Lizelle graduated from The University of the Western Cape with a BSc Physiotherapy degree in 2012. She completed her Community Service in Piketberg where she set-up and managed a new Physiotherapy department. She then moved to Knysna, where she joined a private practice at the Knysna Life Private Hospital where she was exposed to a wide variety of conditions and focused on evidence-based treatments.
She has completed various courses including Dry needling, Sports taping and her Postgraduate Orthopaedic Manual Techniques course in 2016. This has improved her evaluation, clinical reasoning and management of all neuromusculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions. In addition, Lizelle has completed chronic pain modules, and will continue to do various post-grad courses to enhance her knowledge and practical skills. She is able to apply these skills to improve the quality of life and function of all ages.
In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and does leisurely evening runs to keep fit.
Lizelle is based at our Intercare practice where she treats outpatients, as well as in-hospital patients pre- and post-operatively.
