It is possible you may never meet someone more enthusiastic about the outdoors, sports and exercise, healing and treatment, and the power of laughter than Candice. Everything Candice does is at 200% - with her skill equal to her passion.
Candice graduated with honours from UCT in 2002. After completing a year of community service in Namaqualand, she moved across the border to Namibia to work in private practice treating amateur and professional sports people. Here, she completed her postgraduate qualification in sports physiotherapy.
After Namibia, Candice travelled even further afield and gained valuable practical experience in London (UK) working in professional football, as well as at various private practices. Her main focus was sports physiotherapy and rehabilitation, as well as pilates. During this time, Candice gained invaluable experience working with and attending courses by leading international physiotherapists and sports medicine practitioners. This was a great opportunity for increased knowledge, acquiring new skills and making key connections that equipped Candice for her next move back to her beloved Mother City, Cape Town in 2011, where she started Candice Sumner Physiotherapy in March 2012.
Candice is driven by a passion for seeing people living an abundant life, one free from injury and pain. She enjoys helping people achieve their sporting goals and working with them to improve their performance. As a sufferer from chronic pain herself, following a spinal fracture, Candice knows how debilitating such pain and injuries can be; but she also believes that through the right treatment and exercise we should all be able to enjoy a high quality of life - 100% pain-free - where possible.
When not working, Candice will most likely be found climbing, hiking, jogging or attempting to surf. She also enjoys camping, travelling and being involved in community outreaches through her church.
