At the Mandy Knaap practice, we most often use a combination of different techniques in treating our patients. This has been proven to be the most effective and the emphasis is on hands-on techniques which research has shown to be best practice. Physiotherapy treatments are usually 45 minutes long. This provides enough time for us to properly assess and treat your condition and to give relevant advice and demonstrate exercises. We treat patients of all ages including sportsmen, sportswomen, children, dancers and pregnant women.
Mandy Knaap Physiotherapy was established on 1 May 1993 at Bayside Centre. In 1995 we moved to Blaauwberg Therapy Centre which is a multidisciplinary centre established by myself and Janet Bytheway, a clinical psychologist.
Myself and my colleagues, Dunia and Gill, treat mostly neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, including headaches, neck and back conditions, sports injuries (strains, sprains and tears) including dancing injuries, peripheral joint problems such as tennis elbow, overuse and repetitive strain injuries. We also treat other conditions including sinusitis, chest conditions (e.g. bronchitis and pneumonia), bursitis, bedsores and other open wounds, BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) as well as postural problems in kids including low tone, scoliosis and hypermobility.
We give advice on (correct posture and computer workstation set-up) and preventative back and neck care. We do dry needling and various taping techniques including McConnell and Kinesio taping. We also do one-on-one rehabilitation including one-on-one pilates based rehabilitation after back injuries, surgery or sports injuries. We treat both acute and chronic problems and do maintenance treatment. Although we have equipment in the practice, we concentrate on a hands-on treatment.
We offer home visits when required. Our treatments are 45 minutes long. This provides enough time for us to properly assess and treat your condition and to give you relevant advice and demonstrate exercises. You may be given the exercises to do at home so that your treatment can continue between sessions. This may well limit the number of sessions needed for you to recover. Our treatment rooms are private and air-conditioned.
We charge the recommended medical aid tariffs and submit directly to your medical scheme for your convenience. We accept most Debit and Credit cards. We are open 8.00am – 6.30pm weekdays and 8.30am – 12.00pm on Saturdays.
You are welcome to contact us if you have any questions.
