What Is Physio?

Physiotherapy is aimed at assessing, rehabilitating and preventing human movement disorders.

Love for exercise and the outdoors helps us to relate to our more athletic clientele and their injuries, whilst also instilling the need to teach these tools to others through the practice of Pilates and strength classes.

If you are looking for a Physiotherapist in Cape Town who can combine high level skills with compassion and integrity you need look no further.

Center In Cape Town

Physio Cape Town is a collaboration between Tamsin Hodgson Physio, San-Mari Coetzer Physio & Lucy Ferrao Physio. Tamsin established her practice in 2008 and since then it has been the mission of all our Physiotherapists and staff to provide the best all round service possible for our clients. We look at our clients holistically, as a unit, and not just as a body part. We are extremely interested in rehabilitation and we strive to diagnose and treat the cause of the problem instead of just the symptoms.

We work closely with other health practitioners to ensure that when needed, our clients receive an integrated team approach to restoring them back to normal function.

I have been going to Tamsin for the last 12 years for Physiotherapy and more recently for Gyrokinesis and Pilates classes. The classes are brilliant and always fun. Tamsin has helped me achieve great results and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoy the classes.

Tamsin Hodgson Physiotherapy has all the tools, not only passionate and knowledgeable physiotherapists, but rehab classes like Gyrokinesis and Pilates. Having a Physiotherapist that knows your injuries in these classes ensures that you don’t do more damage. I find the Gyrokinesis classes are great for strengthening and for preventing reoccurring injuries.

Tamsin Hodgson is the best physiotherapist imaginable. Not only does she have the ability accurately to diagnose what is amiss with a shoulder or leg, a foot or your back, she also knows how immediately to bring relief through massage and other hands-on treatment, and to prescribe effective exercises as a follow-up. I have been a patient of hers for 10 years now and have referred numerous friends and family members to her and not once have any of them been disappointed with the wonderful treatment they have received at her practice. Because being so thorough and caring, Tamsin has managed to ensure that her colleagues show the same commitment and expertise as she.

This is a really great physiotherapy practice – caring, professional, talented and really helpful. I have had physio sessions as well as attend the Pilates classes and have found the teamwork, the attention to detail, the vibe really great! Most important, I have benefitted enormously from their professional approach which in my experience, started with really being listened to and understood. The therapy I’ve received feels as though it’s designed for me personally!

I have been attending Tamsin’s Pilates and Gyrokinesis classes for close on 3 years. I arrived with a serious foot injury having been told I would probably never be able to run again. By building up my core muscles and flexibility I am now back to running without any pain. Tamsin is a fantastic teacher. She has a good sense of humour, an amazing knowledge of the human body and manages to give each person in the class individual attention. The combination of Gyro and Pilates keeps me strong and flexible and injury free. The 2 really complement each other.

I was referred to Tamsin Hodgson by my daughter at the beginning of the year when I had a problem with my knees.  I had been to another physiotherapist and struggled to get him to give me some exercises in writing and photos so that I could do the exercises correctly, he was talking about me needing surgery if there was no improvement within a week – there was no improvement !   I found Tamsin very good at getting to the core of the problem and giving me exercises to do which definitely helped and I am back to exercising regularly again.  She is all about trying to MAKE her patients help themselves to heal and not to just rely on her to do everything.  She also phoned me once or twice out of the blue to find out how I was getting on which I really appreciated very much.  She cares about patients and does not think of them as a means to get rich.  Thank you Tamsin, I will be referring my friends to you.

I had two knee replacements done in Stellenbosch: in July 2014 my right knee was replaced and the left knee in July 2015. A friend recommended Tamsin to me and she was absolutely right: one cannot wish for a more encouraging and hands-on physiotherapist! After both operations I started going to Tamsin a week after surgery and worked with her for close on ten weeks in both instances. During these physically and sometimes emotionally difficult post-operative times, it was always the highlight of the week to spend an hour with Tamsin. Her hands-on approach was always totally motivating. Although I was often drained by the effort of exercise and undergoing massage during that hour, I always left inspired and feeling much lighter. Her strong hands and clear indication of the exercises I needed to do during the week, motivated me to do the utmost to improve my strength. Thanks to Tamsin’s professional expertise, her kindness and moral support I now have strong knees and am extremely thankful that Tamsin is my physiotherapist. I trust her with every limb in my body.

During late 2014 I started doing short triathlons, when I developed a hamstring problem which I couldn’t get rid of with “normal” recovery measures. After an internet search I found an article published by Tamsin which made a lot sense to me, so I changed over to her practice for treatment. She managed to sort out my hamstring problem in time for my triathlon without even touching it, which impressed me thoroughly! What followed was an on-going relationship of not only physio treatments by Tamsin’s practice, but also teaching an awareness philosophy of one’s muscle mechanics and how to take care of it with on-going strengthening and flexibility exercises. All of this culminated into me being able to do the South African Ironman in 2016. I can honestly say that if it was not for her practice’s treatment and philosophy towards physiotherapy and professional care, I would not have been able to get to starting line, let alone finish it!
