Dr. Roberta Chow AM is located in our Castle Hill clinic. 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 focussed 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).
In addition to her clinical experience Dr. Chow is a published researcher, author and sought after speaker in her field. Her 2009 Lancet paper “Efficacy of low-level laser therapy in the management of neck pain” was in the top 20 downloaded papers from PubMed in 2010. She also sat on the Steering Committee of the National Pain Strategy 2010 – a federal government initiative to combat pain as an epidemic problem in Australia.
Dr. Chow co-authored and co-edited the book “Pain: The Person, The Science, The Clinical Interface” in 2015 and in 2017 she was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in the 2017 Australia Day honours for her work in pain management and laser therapy.
