Hanette Lemke graduated with an Honours degree in Physiotherapy from the University of the Free State in 2002.
She spent a year in Bloemfontein Medi-Clinic treating various orthopedic, surgical and intensive care patients, but focused on treating chest conditions of children, toddlers and neonates. She married and moved to George where she joined a busy private practice gaining valuable skills in treating multiple different conditions. In 2006 she completed a post-graduate diploma in Orthopedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT 1).
In 2010 she joined a dynamic practice in Cape Town, focusing mostly on the treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of sports injuries and the general every day back and neck pain.
She completed a Masters Degree in Sports Physiotherapy in 2014, concentrating on runners and the recovery modalities they use. She has a special interest in running and cycling injuries and likes to work with these athletes to keep them on the go. She has a passion for sports injury prevention and feels that more can be done to educate sedentary workers and people who love their sport to avoid unnecessary injuries. She has done various other courses including Dry Needling and Pilates.
She first opened Hanette Lemke Physiotherapy in February 2015 in George. Saidi Scriven took over the George practice in May 2016 when Hanette and her family moved to Kimberley in the Northern Cape where she joined Margaret van den Heever Physiotherapists.
