Stefan spent 5 years working at a very successful general practice clinic just outside of Brisbane, Australia. In 2014, he started working with World Spine Care, opening a clinic in the city of Moca, Dominican Republic in his first year. He managed the clinic until 2017 when he moved to Africa to coordinate the program in Botswana. As head of the spine unit within the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Princess Marina Hospital, Stefan also consulted patients alongside the hospital’s neurosurgeon and orthopedic surgeons. In 2018, with the joint effort of the other members of the profession, he established the Botswana Association of Chiropractors as the founding president. He has worked with professional and semi-professional soccer, football, Aussie rules football and rugby players, including being the team chiropractor for the Botswana National Seven’s team and the LKC Jaguars Rugby Club from 2017 to 2019. He has lots of experience working with triathletes, runners, swimmers and cyclists including being team chiropractor for the Biovail professional Women’s cycling team for 2006. He was part of the medical team for the 2018 African Union Sport Council Youth Games where he worked with athletes from all over southern Africa.
Stefan is a reformed triathlete and a has-been rugby and football player (outside centre/outside linebacker). He can drive a golf ball consistently 300 yards (150 straight line distance) and enjoys crashing mountain bikes, hitting moderate sized trees on his snowboard, and absolutely burning up the tatami doing BJJ.
