Chiropractic care optimizes the functioning of the nervous system, helping your body to move better, function better, heal better & feel better.
Chiropractic treatment has been shown to be incredibly safe & aims to change the way the brain responds to pain & dysfunction.
Dr Kate uses a technique that focuses on correcting nervous system irritation (or the primary vertebral subluxation complex) using whole body assessment & gentle impulse adjustments.
Dr Kate loves providing chiropractic care for kids & babies from ages newborn & up. She completed the Kiro Kids Clinical Paediatric Chiropractic Certificate as a post-graduate course. Children & babies struggling with pain & irritability, colic, irritable baby syndrome & musculoskeletal injury can benefit from chiropractic care.
Dr Kate especially enjoys supporting new moms & being part of the team that helps them navigate the journey of breastfeeding & ensuring a healthy latch for baby.
Pilates is a safe, controlled form of exercise that creates a stronger body from the inside out. This scientifically-based method of movement focuses on activation & strengthening of the deep abdominal muscles, while also improving posture, balance, joint mobility & muscle flexibility. This serves to support & protect the spine & contributes towards overall health & fitness.
Pilates is a great rehab tool for lower back pain & sports injuries. It also helps to undo the negative physical effects of prolonged sitting & sedentary lifestyles.
Although Chiropractors treat their patients holistically, addressing all areas of mental & physical health, the focus of care is on nervous system, muscular & joint conditions. This includes disorders such as neck pain, back pain, sports injuries, headaches, postural issues, dizziness & infant fussiness. Chiropractic care most importantly aims to prevent these ailments through regular care, encouraging patients to be proactive about their health.
Dr Kate particularly enjoys caring for pre- & post-natal women, providing them with support in what can be an incredibly tough time on the body & mind.
Hi, I'm Dr Kate Brown (or just Kate!).
I qualified in 2014 with a Master's Degree in Chiropractic from the Durban University of Technology. I was an associate for 4 years at New Generation Chiropractic in Hillcrest, where I studied the Neuro Impulse Protocol & completed my Certificate in Clinical Paediatric Chiropractic through Kiro Kids. I also qualified as a Mat Pilates Instructor in 2013 under Trifocus Pilates & opened my studio, Just Do Pilates. I've since also completed my BASI Mat Pilates training in 2020 & HCA Health Coaching Diploma in 2023.
I am a joyful & friendly person who believes in a balanced, minimal-stress type of life. Growing up as a ballet dancer taught me so much about the importance of body awareness, good posture, core strength & overall wellness. It is what inspired me to become a Chiropractor, Pilates Instructor & Health Coach. I am a firm believer in the power of movement & I love helping people build healthy, strong & flexible bodies for the future. I am also extremely passionate about real food, gut health & food medicine.
In my spare time I enjoy adventures with my husband & baby boy, as well as keeping fit with functional gym training, Park Run, Pilates & Pole Fitness. I'm an unashamed follower of Christ & serve on the worship team at St Agnes Church in Kloof.
Approach & Techniques
Chiropractors are primary healthcare practitioners & are highly trained diagnosticians. This means that your chiropractor will always take your full medical history & complete the appropriate physical examinations before moving on to the chiropractic assessment. When required, we will always refer you to the appropriate specialist or medical practitioner.
My practice offers holistic, evidence-based care that addresses the root cause of pain & disease rather than just treating symptoms. This often means addressing issues such as poor diet, lack of daily movement, prolonged unhealthy postures & excessive mental or emotional stress. I am passionate about helping individuals heal & become whole in every aspect of their life.
I use gentle techniques that optimize nervous system functioning by correcting subluxation (or nervous system irritation) in the body and relieving tension on the lining of the spinal cord (dural tension). My method of assessment & adjusting also involves correcting cranial dysfunction within the central nervous system (your brain!). You won't hear any ‘cracking’ or ‘clicking’ during your appointment, as I utilize gentle impulse adjustments that apply the same amount of pressure you’d put on your eyeball!
I also use soft tissue techniques such as dry needling and massage, as well as offer advice on physical activity, nutrition & workplace ergonomics. I regularly prescribe spinal mobility exercises & basic Pilates/ deep abdominal strengthening exercises as part of each patient's long-term healing plan.
