Testimonials for Natalie Sidorkewicz

“I had seen just about everyone within a 50 km radius for my back injury with no results over the course of 8 months.

Testimonials for Jo Venter

My injury came on slowly and I was recommended core exercises while no one could tell me what it was. When walking started hurting and I could no longer do the sports I enjoyed, I had an MRI that showed a bulging disc. Things stayed in a bad state until I had an episode and […]

Testimonial for Daniele Barbieri

I met the ATLAS centre thanks to prof. McGill’s book “back mechanics” recommended me by a Physical Education teacher seven months ago. I immediately called Dr. Barbieri.

Testimonials for Lysander Jim

My wife and I both suffered lower back problems several years ago. We were treated symptomatically, but little real progress was made in understanding and treating the underlying cause of our problems.
