Dirk is a well respected Musculoskeletal Specialist Physiotherapist who qualified at the University of Pretoria, in South Africa and has been treating patients for the past 14 years. He arrived in the UK in 2001 and is specialised in the treatment of backs, necks and sport injuries. Dirk is passionate about seeing people healed and set free from the vicious cycle of pain.
Dirk was the owner of The Back Clinic on Harley Street for over 10 years which has now been re-branded as Rejuv Physio and Nutrition. Dirk has treated various celebrities including Lily Allen, Sinitta and Helen Mirren, West End musical actors, professional ballet dancers and singers. Elite athletes such as Michael Clarke, the Australian cricket captain, premiership football players and England’s rugby team players are also among the distinguished clientele.
Dirk has a very practical and functional approach to pain and injury and focuses on treating the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms bringing about permanent results.

Being a past elite athlete himself, Dirk understands the workings of the body supported by his skills of manual therapy and rehabilitation.
