Toy Janse van Rensburg PRETORIA

MSc Physiotherapy



“There’s nothing more important than our health – that’s our principal capital asset.” – Arlen Specter


As a physiotherapist, Toy is privileged to improve people’s quality of life by ensuring optimal physical functioning and wellness. She has gained extensive out-patient experience over the last 19 years while working with different experienced clinicians in a variety of in- and out-patient settings. She practiced as a physiotherapist in the UK from 2001 to 2010 as a member of a multidisciplinary team.


She has improved her clinical expertise by attending a range of musculoskeletal courses to become more specialised in the management and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, including chronic pain patients.


Her focus has shifted from not only alleviating the patient’s pain, but assessing the patient holistically to identify and treat the cause of the problem rather than the symptoms. Her special interests include musculoskeletal physiotherapy, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and sport physiotherapy; in particular initiating treatment in the acute phase of the injury, as well as injury prevention. She has also completed an MSc degree in Physiotherapy (Sport) and obtained a certificate of competence from the University of Cape Town in vestibular assessment and rehabilitation therapy.




Paul Durand PRETORIA

MSc Physiotherapy in progress



Soon after Paul graduated, he developed an interest in musculoskeletal and sport physiotherapy. He is passionate about movement and has become experienced in the re-training and optimisation of the correct movement patterns in athletes and active individuals. These specialised rehabilitation techniques help to prevent re-injury and improve athletic performance.


Paul believes that the correct combination of movement rehabilitation and manual therapy techniques is necessary to obtain the best results when treating patients.


As a BASI-certified pilates instructor, he offers individual and group classes. These classes are also safe for individuals who have had previous injuries and/or back problems. In 2012, Paul qualified as a Sport Physiotherapist after completing a postgraduate certification run by the South African Society of Physiotherapists. He is currently completing a Masters degree in Exercise and Sports Physiotherapy at the University of Cape Town. His research is focussed on running-related injuries.


Paul is an amateur road and trail runner, does CrossFit, and enjoys helping recreational and professional runners and athletes get back into the game.
