About Dr Henri Myburgh
Dr Henri Myburgh qualified with a Masters Degree in Chiropractic from the Durban University of Technology. In addition he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Science at the University of Stellenbosch in 2009. He further successfully completed the supplementary modules of the BSc Sport Science degree to be competent to practice as a Personal Fitness Instructor.
He is very driven and passionate about sport and chiropractic. Being a competitive sportsman himself that represented his province in athletics and the Stellenbosch University (MATIES) 1st rugby team, he is well aware of the benefits of an active lifestyle and also the toll that it takes on the body. According to him chiropractic will not only optimize your potential in sports but in all facets of life. His emphasis is based on a healthy, active lifestyle and optimal functional spinal health. “The Chiropractic profession is unique in the sense that it is focused on treating the CAUSE of the complaint/injury/syndrome and not just the symptoms”. Chiropractic has grown immensely to become the third most utilized healthcare profession following medicine and dentistry. Low back pain has become the second most common medical complaint following a common cold. Some of the biggest risk factors being our sedentary-type lifestyle and occupation-related strain (computers, tablets, smart phones etc.). The spine is a mechanical entity and needs to be managed/treated mechanically, preferably preventatively to help decrease the risk of back-injury and possibly slow the process of degeneration/’wear-and-tear’ – Chiropractic can help.
His approach involves: making an accurate diagnosis by taking a full medical case history, physical and regional examinations followed by the incorporation of evidence-based treatment protocols. Treatment includes: Spinal and extremity manipulative therapy, soft tissue/trigger point therapy (dry needling, active/passive release therapy, impulse adjusting, kinesiotaping and strapping), tendinopathies (tendonosis, tendinitis, calcification – extracorporeal shockwave therapy), patient education and referrals.
He owns another practice in Port Elizabeth and has been in practice there for six years. He is extremely excited and enthusiastic about the recent relocation to the Western Cape and looks forward in treating patients at his new existing practice – Somerset Chiropractic
