About Sports and Pain Clinic

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.
