Dr Candice Dugmore is the creator and owner of Life Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.

She is very driven and passionate about Chiropractic and life in general, and strives to improve her patients lives on a daily basis. She has a very gentle approach which has been instrumental in building her a very busy practice, from families, the elderly, athletes, children and babies.

Dr Candice has become well known as the Baby Chiropractor of Port Elizabeth.

"Chiropractic is for anyone who has a spine!" Although many visit her for symptomatic relief, she spends a lot of time educating her patients on the importance of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Dr Neville Dugmore trained in the USA(Palmer College) and graduated in 1977.

After practicing there for 1year he returned to South Africa and set up practice in PE and has run a busy practice here since that time (36 years). Emphasis has always been on healthy lifestyle and good spine alignment to promote a healthy productive problem-free life. Expertise has also evolved to work on animal spines, especially horses and dogs, as there is a great need in this area as well as human Chiropractic.

Often referred to as the 'horse-whisperer' Dr Neville has become very well known for his abilities as a Horse-Chiropractor.

Dr Henri Myburgh qualified with a Masters Degree in Chiropractic from the Durban University of Technology. In addition he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Sport Science at the University of Stellenbosch in 2009. He further successfully completed the additional necessary modules of the BSc Sport Science degree to be competent to practice as a Personal Fitness Instructor.

He is very driven and passionate about sport and chiropractic. Being a competitive sportsman himself that represented his province in athletics and the Stellenbosch University (MATIES) 1st rugby team, he is well aware of the benefits of an active lifestyle and also the toll that it takes on the body. According to him chiropractic will not only optimize your potential in sports but in all facets of life. His emphasis is based on a healthy, active lifestyle and optimal functional spinal health. “The Chiropractic profession is unique in the sense that it is focused on treating the CAUSE of the complaint/injury/illness and not just the symptoms”. According to him Chiropractic is therefore considered “health-care” and not “sick care”.

His approach involves: making an accurate diagnosis by taking a full medical case history, physical and regional examinations followed by the incorporation of evidence-based treatment protocols. Treatment includes: Spinal and extremity manipulative therapy, soft tissue/trigger point therapy (Dry needling, active release therapy, impulse adjusting, kinesiotaping and strapping), patient education and referrals.
