ABOUT SSPC

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

To provide every patient with evidence-based physiotherapy interventions to improve their quality of life.

Since

2002

History of SSPC

The first physiotherapy practice at the SSISA was owned by Dr Wayne Diesel. It was then purchased by two physiotherapists, Theo Calligeris and Matime Diale and renamed the Sports Science Physiotherapy Centre in August 2002. It underwent many changes over the years since inception and had another change of management in November 2020.

It is now owned by Rashaad Jakoet, who started at the institute in 2001. In November 2020, the SSPC opened a satellite practice at the Velocity Gym in Hout Bay, where the same high standards of treatment, and access to great facilities to aid patient rehabilitation, is upheld. The Sports Science Physiotherapy Centre has always upheld the highest standards in service delivery and is still committed to an evidence based, innovative approach to rehabilitation and sports therapy.
