IMF Medical Center Practitioners

Dr Thorn Vivier

Chiropractor - MTech: Chiropractic (DUT)

I am the Chiropractor at IMF High Performance Centre. So I'm the guy you come to for things like low back pain, neck pain, headaches, sports injuries, joint dysfunction or even just tight muscles.

I’ve been passionate about the “engineering” of the human body from a young age, this passion coupled with a desire to improve my own function and overall health without resorting to drugs led me to Chiropractic.

I completed my Masters in Technology at the Durban University of Technology. My main area of interest is athletes, that includes you gym bunnies.

I have experience treating all kinds of athletes from surfers to crossfitters, from rugby players to swimmers. However I am passionate about seeing anybody become the healthiest version of themselves possible.

I strongly believe that Chiro is a powerful non-drug, non-invasive tool for achieving that goal. Whether it be through reduced pain, improved posture, restored biomechanics, balanced alignment, organic nutrition or simply better sleep. I believe in a holistic approach to health, wellness and performance and treat each patient as an individual with individual needs.

I look forward to meeting you and promise to help you along the path toward health and wellness in whatever way I can to the best of my abilities.

Serisha Neerachand

Qualified Podiatrist

Serisha Neerachand is a qualified podiatrist since graduating from the University of Johannesburg in 2007. Having practiced in Johannesburg for the past ten years, she is now expanding her practice to  KwaZulu Natal.

The reason behind her move is the opportunity to serve a larger community in KwaZulu Natal, where there is a lack of podiatry services.

But why do you need to see a podiatrist, some may ask? Well, a podiatrist is an Allied Healthcare professional registered with the health professions council of South Africa. Podiatrists are trained to diagnose, prevent and rehabiliate by medical and surgical means conditions of the foot and lower limbs.

Serisha specialises in treating patients with diabetes, children, biomechanics as well as patients who require specific footwear and socks.

Using her state of the art computerised Gait Analysis System, Serisha identifies and corrects gait problems thus ensuring proper offloading in diabetic patients and relief from painful heels and spurs.

Stacy Whitehead

Sports Massage Therapist - Nutritionist

Massage is the manipulating of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process and promote relaxation and well-being. 

I am a Sports Massage Therapist and Nutritionist and live my life with a passion for sport. I qualified with a BSportSci(Hons) Nutrition degree from the University of Pretoria in 2007 whilst training with the Olympic squad for sprint canoeing. I also represented KZN in Water-polo, Surf Lifesaving, Surf Skiing and swimming.

I own the supplement and clothing store at IMF and have a particular interest in providing accurate nutritional information and guidance for each and every supplement sale. 

I advise a number of professional athletes such as David Rajuili and Amanda Lino on their nutrition.

As a massage therapist I have a particular interest in helping fitness and health fanatics recover and aid in the rehabilitation of both athletes and stroke victims etc.

He then went on to complete his Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine (with his research focusing on hamstring muscle injuries in soccer players) from the University of South Wales (UK) in 2015 making him the only Biokineticist in the country with this specific qualification.

After spending 2 years in private practice, Nic decided to branch out on his own and is now the head Biokineticist working in partnership with Dwain Swiegers at IMF High Performance Centre in Ballito. As well as Biokinetics and personal training, Nic also works for the University of South Wales as an online tutor and continues to learn more everyday.

Having focused and specialised in this field, Nic is passionate about rehabilitation of sports injuries and sports specific high performance training. He also takes care of orthopaedic rehabilitation for joint conditions and injuries as well as chronic disease / high risk management providing his services to the IMF gym members, Alberlito Hospital in-patients as well as the general public in Ballito.

Born in Italy, Nic is the typical Italian cliché when it comes to playing soccer and is the current 1 st team Captain at Juventus FC Durban North.
