Dr Paul du Toit MBBS, BSc(Physio), Dip MT, PG Dip MSM, FAFRM is a Rehabilitation Medicine Physician.
He specilaises in general rehabilitation, pain management and musculoskeletal medicine including orthopaedics, neurological, cardiac, respiratory and rehabilitation of the deconditioned patient.
Dr du Toit completed a post graduate diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine at Otago University in New Zealand and became a Fellow of the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine (FAFRM) in 2018.
He has a particular interest in the management of non-surgical back and neck pain and the management of the dysfunctional sacro-iliac joint, and believes a thorough assessment is paramount and early management is the key to success.

Closely liaising with Eden Private Hospital’s day rehabilitation team, Dr du Toit uses a combination of manual therapy including manipulation, prolotherapy, trigger point and perineural injections to provide a holistic approach to treatment.
Dr du Toit oversees the rehabilitation program specifically for Parkinson’s Disease patients at Eden Private Hospital.
