At DOC Medical Centre, the treatment of neurological diseases is one of our specialities. These are disease conditions that affect the nervous system, which consists of the brain and spinal cord.

A few of the neurological conditions we treat and manage at DOC Medical Centre include
Stroke: A condition where the blood supply to the brain is blocked due to damage to the blood vessels supplying the brain. This leads to critical body functions such as movement and speech.
Seizures and Disorders: This condition is typified by loss of consciousness, coordination, and violent movements that can lead to injuries. A typical example is epilepsy.
Neurological Disorders: These conditions, such as dementia, is a progressive deterioration of the brain caused by injury or diseases. It negatively affects memory and behavioural patterns.
Neuromuscular Disorders: The spines, nerves, and muscles are affected by this type of neurological disorder. For instance, myasthenia gravis causes weak skeletal muscles.
Headaches and Migraines: These are intense, disabling headaches that are often followed by other symptoms like depression, neck stiffness, hyperactivity, depression, fatigue, among others.

The human body is designed for movement; this freedom to move different body parts in various directions gives man massive potential to work and play. Losing or degrading this unique ability can be devastating. That is where physiotherapy sets it.
Physiotherapy is the healthcare profession that focuses on helping people maximize their physical potentials, including movement and other human functions.
Physiotherapy covers the entire scope of promoting physical movement potential and preventing, treatment rehabilitating programs for various movement-related challenges.
At DOC Medical Centre, we take a hands-on, drug-free, and open-minded approach to treating diseases and injuries that undermine physical movement. Our team of highly experienced physiotherapists apply techniques such as stretching, exercises, massage, heart and heat therapy to rehabilitate, reduce pain and maximize movement potentials.
In contrast to popular opinion, physiotherapy is not restricted to rehabilitating people recovering from injury or those having movement challenges. It is helpful for anyone that intends to maximize physical potentials such as enhancing joint mobility, increase strength and coordination, improve cardio-respiratory functions, and many more.
Physiotherapy is invaluable for pain management and promoting recovery in people suffering from disabling injuries and disease conditions.
Our physiotherapists work in conjunction with other medical professionals to provide treatment for the following:
The adult human body has 206 bones joined to one another to form the human skeletal frame. The place two bones meet in the body is called joint; they are surrounded by soft tissues and prone to injury and disease.
Joint manipulation therapy is a hands-on technique for reducing pain, releasing tension in the joints, and enhancing flexibility and free movement. The treatment calls the patient’s attention to the correct positioning and motion of the joint. This action simulates smooth joint function, and joint mobility eventually leads to improved mobility and range of motion.
Our experienced physical therapist moves the joint with small and passive motions and manipulates it to attain a natural resistant level. This action increases the elasticity, resilience, and strength of the tissues surrounding the joint and restores joint play.
This therapy effectively manages acute and chronic pain, relaxes the muscles, reduces muscle spasms, and increases the range of motion.
Several factors such as injuries, accidents, sports, and prolonged poor posture can cause pains in the back, spines and muscles. Such pains are often followed by additional complications such as headache, locked neck, and other complications. In most cases, a diagnostic scan reveals a distortion in the bones' alignments, especially in the spine. Chiropractic is a complementary medical procedure for diagnosing and treating such anomalies through physical adjustment of the mechanical disorder.
The spine's structural derangement can affect the proper functioning of the nervous system. Therefore, the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment goes way beyond alleviating pains and restoring the structural integrity in the areas affected. Such treatments remove spinal nerve irritations and improve degraded reflexes.
At DOC Medical Centre, we provide a wide array of chiropractic treatment regimen after diagnosing your condition. Such treatment can range from a single session with our chiropractor or a treatment schedule lasting for several weeks to achieve the best results. The Chiropractic treatment is drug-free, our chiropractor provides treatment based on diagnostic scan and sometimes work with orthopedic doctors to provide precision. The procedure involves physically adjusting the bones, spine, or other affected body parts to restore natural alignments. Many patients experience instant relief after a chiropractic session. The procedure is safe, effective in relieving pains and correcting the structural functions of affected body parts.
Dr Claire de Lange is the in-house Chiropractor at DOC Medical Centre. She works closely with Doctors in the Orthopedic and Neurology department to provide treatment for patient's unique health challenge.

The dental crown procedure aims to correct dental anomalies such as shape and size restoration, strengthen a tooth, or improve a smile. The crown is a solid, tooth-like structure that resembles the visible parts of a tooth. The dental crown procedure entails covering the entire visible portion of the tooth with the crown. The crown can also support fragile teeth, hold dental bridges in place, or cover dental implants/large cavities.
Our experienced dentists match the colour of the crown with existing teeth to enhance aesthetics. They also coat and craft the crown to make it look all-natural. After the dental crown procedure, the patient can eat food and take drinks without risking damages to the brown or teeth.
Many patients lose teeth as they age. Lost teeth can actually change the way your mouth looks and functions, affecting the way you speak. Bridges are designed to maintain the shape and function of your mouth.
Bridges are used to, quite literally, bridge the gap. A dental bridge is a pontic, or false tooth. They are made from a variety of materials including porcelain, alloys or gold. They are fixed right into your jaw or under your gums and are permanent. Typically, porcelain is used to blend with your existing natural teeth.
There are several types of dental bridges in use and the kind you will require depends on your exact needs, each bridge has a particular use and requires specific conditions for use. Your Dentist will discuss your options with you after a thorough examination with x-rays and support you to make the right choice for your treatment plan.
