Accredited SASMA Physiotherapist
Our physiotherapists are members of the South African Sports Medicine Association which is a non-profit, multidisciplinary professional and scientific society that is dedicated to motivation, responses, adaptation and health of people involved in sport and exercise.
This helps to endeavor to stay up to date to related research that is relevant to keeping individuals active in their sport and exercise activities. This includes attending meetings, participating in a journal club, attending biannual conferences and being actively involved in the health and welfare of the sporting community. Criteria needs to be met to ensure credibility is maintained within the professions to ensure the public is receiving a certain standard of care.
SASMA also creates a valued network of various healthcare providers, deepening our ability to promptly refer our patients to an appropriate specialist if a condition requires such referrals, thus ensuring patients are getting the most benefit out of our interdisciplinary relationships.
