We are very pleased to accept people for second opinions about musculoskeletal as well as general practice type problems. We are more than happy to make the assessment and forward a report back to your usual doctor.
The combination of sports medicine and general practice places us well to be able to manage the many medical problems that also confront athletes such as asthma, tiredness, anaemia, iron deficiency, menstrual problems, pregnancy etc.
We can also provide assessments related to management of low back pain and other long term problems.
It is our belief that correct treatment requires an accurate diagnosis. The commencement of treatment to an injury without knowing the diagnosis goes against our ideals.
To enable the best form of treatment available, we utilise the services of a wide variety of like-minded health professionals with a special interest in sports medicine.
It is vitally important that you are actively involved in the decision making about your own care.
We certainly try to do nothing to people that would cause harm. Whilst some treatments will have inherent risks, there are other treatments where the risk is unacceptable.
