About our Physiotherapists
Is the founder and owner of MD Physiotherapy. She is a registered physiotherapist and completed her BSc Physiotherapy Honours degree at WITS University and she has completed many post-graduate courses such as: Sports Physiotherapy (SPT1), Dry Needling, Kinesiology Taping, The TMJ and Sinus Pain Course, and Electrical Muscle Stimulation and many others.
In 2019, Micaela completed a Digital Marketing Course for the business as well as a course by Andy Thomas specific to the Assessment and Treatment of the Asymmetrical Horse Rider. So far this year in 2020, Micaela has tried to broaden her scope of practice to be able to help patients with chronic pain which the usual modalities only help partly or temporarily with a type of treatment called Craniosacral Therapy.
On a personal note, Micaela is married with a beautiful daughter born in 2018, and another little blessing coming later this year
Micaela has been practicing in sports and orthopaedic physiotherapy for over 7 years treating patients with various sports injuries. This also includes back and neck pain and post-operative orthopaedic cases. She has a special interest in team sports and has treated many patients who enjoy soccer, rugby, hockey, as well as horse riding where the combination of horse and rider are closely considered.
She prides herself in providing dedicated 45 minute individualized assessments with the aim to get her patients back to their daily activities. Her approach is very “hands on” as she believes this is essential in delivering the desired results. Depending on the condition Micaela occasionally combines electrotherapy, muscle stimulation or dry needling to the treatment.
