After graduation she practised in multidisciplinary practice in Johannesburg until March 2017. As a practitioner, she had a family practice with a focus on prevention and rehabilitation of injures.

Melanie’s primary interest was with sports performance, injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Melanie worked as a sports chiropractor on numerous local and international sporting events around South Africa, including the ‘Cape Epic’ in 2015 and the inaugural the ‘Arnold Classic Africa’ weightlifting championships in 2016.

Melanie treats both humans and animals and is a registered animal chiropractor with a postgraduate diploma form the International Academy for Veterinary Chiropractic. She is currently in the process of completing her own International Certification in Sports Chiropractic which is due to be completed in December 2021.

Melanie immigrated to England in 2017.  Along side her private practice she took up a lecturing position at the AECC University College in Bournemouth.
