Dr Kelly Samson, a former member of the Student Chiropractic Sports Council and former Chairman of the World Congress of Chiropractic Students UJ Chapter, has had the opportunity to collaborate with the chiropractic profession on an international level, learning about different treatments and protocols that are available.
Kelly graduated with her master’s degree in Chiropractic from the University of Johannesburg, South Africa. She is registered with the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa (AHPCSA), The Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF), Chirosport SA, Paediatric Chiropractic SA as well as the Chiropractic Association of South Africa (CASA). She is also a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society.
During her studies, Kelly took a special interest in the growing spine as well as scoliosis and continues to research as much as possible on the beneficial treatments for each patient at a specific time in their life. She currently co-ordinates the Spinal Curvature Rehabilitation at the practise she is working at.
Kelly loves treating patients of all ages, with a great passion for treating babies, families, athletes and structural spinal conditions. Her treatment is always patient specific. She uses a combination of chiropractic spinal manipulation, joint mobilisation techniques, dry needling, soft tissue therapies, basic personalised exercise rehabilitation therapy, IFC, strapping and ultrasound therapy.
Her skills have been used at many different sporting events in South Africa such as the exclusive African Icons Invitational, Joburg2C, The Battle CrossFit Games Competition, Rugby and Hockey festivals and the 947 Cycle Challenge.
Kelly Prides herself in making sure she is updated with the latest research and keeps track with what is happening in the world of chiropractic. She believes that this career is continually developing, and new treatments are being trailed and tested constantly therefore making it the duty and responsibility of a chiropractor to keep up to date with it all.
