M.Physio (SUN SA), Accreditation in Women’s Health Physio (Bradford UK), B.Physio
Corina graduated from UCT in 1997 with a B.Sc.Physiotherapy, and joined the brain-drain to the UK where she became involved in pelvic health. She returned to South Africa after completing a post graduate qualification in Women’s Health, and has been based at the Kingsbury Hospital ever since.
In 2016 she completed her Masters in Physiotherapy through Stellenbosch University with original research into pelvic floor muscle function during gait. She sees all pelvic patients – Women’s Health, Men’s Health and paediatric bladder bowel dysfunction.
The majority of her caseload involves chronic pain with multiple co-morbidity – everything going wrong all at once. Special interests include anxiety and its impact on function, and anything to do with gait (human locomotion).
She was a founding member of the Pelvic and Women’s Health Physiotherapy Group post graduate training courses, and lectures extensively both nationally and internationally.
Michael graduated in 2006 from UCT as a physiotherapist. He successfully completed his SPT1 in 2010 and is now lecturing part-time on the course as well. He is responsible for teaching the on-field skills for physiotherapists as well as how to travel with a team.
He is the head physiotherapist for the UCT Varsity Cup team and league side. During his stint with the Varsity Cup, UCT has been fortunate to win two Varsity Cup titles and a Super League A title, and in 2015 they won the inaugural World Universities World Cup in Oxford. Michael has been responsible for the implementation of injury prevention screening and intervention protocols for the UCT rugby football club, and he is currently collecting his data to be used for a masters in injury prevention. Based on a clinical perspective, this intervention has great potential.
Michael assists in clinical education of UCT physiotherapy students: on-field skills, taping techniques as well as the treatment of various lower limb injuries.
He is married and has two sons. He enjoys surfing when he gets a chance in his hectic schedule.
