Experiencing the Effects of Chiropractic

Dr Kumaran Pillay played alot of sport throughout primary, high school and university in Durban, South Africa. His main sport was of interest was football, but also played cricket, volleyball, tennis and in university picked up golf. He sustained chronic ankle sprains during football, that often put him out for weeks at a time. After having various therapies, that proved unsuccessful regarding his chronic ankle sprains, he was recommended to see a Chiropractor, at the Chiropractic Day Clinic, Durban University of Technology.

After a series of Chiropractic sessions, not only did the ankle sprains improve tremendously, but he was able to return to football sooner than expected. This inspired him to pursue a career in Chiropractic and specialise in Sports Chiropractic.
