Schroder and Macquet Physiotherapy is a practice passionate about helping people on the journey to wellness. More people are taking to physio to assist in the healing of musculoskeletal injuries and to improve their physical wellness and strength, and more surgeons rely on physios to assist their patients and, ultimately, negate the need for surgery.

Their physios have special interests in musculoskeletal and sports injuries, respiratory therapy and orthopaedic rehabilitation in and out of the hospital.

Treatment works to relieve pain and stiffness and build strength and mobility, aiming to facilitate better function and wellness. Their goal is to help you return to doing what you love!

Kijk Optometrists is a small practice in the heart of Salt Rock, celebrating five years of business this year. Kijk patients range from young children through to the middle-aged and, of course, the lovely old grannies!

Owner Rene van den Heever loves the optometry industry not only because vision and eye health are so important, but because the frame selection is also part of her passion.

“You need to see well and feel great in your glasses.” Rene also has a special interest in sports glasses for fishing, cycling and golf or the alternative option of contact lenses.
