Sarah graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2010 with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy (Hons). She completed her Community Service year at Cecilia Makiwane Hospital in 2011 and thereafter worked at Frere Hospital between 2012 and Ferbruary 2015. Sarah also taught Pilates at the Dynamic Body Studio in East London from 2013 until February 2015.

In 2019 Sarah completed the Orthopaedic Manual Therapy course. Orthopaedic Manual Therapy/Neuromusculoskeletal therapy is a specialised area of physiotherapy for the management of spinal and peripheral joint disorders. Based on clinical reasoning and the latest available evidence, specific treatment approaches including manual techniques and therapeutic exercises are used. In Orthopaedic Manual Therapy the biopsychosocial framework of each patient is taken into account during the treatment process. The aims of orthopaedic manual therapy are to reduce pain, support the inflammatory process, improve musculoskeletal dysfunctions, rehabilitate normal movement patterns and improve functional levels, thereby returning individuals to their life roles and preventing the recurrence of symptoms.


Sarah's main interests are orthopaedic, sport and neurological conditions. She has continued her post-graduate training through a number of courses, including:

  • Module 1 and 2 of Dry Needling

  • Module 1 and 2 of Kinesiotaping

  • Basi Pilates Mat Teacher Training

  • Level 1 Stecco Course - 2016

  • Integrative Fascial Release course - Autonomic manipulation. - Steven Goldstein - 2016
