What we stand for

Evidence Based

Chiropractic education is based on available evidence. We pride ourselves in always keeping up to date, and applying the evidence through our chiropractic treatment.

People Centered

At Lynnwood Chiropractic, we endeavour to create a caring environment for our patients. We understand that you may be pain, or uncertain of a solution, and we are here to assist you on your journey to live your best, pain-free life. Our focus is on you – the patient.

Interprofessional Collaboration

In some situations, your treatment plan may require input from other health care professionals. You will be guided as to the best possible care, which will result in the best outcome for your condition. You are the centre of our approach.

Lynnwood Chiropractic is proud to align with the principles of the World Federation of Chiropractic

Dr Kendrah Da Silva is currently serving her third term as the president of the Chiropractic Association of South Africa (CASA), the largest national chiropractic association on the African continent.

She was instrumental in the presentation to the Health Market Inquiry, to highlight barriers of entry to healthcare in SA. She is also in private practice in Midrand, South Africa.

Kendrah is a part-time lecturer on the chiropractic program at the university of Johannesburg, where she teaches clinical chiropractic to the fifth year students.
