UPPER Highway resident Noluthando Mzobe, “Nolly”, is a member of the Debbie Cameron Physiotherapy team and has achieved her post graduate diploma in the treatment of neck and back pain which is referred to as orthopaedic manipulation therapy.

Mzobe is now part of the Orthopaedic Manipulative Physiotherapy Group (OMPTG) which is a special interest group of the South African Society of Physiotherapy, established in 1974.

The physiotherapists that belong to this group have a special interest in assessing and treating neuro-musculoskeletal, spinal and peripheral joint disorders using a clinically reasoned hands-on approach of manual therapy and rehabilitation. OMPTG encompasses, and is driven by available scientific and clinical evidence, and the biopsychosocial framework of each individual patient.

The South African OMPTG is affiliated with the International Federation of Manipulative Physiotherapists (IFOMPT), a non-government federation representing international collaboration in manipulative therapy.

IFOMPT’s vision: “Worldwide promotion of excellence and unity in clinical and academic standards for manual and/or musculoskeletal physiotherapists.”

IFOMPT is a recognised sub-group of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy, which in turn is a part of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Mzobe studied for her degree in physiotherapy at UCT and her university experience was good.

Not only did she receive a first for her thesis in her graduating year but played 1st team basketball for UCT.

She was the dining hall monitor, co-ordinator for the receptionists and residence sub-warden.

According to Mzobe, it seems like everyone in the Upper Highway
area plays sport, be cycling, paddling, running or gym.

“Everyone I have treated takes my advice to heart and is dedicated to the recovery process which makes my job rewarding.

In her spare time Mzobe enjoys playing violin and serving in the church.
