Tracy Duke

Tracy DukeTracy qualified with a Bachelor of Physical Education (B.Phys Ed) degree from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1997, and after working in the States and the UK in both a teaching and physical therapy role, returned to Wits to complete her Honours in Biokinetics (B.HSc) in 2010.

As a biokineticist Tracy utilises exercise as the main therapeutic modality where her expertise encompasses orthopaedic rehabilitation, sports injuries and performance as her special interests; as well as chronic disease management and personal conditioning (prevent injuries rather than rehab them!)

Her focus with exercise rehabilitation with her patients is one-on-one interaction helping them to return to their prior level of functionality and to achieve their maximum potential. “It is rewarding to see people becoming healthier, pain-free and most importantly keeping them moving, improving their quality of life and achieving their goals”.

Tracy is an avid runner and cyclist, she has completed ten 2 Oceans half marathons where she gained her blue number status, and four 94.7 cycle challenges. She also enjoys being outdoors, hiking and mountain biking in her free time.
