Ramona has been working in the field of Musculoskeletal Medicine since 2002. She treats chronic pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction using a number of modalities including prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma (PRP), trigger point injections, perineural injection treatment, dry needling and manual therapies. These are non-surgical treatment options that aim to treat the cause of your symptoms to help manage your pain and improve your function, returning you to the activities that you enjoy. She has also undergone additional training in ultrasound imaging to assist diagnosis and injection guidance. Conditions treated include osteoarthritis (e.g. knee, hip, ankle), bursitis, tennis elbow, back pain, neck pain, tendinopathies, lateral hip pain and many more.
Ramona trained in Adelaide with A/Prof Norm Broadhurst and Dr Margaret Taylor. In 2004, she completed prolotherapy training as well as the Graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine at Flinders University. 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. After working collaboratively with Smart Health since 2007, Ramona officially joined the team in 2018.
