I am a highly trained and motivated physiotherapist, who believes in hands on physiotherapy.
I qualified with a B. Physiotherapy degree in 2002. I completed my post training specializing in Sports and Manipulative Therapy. I found my passion in sports medicine and exercise science and have gained valuable experience across a range of professional sporting environments. Starting out with rugby players and thereafter covering a full spectrum from swimmers, cyclists, runners and triathletes, focusing on rehabilitation and injury prevention.
Founded in 2005, as an physiotherapy practice in Potchefstroom in the North Western Province, and later at Polokwane, in the Limpopo Province, Lizanne Mackenzie Physiotherapy is now located at The Fitness Fort training center in Linden, Johannesburg. I have worked at the highest level of sports physiotherapy, at national level for 2 years when I became the Leopards u/21 rugby team’s Physiotherapist. In addition to this, I also compete in long and Olympic distance triathlons. Through my excellent results, I have managed to gain Elite Age Grouper status in the triathlon world. My specific interests include the fascia-manipulation approach. I am one of only a few physiotherapists in South Africa who has completed these treatment courses successfully. With extensive experience in sport injuries, I offer my patients a hands on approach to treating musculoskeletal conditions ranging from annoying aches and pains to acute injuries.
