Michael Robson

Michael Robson

Chiropractor

Michael Robson is a passionate Chiropractor who has lived and grown up on the golden shores of Durban, South Africa. His Chiropractor master’s research was performed on the beneficial effects of chiropractic manipulation on sporting performance.

He has been involved in a multidisciplinary team of Biokineticists, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Personal Trainers since 2016 as well as many sporting teams in private practice.

Through this Michael was able to combine his passion for health and wellness into holistic chiropractic care.

In his diversified practice he aims to treat the underlying cause of the injury or disease and not just the symptom of pain. It is achieved by the combination of various joint and muscle tests along with posture assessment to evaluate the body for the source of pain. Patients are then educated on their specific condition and the how to move forward in treating the diagnosed condition.

Many modalities are incorporated when treating the joints and muscles of the body. A combination of chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy and rehabilitation (strength and body weight exercises) to provide holistic healthcare are used. Each patient gets individualised treatment and assessment as no two people are the same. Whether sitting at the office from nine till five or an elite athlete, you will get individualised care.

Chiropractors are known to treat many spinal conditions such as migraines, headaches, lower back pain, sciatica, and disc injury. Chiropractors also treat extremity conditions such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, knee pain and hip pain. Often the sources of this pain can be traced back to the spine itself.
