Dr Marco Maruggi

    Chiropractic Practitioner

    • M.Tech Chiropractic (UJ)

    I qualified at the University of Johannesburg with an M-Tech in Chiropractic and have completed all three levels in Advanced Kinesio Taping. I did my partial thesis on treating Myofascial trigger points with Dry Needling and Kinesio Tape. I am a member of the Chiro Sport and South African Sports Medicine Association (SASMA).

    My main passion has always been sport and I have played at a provincial level. Over the past 10 years, I experienced many injuries due to sport and this led me to be treated by our very own Dr Wayne Borowsky – whom I learnt a lot from.

    As a result of this, my passion subsequently went from playing sport to treating sport related injuries, as well as the general well being of patients.

    I believe in looking at each patients injuries on a physical, mental and emotional level, and then finding and treating the source of the injury and getting the body back to its optimum state, therefore enhancing performance, life style and preventing further injuries. I enjoy explaining and educating patients about their injury as I believe that it is important to their overall recovery and maintenance.

    I have had the privilege of treating various top professional sportsmen and performers over the past 3 years.

    I am Italian by heritage and very passionate about what I enjoy. My other interests are wildlife and sports such as soccer, golf, cricket and rugby, which I still play whenever I get the chance.
