As our lone male therapist at Wapadrand Medical Centre, Gerbrandt brings a dynamic presence with him. His enthusiastic and humorous approach is a welcome addition to the team.
With an academic background in physiology and human kinetics Gerbrant completed his education with a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Pretoria. With post graduate qualifications in Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) and Dry Needling (thus far), he is relentless in expanding his knowledge and keeping up to date with the latest treatment approaches.
Adding to a multi-dimensional treatment approach, he is also a qualified Pilates instructor and coach in multiple sports. Having participated at provincial level Gerbrant understands the importance of not only returning to competition as soon as possible, but also the value in injury prevention training.
Gerbrant is currently serving as the Chair of the North Gauteng Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy Group (special interest group of the South African Society of Physiotherapy) and as an assistant at the OMT course (2018).
With a special interest in sport, Gerbrant has several years’ experience in field side work as medic and physio, also having worked with multiple sport teams, in varying capacity such as; SA Davis Cup Tennis team, SA A Cricket team, SA National Cricket Academy, Gauteng Golden Fireballs Netbal, NWU Pukke Cricket and the Blue Bulls Rugby Union (Super 15 & Women’s).
