Monday (12th August) marks the beginning of a new venture with Food For Sport linking up with Constantia Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Centre. You will find me there every morning, 08h00 to 13h00, offering my usual services (nutritional consults, assessments and planning). There are a few exciting things in the pipeline that I hope to bring to anyone interested in the form of metabolic and exercise testing. Keep an eye and ear out for more.
I will still be at Food For Sport HQ at Brookside in Claremont in the afternoons daily from 14h00-18h00. You can now book appointments for either venue to suit you. I am also still available for mobile consults where needed.

Injuries are a common occurrence, but not confined to contact sports such as Rugby, Soccer, Hockey. These injuries range from bruises and muscle strains, to fractures and head injuries. In many cases, these types of injuries are due to overuse of a certain part of the body while participating in a certain activity or sporting discipline, such as bruising or contusions, tendon or muscle strains, stress fractures and ligament sprains.
The Constantia Sports Medicine Centre, Cape Town is a modern, multidisciplinary sports medical facility. Our medical professionals are leaders in their respective fields, offering the latest treatment techniques and state of the art medical equipment. We work closely with the Orthopaedic surgeons at Constantiaberg to provide a full diagnostic, management and rehabilitation solution for all musculoskeletal injuries.
A large focus of the practice is also on preventative medicine emphasizing the benefit of regular exercise as both a form of prevention of chronic diseases and as a treatment. Medical conditions treated range from Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol through to Heart disease, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia and Depression. We run regular cardiac rehabilitation classes as well as pilates and core strength classes. We also provide post surgery exercise programs as well as individualised fitness programs.
