Boudine became a qualified physiotherapist in 2003 and completed her community service at Baragwanath Hospital in 2004. She spent the next 2 years working in London in various areas of Physiotherapy, in her own words:
"My true passion has always been in sport. My enthusiasm for golf started 3 years ago when I was the Physiotherapist at The Country Club Johannesburg, Woodmead. The bug bit and hasn't left me since! I am currently undertaking a Masters of Science in Sports Physiotherapy by course work and Research Report to increase my knowledge and expertise, but am still planning to spend as much time on the golf course as I can! I am proud to be a part of this new and very exciting venture that has been envisioned because of our ever growing passion for golf. We are a team of dedicated sports medicine professionals who are focussed on improving the wellness of golfers and assisting the golfer in his/her quest for health, fitness and golf improvement."
Golf physiotherapy is growing rapidly, as many golfers seek screening, assessment and treatment to optimise their body functioning, in turn their golf swing and game as a whole. The mechanics of the golf swing is fascinating and very complex. Physiotherapy will provide golfers with the most up to date and effective injury prevention, injury management and performance enhancement programs.
At the Golfers' Wellness Centre at The World of Golf, we cater for golfers from a wide variety of backgrounds including social golfers to juniors, competitive amateurs, seniors, and male and female touring professionals. We are also open to treating members of the general public for any of their injury or health concerns. If you have any sporting injuries, spinal or musculo-skeletal injuries, headaches, or are post operative, please do not hesitate to contact Boudine at email@example.com.

Understanding Biokinetics: A Biokineticist is a registered medical professional that uses physical exercise to treat chronic disease and injury. A Biokineticist has to register with the Health Professionals Council, and is a full medical professional, along with physiotherapists, chiropractors and dieticians. A Biokineticist thus charges medical aid rates, and patients may claim back their sessions from their medical aids, provided they have the facility to.
