Tarrin van Niekerk Running Coach | Trailphysio

Tarrin graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2007. She completed her certificate in Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) in 2010 and her Diploma in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (Dip MDT) in 2019. She has been working in private practice since 2009, focusing on orthopaedic, sports and chronic pain conditions.

A passionate advocate for physical activity, she enjoys helping people become healthier and happier through movement. She offers a thorough assessment and treatment plan to get to the root of why the patient is hurting, how to relieve it, how to recover their normal function and prevent future episodes. She encourages patients to become active participants in their rehabilitation so they can return to normal activities and sport a lot sooner.

When she’s not working, you’ll find her out running on the trails. Tarrin is a competitive ultra trail runner and has raced and adventured across South Africa and abroad. She is also a running coach and owns TrailPhysio Coaching, where she works with road and trail runners of all levels.

She also writes an informative blog about her own experience with running injuries and training.
