Dr. Sanvir Maharaj

The warm, kind and forever smiling Dr Sanvir hails from sunny Durban, South Africa. His introduction into spinal care started quite early as he suffered from neck and back pain from the tender age of 6.
His mum thankfully discovered the amazing power of chiropractic and never looked back. His family found the care safe, gentle and effective when dealing with their health issues.

His personal experience with pain and spinal issues found him searching for answers in :
Pharmacy (1st-year Pharmacy, Rhodes University, South Africa) then Chemistry and Biochemistry (1st, 2nd and 3rd year, University of Durban-Westville).
Eventually Chiropractic school seemed like the obvious winner. An intense 6 years at the Durban University of Technology helped Sanvir obtain a Master's Degree in Chiropractic focussed on :

  • Pain relief (all joints in the body + muscular pain + nerve pain)
  • Posture and Spinal correction
  • Sports injuries
  • Pediatric + infant care
  • Pregnancy care
  • Rehabiltitation

His 5th year of chiropractic school especially helped mould him as a health professional as he was involved in a serious car accident which left him with a shattered right arm and extensive nerve damage. Steel plates were used to piece the bones togethor but sadly the nerve damage left the arm with barely any function and extremely weak.

With the support of family and friends, he started to devise his own rehabiliation and stengthening program involving chiropractic adjustments, exercises, stretches and visualization/meditation.
After a gruelling 8 months he started to regain function and strength which gave him a second chance. The experience gave him the expertise and confidence in family practice when he moved over to the UK 9 years ago. Over the last decade he has worked with the largest providers of chiropractic care in Europe which gave him the platform to help thousands of families and athletes from more than 4 continents and over 20 countries.

His passion, focus and commitment to helping people regain optimal health and vitiality is unrivalled.

P.S. He does has a quirky sense of humour.
