Sun Valley Physiotherapy is a home based practice run by the owner,  Meghan Olckers who graduated BSC Physiotherapy from UCT in 2011. She continued working as a physiotherapist and developed a love for rehabilitating sports and muscular skeletal conditions. In 2018 she graduated with a Masters degree from UWC and has also completed various courses in taping and dry needling. At this practice the approach is patient centered where the treatment aims is to identify and treat the cause of the injury and not to just treat the symptoms arising from it. The rehabilitation and techniques used are tailormade to suit your unique and individual needs.
