In 2006, David Gardener started Gardener Physiotherapy with his wife Anjo Gardener. David obtained his BSc Physiotherapy at the University of the Western Cape, graduating in 2005. Anjo obtained her BSc Physiotherapy at the University of the Western Cape, graduating in 2006. David worked in the Northern Cape for his community service year. On completion of his community service he started working at EersteRiver Hospital. It was here that he recognized a developing community and the need for privatized healthcare.
Thus in 2006 he started Gardener Physiotherapy at 10 Stanley Street, Melton Rose, EersteRiver. From 2007 till 2009, David and Anjo shared the client load. In 2009 he left EersteRiver Hospital and started planning the new branch.
In 2010 he branched out to KuilsRiver Hospital. This step allowed EersteRiver and KuilsRiver clients to have the same therapist from the acute phase of management to the Rehabilitative phase.
Due to the exponential growth of the EersteRiver and KuilsRiver communities, a new need was recognized, and further healthcare was needed to service them. The Gardener Physiotherapy Team grew to include additional Physiotherapists at the various locations. The KuilsRiver Centre was started in 2018, which now offers different exercise classes and a more rehabilitative approach.
