Ramona has been working in the field of Musculoskeletal Medicine since 2002. She takes a whole-of-body approach, addressing ligament, fascia and joint issues and neuromuscular dysfunction, and solving chronic musculoskeletal pain problems by identifying and treating the underlying cause.

Ramona treats chronic pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction using a number of non-surgical treatment options, including prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), trigger point injections, perineural injection treatment, peripheral nerve hydro dissection, dry needling and manual therapies. Her whole-of-body approach also includes diet, nutrition, exercise and stress management. She has undergone further training in the use of ultrasound to aid diagnosis and guide injections.

Conditions treated include osteoarthritis (e.g. knee, hip, ankle), bursitis, tennis elbow, back pain, neck pain and stiffness, tendinopathies and tears (e.g. gluteal, Achilles, rotator cuff), sacro-iliac joint instability and many more.

Ramona trained in Adelaide with A/Prof Norm Broadhurst and Dr Margaret Taylor. In 2004, she completed the Graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine at Flinders University and prolotherapy training. Ramona regularly attends annual scientific meetings and conferences of the Australian Association of Musculoskeletal Medicine, New Zealand Association of Musculoskeletal Medicine and the SA branch of Sports Medicine Australia. She also attends local and international workshops and courses to keep up to date with the latest treatments and techniques.

“I feel that my skills complement those of the team at Wakefield Sports + Exercise Medicine Clinic. I offer many options for patients seeking relief from their musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction with the techniques that I use. I enjoy working in a multidisciplinary setting to help patients achieve their goals, whether that be to run a marathon, return to cricket, enjoy gardening, social golf or playing with their grandchildren. Pain can impact people’s lives in many ways and I find it incredibly rewarding to help relieve pain and assist patients in returning to the activities that they enjoy.”
