This episode is a really fascinating interview about chronic pain and its management. Whether it is back pain, neck pain, an injury or even a tooth ache, we have all been in pain at one stage in our lives. Yet, pain is such an individualised experience and sometimes the stimulus doesn’t match the level of pain. So, to delve into one of the most complex areas of health, I thought who better to interview than Dr Roberta Chow. Dr chow really is a wealth of knowledge. She is a world leading clinical practitioner and PhD in the field of laser therapy for pain management. Originally, a general practitioner in private practice, Dr. Chow is focused solely on pain management and has used laser therapy to treat patients since 1988. This led her to undertake a PhD in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Sydney, studying laser therapy (LLLT) in neck pain although she treats a wide variety of musculoskeletal pain issues. Her further studies have included a Master of Applied Science and Grad Dip Pain Management (Sydney Uni).
