DR. Robin Maris
Dr Robin Maris qualified as a chiropractor from Wits Technicon (now UJ) in 2003 and has been in private practice in Melrose Arch since.
The Melrose Arch practice is located inside the Virgin Active Classic gym.
In 2011, Dr Maris was asked to join ear, nose and throat surgeon Dr Lance Maron in his Park Lane practice - The Voice and Swallowing Centre. This led to Dr Maris completing his Masters degree in Speech Pathology at the University of Witwatersrand (WITS) in 2018 and he now has a particular interest in treating patients with vocal issues alongside a multidisciplinary team consisting of an ear, nose and throat surgeon, audiologist and speech pathologist.
As the Park Lane practice is in the Voice and Swallowing Centre, most chiropractic cases treated there are head and neck related but Dr Maris also treats other chiropractic cases at this location such as back pain, sporting, work and stress related injuries, muscular strains and ligament sprains.
Dr Maris has developed a passion for dry needling which is taught in chiropractic colleges in South Africa. It is a modality that he readily employs in both his practices along with other chiropractic modalities such as deep tissue massage, transverse friction, ischaemic compression, ultrasound, extracorporeal shockwave therapy and strapping.
