At the Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Clinic we offer a wide range of general medical and rheumatology services. We also treat chronic soft tissue injuries, and joint dislocations in all patients who have chronic injuries. I have sub-specialised in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, including the pain/injury related processes with it, and use prolotherapy in these patients with very good results. https://bmjopensem.bmj.com/content/5/1/e000481 As New Zealand doesn’t have any other EDS specialists yet, I look to, and rely on, our international EDS team for guidance when patients have complex issues.

At the moment I am only able to offer advice and guidance to GPs or other doctors or health care professionals with EDS or potential EDS patients. An actual clinic may be possible in the 2nd half of 2019. I am able to offer imaging guided sclerosant prolotherapy. In the public hospital service this must be a specialist referral and the patient in the Bay of Plenty District Health Board catchment area. Broader options for privately funded patients in private practice.

We have a multi-disciplinary practice in Mangawhai, north of Auckland, in New Zealand. Our clinic includes three osteopaths, a massage therapist and corrective movement therapist, occupational therapist and lactation consultant.

I, as the clinic owner, have had a special interest in HSD/EDS since 2007 when living in England and contributing to the HMSA (Hypermobility Syndromes Association) and help run a Zebra support group in the north of New Zealand.

We also work closely with Dr. Fraser Burling, Rheumatologist in Auckland, who works with prolotherapy to help many patients with HSD and EDS.

This is hugely important to me as a practitioner due to the number of patients I still see who’ve been searching on the circuit of health professionals and are expressing the lack of understanding about this and many other connective tissue disorders. This drives me as a health care practitioner, specifically, as an osteopath providing care to our patients in New Zealand.
