Hey, I'm Garric
I've been consulting with physiotherapy patients since 1994 after graduating from the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa. I have successfully owned and run 2 private practices since 1995. Had the privilege of working with Olympic athletes since the 2000 Olympics. Consulted with the national rugby team players, provincial hockey and soccer teams, and looked after numerous professional athletes from a variety of sports. I have completed over 80 000 consultations and currently look after clients on 5 continents. But it has not always been the same. In fact, for several years I felt the medical industry wasn't progressing. Even though I was lecturing at a post graduate level from 1996 on various physiotherapy subjects, I could see the short comings. After working with patients with sports and orthopedic conditions I began to realise that there was an element missing.
