The Sports and Pain Clinic was set up in 2011 by Dr Giresh Kanji, Musculoskeletal Pain Specialist and Researcher. He completed a PhD on chronic pain and the author of Fix Your Back and Fix Your Neck Pain & Migraine. He is currently writing Fix Your Insomnia, Anxiety & Depression for release in October 2017. He has incorporated his knowledge into the clinic. Consulting rooms have LCD screens on the wall to show patients their radiology and educate patients. We are the only clinic in Wellington to provide ultrasound guided injections performed by pain specialists and have the only Extra-Corporeal shock wave machine in Wellington to treat tendon pain. The clinicians at the clinic have been trained in pain physiology, how to read scans and X-rays for common conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headache and migraine. We work as a team to find and treat the source of your pain.

After two weeks and four treatments I understood what was wrong and my pain started to improve. Dr Kanji reviewed all my scans and even obtained results from Melbourne to ensure a thorough review. My pain was minimal after two weeks of treatment and I felt markedly less stressed knowing what I can do to keep myself well such as going to the gym and sauna. My sleep had also improved and made me feel a lot better. The clarity I had received about my condition was very important in allowing my recovery. Thank you Dr Kanji.
Saline injections were tried into the tender regions of my back and Dr Kanji explained how pain produces stress chemicals and how to reduce them. One month later the back pain had reduced significantly and I was sleeping better. In fact I had little pain and only required two sessions to get rid of my pain. My condition was covered by ACC so there was no cost to myself. It has been over two years with minimal back pain. I had a reaggravation of pain two years later and saw Dr Kanji once with my pain subsiding.
I would strongly recommend Dr Kanji’s service because after seeing him my back pain has gone. Other methods such as acupuncture and physio had not worked for me but Dr Kanji’s treatments did. And, they were covered by ACC!
