ABOUT ANNA PRINSLOO

Private practice owner and senior clinical physiotherapist

Anna Prinsloo has been an avid athlete and adventurer since her youth. She was introduced to athletics by her mother who was an Olympic qualifier for the United States Athletics team, and who held a world record. Anna has also been involved with equestrian sport, hockey, motocross, rock climbing, gymnastics and dancing at various stages of her life. These days you will find her hiking or doing yoga.

Anna Prinsloo graduated magna cum laude with distinction from the University of Cape Town in 2002. After completing her community service at Eben Donges Hospital in Worcester she began her physiotherapy career at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa. Since then she has continued to gain experience in the field of sport and orthopaedic manual physiotherapy in various Cape Town-based private practices. She was part of the team at the UCT Sports Injuries Centre for 4 years. During this time, she was fortunate to gain a tremendous amount of experience in foot and ankle physiotherapy while working alongside Helene Simpson. Anna completed the Sport Physiotherapy Course in 2015 and the Orthopaedic Manual Therapy Course in 2016. She was awarded the prize for top student in the Western Cape for both of these courses. She has previously served on the committee for the Western Cape Sports Physiotherapy Group and has assisted with under-graduate training of physiotherapists at the University of Cape Town. She is currently on the committee for the Advanced Neuromusculoskeletal course in the Western Cape, and is involved with the clinical mentorship and examination of physiotherapists at a post-graduate level.
