“I suffered from a crushed L1 vertebra during a motor vehicle collision in 2010. I was admitted to hospital and underwent spinal fusion surgery. For years afterwards, I was hesitant to go back to the gym or get regular exercise for fear of hurting myself as I suffered from daily back pain. I was unable to bend over to pick things up off the floor or carry anything over 3kgs. This inhibited my ability to do simple things like carrying grocery bags, cleaning my house, or carrying files in the office. I relied on others to help me because I had lost my physical independence. Losing these abilities I once had was very depressing.
I was referred to Dhansay and Roberts Biokineticists in 2017 when I had a health check planned jointly by my work and Discovery. John Roberts took me on as his client twice a week and worked with me slowly and carefully to improve my level of mobility and core strength with a tailored routine, which he has been regularly reviewing and adjusting based on my specific needs. He has been kind and empathetic and is an amazing listener. I have been a client of his for the last 4 years and as I look back, I am amazed at how strong I have become. I can function almost normally and am constantly working on maintaining and increasing my strength and mobility. I can lift and carry up to 12kgs now, I can bend over and pick up things (even heavy things) from the floor. My level of fitness has improved. I am regaining my physical independence and I can get the physical exercise I need. I can honestly say I am not sure how I ever coped without my sessions with John. I would recommend them to anyone who is recovering from a physical injury."

“I initially saw John at Dhansay Roberts in 2018 in an attempt to avoid achilles tendon surgery. Now, two years later, I am able to run at pace and distance without having had surgery on the achilles. He has subsequently rehabilitated my knee post-surgery and my shoulder post an AC 3 separation. John is very alive to the requirement of training whilst in rehab and in particular, he has built a program that has me fit and strong across different sports. The work on my shoulders has made me faster and stronger whilst swimming. On top of this he is a really nice guy to work with."
~ Garth Greubel, Cape Town
“Extremely satisfied with the service!
Was able to avoid a second surgery and regained full function after dealing with chronic pain in my left knee for over 6 years.
Professional, knowledgeable and friendliness combined with a clearly structured rehabilitation program!
Thanks to John I can run, surf and rock climb without the constant fear of pain."
~ Dr Chris Coetzee, Cape Town
“I sustained a shoulder and neck injury as a result of a motor vehicle collision. During 2020 I was referred to a Biokineticist. After my very 1st session I was given several exercises at home to improve assist with my recovery. This was brilliant and after the 3rd session I had much better use and mobility in both arms. John is extremely professional and my encounters with him were very pleasant and enjoyable. The facilities are easily accessible and very secure. I am still continuing with the exercises I was shown and with some prescribed meds from my Dr I now have the full use of both arms. Thank you so much.
I am also a road runner and during training I sustained an injury to my groin. I attended 6 sessions with John again and now I am back on the road injury free and able to move with no discomfort at all. The “homework" / exercises he gave me to do at home is of such a nature that I could incorporate it into my daily routine when stretching and warming up. I am extremely happy with the services rendered to me and would happily refer anyone to them."

Being put into the hands of John is without a doubt a life-changing experience for me. After having a complete ACL, MCL and meniscus repair and struggling with my recovery, John stepped in and has managed me in the process to get to 100%. For the first time in 3 years I have no pain and I am able to train and perform at an even better level than before.

Fayaadh, also an HPCSA registered Biokineticist and co-founder of Dhansay & Roberts Biokineticists, has over 10 years of experience helping people rehabilitate their injuries.
Here's what Fayaadh's patients have to say. You can also read more about Fayaadh's expertise here.
“Fayaadh is simply incredible. I was referred to him after struggling with severe hamstring tendonitis and a few other niggles and had tried a number of other therapies and fixes to no avail. Within 4 months my pain had all but disappeared. His approach was brilliant, filled with insight into the injury and different rehab methods and techniques. With only two sessions a week I saw marked improvement in only a few weeks and substantial gains as we moved through the different phases. Thank you Fayaadh!"
~ Ed van Niekerk, Cape Town
“I first approached Fayaadh to help me overcome a running injury in 2014. When I went for my assessment, I am sure he was in awe that I could even run as I had no balance (I had a stroke in 2012), non-existent glutes and no core strength, amongst many other problems.
I now have glutes and core strength, my hips work in unison and I can balance single-legged on a ball. I can hop on and off pavements without killing myself and my running and overall posture have improved immeasurably.
My hour spent with him weekly ensures that I maintain what he has taught me and is more a workout than what I would ever do in a gym. Yes, after all these years, I still go to him weekly! I highly recommend that if you have an injury, try a biokineticist and Fayaadh is a definite go-to."
~ Jackie Barry-Henrick, Cape Town
“Dhansay & Roberts Biokineticists changed the way I view my body. They helped me understand the importance of good form through rehabilitation and activation. I’m a much better runner improving with every run and I’m confident that, with what I know now, I’ll remain injury free. Thanks for giving me my power back."
~ Oscar Petersen, Cape Town
“I’ve been working with Fayaadh Dhansay from Dhansay & Roberts Biokineticists for four years. The combination of tailor-made workout routines has been great for keeping me healthy and improving my body to new levels of performance. Having had three knee operations means I need very specific training and Dhansay & Roberts Biokineticists has been crucial in my recent success on the ATP tour."
~ Raven Klaasen
“Fayaadh and Dhansay & Roberts Biokineticists truly are a saving grace, through their conditioning, I am always ready to give it my all be it in training or racing. Even when travelling abroad and racing, Fayaadh will go the extra mile to provide insight and advice so as to help me recover properly and perform at my best. If you truly want to understand how to get the best recovery and performance from your body, Dhansay & Roberts Biokineticists has the answer."
