He then spent several years in private practice in the UK as an associate before starting his own practice in South West London. In 2006, he returned to the Durban University and joined the academic team of clinicians in a supervisory role to the final year students.
Dr Webb has spent the past 7 years in private practice in Cape Town and has particular interests in scoliosis, leg length discrepancies, nutritional supplementation, and rehabilitative exercise.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Problems
Pain/discomfort in the jaw joints and muscles, displaced disc/jaw dislocation or condyle fracture, and inflammatory disease of the TMJ. In addition to the pain in your jaw and near the ear, there could be difficulty or pain/clicking sound on chewing food and opening/closing your mouth.
From mild discomfort to severe chronic pain that could be disabling. This can affect the nerves, ligaments and blood flow to the head and shoulder region. Re-alignment of the vertebrae in the neck and shoulder region helps restore proper functioning of the vertebra, thus removing muscle spasm.
There are four major categories that include arthritis, fracture, instability, and tendon tear/inflammation. Injuries to the shoulder caused by trauma or overuse of the muscle, ligaments, and tendon also result in pain and tenderness.
A condition characterized by painful elbow caused by overuse, for instance, while playing tennis or other racquet sports. Overuse injury or repetitive motion activity causes inflammation of the forearm muscles and tendons. This leads to pain and tenderness on the outer side of the elbow, muscle weakness, and inability to perform even simple tasks.
A spinal deformity in which a sideways curvature develops in the spine. This condition can predispose to premature arthritis, back pain, and respiratory problems. Chiropractic care improves function and provides back pain relief but cannot correct the twisted curvature of the spine.
A condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and other symptoms such as fatigue, and problems with sleep, mood, and memory. Women, mostly between 25-50 years of age are more likely to develop fibromyalgia. In such conditions, all 18 trigger points become painful and tender.
Low Back Pain
In most cases, is associated with spondylosis, a term that refers to degeneration of the spine caused by normal wear and tear that happens in the joints and discs of the spine as people age. Other causes of low back pain include sprains and strains, herniated discs, sciatica, spinal stenosis, traumatic injury, and spondylolisthesis.
Disc Herniation / Slipped Disc
Sometimes the exterior of these rubbery disks can tear, and the soft inside slips out. This results in a herniated disk, also known as a slipped disk or ruptured disk. This disk injury can irritate nearby nerves causing pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or a leg.
Colic / Irritable Baby Syndrome
Colic is frequent, prolonged and intense crying or fussiness in a healthy infant. Colic can be particularly frustrating for parents because the baby’s distress occurs for no apparent reason and no amount of consoling seems to bring any relief.
This condition involves the inflammation or irritation of the thin tissue present at the bottom of the foot. The symptoms include pain in the heels while walking associated with swelling and numbness. Most commonly, a bone spur may cause irritation and muscle tightness resulting in this condition.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Caused by pressure on the median nerve. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand. When the median nerve is compressed, symptoms can include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and arm.
Chronic Pain Syndromes
Some of the more common syndromes are diabetic neuropathy, shingles and post herpetic neuralgia, painful scars (neuromas), phantom limb pain, trigeminal neuralgia (tic doloreaux) and pain associated with multiple sclerosis.
The Spine – Gateway to Good Health!
The nervous system is the communication pathway between the brain and the entire body. The spinal cord and spinal nerves are protected by the vertebrae. When these become misaligned or jammed together due to injuries or poor posture the communication between those nerves and their target is affected. Like standing on a hosepipe reduces the water reaching the garden, this nerve pressure has long term implications for health.
Initially experienced as back or neck pain due to the associated muscle spasm and joint injury, long-term effects include motor weakness, paraesethias and altered autonomic nervous system function.
A healthy spine is key to good health. Sedentary lifestyles and the poor posture that develops from them affects the natural spinal curves and reduces the ability of the spine to deal with the weight of the body. This results in other joints dealing with increased loads at unusual load angles and predisposes one to osteoarthritis.
Chiropractic is a neuromusculoskeletal speciality that uses specific spinal adjustments to correct these issues and has been proven to be the most effective as well as the most cost-effective treatment for mechanical lower back and neck pain. Together with regular physical exercise and good nutrition, a strong and healthy spine goes a long way in protecting your health.

What people are saying
Since meeting Grant about 2 years ago, he has always gone out of his way to help me, and always in a kind and supportive manner. On some occasions having to drive from Somerset West to Tokai to meet me.
Grant is cautious and thorough with his assessments, while his treatments have always been effective. To such an extent that I now hardly need his help! Thank you for helping to keep me aligned and pain-free, Grant!
We wish Grant Webb all success in his new practice in Somerset West. We were extremely sorry to see him move from Cape Town. He was always accommodating in an emergency, kind and efficient and we will miss him. We wish him all good luck in his new venture.
I’ve been a patient of Dr Webb’s for several years and am so pleased with, not only his diagnosis, but also the successful treatment of my neck and back issues. It is so good to walk into the practice in pain and leave pain-free after a manipulation.
