Wilgeheuwel : Physiotherapists
BSc Physio (Stell)
Suzanne grew up in Port Elizabeth amidst a sporty family. She enjoyed road running and swimming but spent most of her school years in the pool, where she obtained provincial colours. Inspired by her own physio and family friend, she decided at a young age that she wanted to be a sports physio.
After school she moved to the Western Cape to fulfil her dream and completed her BSc Physio degree at the University of Stellenbosch.
She was blessed to join the Bell, Rogers and Harris team in 2008 after completing her Community Service year in Joburg. Since then she has completed post grad courses in Sports (SPT) and Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (OMT) and is currently involved in assisting on these courses.
She has a special interest in peripheral joints, specifically the shoulder and hip, but finds working with adolescent athletes the most favourite and rewarding part of her job!
On a personal note, Suzanne loves being a Mom to her two “super cool” little guys and hopes to find time soon to indulge her creative side with her secret talent in acrylic painting!

BSc Physio (UWC)
Jaime grew up in Cape Town, where she completed her schooling and studies. Here she developed her passion for sport and physiotherapy from a young age, being surrounded by a sport orientated family and competing in various sports from an early age. After obtaining her physiotherapy degree at the University of the Western Cape in 2012, she did her community service year at Brooklyn Chest Hospital in Cape Town.
Looking for a change, she then packed up and left for Kimberley, in the Northern Cape, where she worked for three years. She gained experience in various fields of physiotherapy, serving at the biggest hospital in the province.
While doing so, she completed her Sport Physiotherapy Course (SPT1) in Johannesburg in 2016, and the big city won her over. Jaime began to work at Bell Rogers & Harris in 2017 to pursue her love for the treatment of sport injuries. She still enjoys running, Pilates and yoga in her spare time.
BSc Physio (WITS)
Caroline grew up in the small town of East London where she loved playing sport,especially hockey. She played provincial hockey at school and for WITS 1st team, where she studied Physiotherapy. She graduated from WITS in 2002 and did her community service at a clinic in Roodepoort.
Caroline then went to explore the world and spent 9 years working in the UK. She returned to sunny South Africa in 2012 as she missed the outdoor lifestyle as well as family and friends.
She has always had a strong interest in sports and rehabilitation and successfully completed the post-graduate physiotherapy course (SPT1) in 2016. She loves helping sportsmen and women to get back on track to achieving their goals. She also has a special interest in shoulder injuries and rehabilitation, back and neck pain, headaches and jaw dysfunction. Her other interest is in ergonomics and she has done numerous work place assessments to help people function optimally within their working environments.
Caroline has 3 young children so she understands the pressures that moms (and dads) experience in the job of juggling kids, work and spare time. When she can, Caroline enjoys yoga, mountain biking and golf.
She joined Bell, Rogers and Harris in 2016 and loves the multi-disciplinary approach the practice adopts as it’s a “one stop shop” taking the client from the acute stages of injury right up to return to sport or function at the end of the rehabilitation process.
