RICCARDO VACCARO

SPORTS PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Having competed at an International Sporting level myself, I understand the demands and nature of athletes.

My vision was to create a “modern” Physiotherapy practice, but with the same ideals of Physiotherapy practices of yesteryear; quality and attention to patient care.

At our practice, we don’t treat body parts, and we don’t treat injuries…we treat INDIVIDUALS. Individuals who walk in as patients and leave as friends! - Riccardo.

Professional Experience

Riccardo is a Fully Accredited Sports Physiotherapist registered with the South African Sports Medicine Association (SASMA). He is also a member of the Sports Interest Group and Orthopaedic Manipulative Techniques Group (OMPTG) of The South African Society of Physiotherapy (SASP).
