    About Debra

    About Debra

    Debra Ludgater is a Registered Physiotherapist who has recently relocated to Gauteng from Howick in the KZN Midlands. She worked as a physio in private practice in Howick and has also been the physiotherapist at Michaelhouse School for the last 17 years. Debra has a strong interest in sports physiotherapy but also treats people of all ages with physical problems caused by illness, accident or ageing. Physiotherapy is a healthcare profession which sees human movement as central to the health and well-being of individuals. The main goal of physiotherapists is, therefore, to keep people pain free, moving and active. Debra herself is a keen runner and tri-athlete and has completed 5 Comrades Marathons and numerous tri-athlons, including a full Ironman.

    Debra utilizes skilled hands on physiotherapy including neural tissue mobilisation, myofascial and connective tissue release, triggerpoint therapy and spinal joint mobilisation and manipulation. This hands on therapy is augmented by other modalities such as dry needling, neuropropriceptive taping and electrotherapy (eg, ultrasound / interferential)
