Who Are We?
Welcome to myohealth
We are first line physiotherapists in Cape Town and patients can contact us directly, without being referred.
We provide physiotherapy for people of all ages. Our consultation process consists of a comprehensive assessment followed by a personalised treatment plan. The treatment plan may include a variety of treatment modalities, namely: soft tissue and joint mobilisation, electrotherapy, stretching, specific rehabilitative exercises, strapping and dry needling.
Physiotherapy is used to treat chronic and acute injuries with the main focus on restoring the highest level of function and movement of the body.
Physiotherapy can also help to reduce pain in damaged tissues by accelerating the body’s ability to heal itself.
We have a strong focus on the latest evidence based techniques. We offer our clients a holistic service that is customised according to their needs, state of health and fitness.

Our Services and Special Interests
Pre and Post-Operative Orthopaedic Rehabilitation
Before or after a patient has had surgery, we use rehabilitation to improve muscle function around the joint. This is to say, before surgery we aim to strengthen the muscle so that recovery takes place faster after the surgery. Post operatively we aim to improve general function and decrease pain associated with surgery. This would allow for a faster return to function.
Pre-Season Fitness Screen
This is a tool used for veterans or beginners starting a new sport. The aim is to identify predisposing factors that could cause injury during sport based on posture and functional testing. The tool is vital in preventing potential injury from occurring using pre-habilitation, education and other exercises.
