BSc Physiotherapy (WITS) (with distinction)

OMT1 (with distinction)

CPT1 (with distinction)

Beverley has been working as a clinician in private practice for more than 17 years. She graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2003 with a BSc (Physio) Cum Laude and was also awarded the Raymond and Marjorie Dart Medal for the most Distinguished grandaunt in BSc (Physiotherapy). Following completion of community service in 2004 Beverley began her career as a private practitioner at Sklaar Laidler and Partners Physiotherapy, treating both hospital and rooms patients. Management involved treating patients both in the trauma and cardiac ICU’s of the Union hospital as well as holistic care of patients with severe trauma, respiratory, neurological and orthopaedic conditions.

Beverley later took on an associate position at the practice which involved managing hospital patients as well as the physiotherapy staff working in the hospitals.  In 2007 Beverley went on to complete the post graduate Orthopaedic manipulative therapy course (OMT 1) with distinction and has subsequently continued on as an assistant on the OMT course modules, supervising and training postgraduate students.

With a passion for ongoing learning and teaching, Beverley completed the post-graduate Cardiopulmonary course (CPT1) in 2009 with distinction and has also maintained an affiliation with the Wits Physiotherapy department as a clinical supervisor for their students. In 2010 Beverley began practicing as a solo practitioner in Bedfordview managing patients with various outpatient conditions including headaches, spinal pain, respiratory illnesses, sporting injuries and surgical and orthopaedic cases. In 2012 and 2014, Beverley became a “mommy” (a title she holds very close to her heart) welcoming an energetic little boy and beautiful little girl into the world. In 2015 Beverley joined Anne Williams at “Williams and Meyer Physiotherapy” (now Williams and Locke Physiotherapy) in Edenvale, where she still practices from.

With an ongoing passion for advancing her knowledge, Beverley completed her Master’s degree via a dissertation in 2020 in Cardiopulmonary Traumatology. On 9 July 2020, she graduated with the degree of “Master of Science in Physiotherapy” with distinction.  She was accepted to present her research findings at the World Physiotherapy Congress 2020 (Dubai), but due to COVID restrictions, this international congress became an online global event. At present her final publication entitled the “Effectiveness of Non-pharmacological Therapeutic Interventions on Pain and Physical Function in Adults with Rib Fractures during acute care: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis has been accepted for publication in the South African Journal of Physiotherapy, this being her second official publication. Beverley has a great love for her profession and holds herself to a high standard of management. She strives to provide her patients with holistic care, integrating treatment that addresses all aspects of the “injury” or “illness” including both the physical and mental aspects of healing. Her areas of special interest include treatment/management of:

  • Headaches, cervical pain
  • Autoimmune dysfunction and presenting symptoms
  • Chronic pain syndromes
  • Shoulder and upper quarter injuries
  • Cardiopulmonary and respiratory conditions
  • Orthopaedic conditions (specifically extensive fractures and joint replacements).

In-between work and being a very busy mom, Beverley enjoys running, reading and spending time with family.

Mikayla Rothmann

BSc Physiotherapy (SMU)

Mikayla earned her BSc in Physiotherapy from Sefako Makgatho Health Sciences University in 2021 and completed her Community Service year in a rural hospital in Mpumalanga. During this period, she gained extensive experience in treating Orthopaedic and Neurological conditions and actively contributed to the medical team at sporting events like netball Twizza and ASSA Athletics championships. 

Her professional interests include lower limb post-operative rehabilitation and sports injuries, along with neck and headache-related conditions. Driven by a commitment to personal growth and professional excellence, Mikayla prioritises delivering optimal care to every patient. In 2023, she completed courses in dry needling and strapping and is currently working towards her SPT certification. 

Mikayla’s captivation with the human body originated from her engagement in sports, inspiring her to pursue a career as a Physiotherapist. Initiating her dance journey at the age of 8, she achieved National federal colors at 12 and diversified her high school athleticism with swimming and cross country. Presently, Mikayla enjoys high-intensity squash, weight training, and actively participates in warrior races. 

Beyond her professional endeavors, Mikayla enjoys frequent hikes, reading and playing piano. Because of her own history of injuries, she has an understanding of the limiting aspects of pain and the frustrations that can go with it.
