments.
Intermittent Pneumatic compression – Rapid Reboot
Rapid Reboot utilizes dynamic, sequential compression, a concept based on decades of research into biomimicry, or the science of simulating the body’s natural biomechanics to enhance physiological benefits.
Rapid Reboot’s dynamic compression dramatically enhances blood flow, improves lymphatic function, flushes out lactic acid, eliminates muscle soreness, and increases mobility – all of which help you recover faster and get back to your best.
Rapid Reboot offers higher pressure options and faster cycles than the competition, meaning greater efficiency and more results.
The use of pure 95% oxygen in a high pressure atmosphere has been shown to have extraordinary health benefits.
The hyperbaric chamber has pure oxygen coming in at pressures 1.4 – 3 times the normal atmospheric pressure.
Treatment times range from 30-90 minutes. Using oxygen at higher pressures causes up to 20 times more oxygen to be absorbed by the blood and transferred to injured organs and tissues.
This speeds healing and recovery time in addition to other benefits.
