PROF. PHYLLIS BERGER
I'm a physiotherapist and acupuncturist. I qualified at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa in 1966 and as my experience grew in orthopaedics and neurology, I developed a special interest in the treatment of chronic pain. This has led me to participate in various international organisations that specialise in the study and research of pain management.
My own experience of treating many chronic and intractable pain patients made me realise that often medication and interventions, including surgery does not always solve the problems.
