Dr Michelle Cox-Kleyn

 

Dr Michelle grew up in Delmas, a small farming community close to the East Rand. Dr Michelle matriculated in 2013 at Hoërskool Delmas and thereafter went on to study Chiropractic at the University of Johannesburg. Dr Michelle has always been passionate about medicine, but it was only in Grade 11 when she visited a chiropractor herself that she realised this is what she wants to dedicate her life to. “Often a patient crawls into the chiropractic office with debilitating pain, only to walk out an hour later. We make a tangible difference in every patient’s life and that’s what I wanted to do”.

 

Dr Michelle graduated from UJ with a master’s degree in Chiropractic in 2019 and did her master’s dissertation on the effects of Chiropractic care on lung function in emergency medical care students.

 

As an only-child, Dr Michelle has a close bond with her family and enjoy spending time with them on their family farm just outside Delmas. Dr Michelle is married to Cobus Cox, a paramedic and sport shooting enthusiast. Dr Michelle and Cobus are the proud parents of a beautiful Scottish Terrier, Lexi. 

 

Dr Michelle believes everyone can benefit from Chiropractic care and treats athletes, manual laborers, office workers, kiddies and the elderly.
