Relief for Back Pain Sufferers in Cape Town


Pretoria, South Africa, July 07, 2012 –(– Chronic back pain sufferers in the Cape Town area will at last find relief at the practice of Dr Lienka Botha and Partners. Millennium Business Park, Century City is the location of the new centre that offers a proven, exercise-based approach to treat this debilitating condition. The centre is conveniently and centrally located, offering ease of access from all surrounding areas.

The practice of Dr Lienka Botha and Partners forms part of a network of medical centres that applies the Documentation Based Care (DBC) Active Treatment System. The DBC Active Treatment System originates from Finland and has been researched and developed over the past twenty years. Dr Lienka Botha and Partners is the first practice in the Western Cape that offers this unique approach.

This treatment system relieves backache in an active way in that an exercise-based approach with individualised treatment programs is used. Specifically designed equipment facilitates the rehabilitation process.

Back treatment is provided by an interdisciplinary team of medical professionals consisting of a General Practitioner, Physiotherapist and Biokineticist. Each member is actively involved in every patient’s rehabilitation program. The team is professionally qualified and registered.

The treatment extends to chronic neck, shoulder, knee and hip pain as well as sports injuries and post-operative rehabilitation.

To coincide with the opening of the practice, Dr Lienka Botha and Partners has launched a comprehensive website for the centre. Centre location, hours, staff information and a complete list of services offered, are available on the site.

Dr Lienka Botha and her team will be representing DBC at the Look & Feel Good Expo at the Cape Town International Convention Centre from 5 October to 7 October 2012. Look out for them at stand number 40.

“I found the professional approach to the medical assessment and exercise regime, coupled with the highly sophisticated equipment and hands on sessions with the Biokineticist to be invaluable, and have no hesitation in recommending Dr Lienka Botha & Partners,” says Mr J van Huyssteen, a recent patient at the Dr Lienka Botha and Partners centre in Century City.

The company behind growing South Africa’s network of active spine care centres is DBC South Africa. DBC South Africa provides the DBC designed equipment and a management service to the medical centres. Currently DBC South Africa administers seven medical centres, including the recently established Dr Lienka Botha and Partners. DBC South Africa was given the rights by DBC International in Finland to operate the DBC technology in South Africa. E-mail DBC South Africa at
