Diarmuid has 5 years experience as a Physiotherapist. Undertaking his Physio degree in Ireland and following graduation, he has worked in a variety of healthcare settings including hospitals, ergonomic occupational settings and Orthopaedic/musculoskeletal outpatient departments.  Diarmuid has always had a real passion for rehabilitation of injuries and taking a client through the process from initial diagnosis, through ongoing management/treatment and ultimately to empower his patients to have the tools and education to self-manage when possible.





Tamara and her husband, both South African Chiropractors have recently moved to the Sunshine State after spending 13 years living in Kuala Lumpur.  

Tamara has a master's in chiropractic, a PhD in Radiology and over 18 years of international clinical experience. As well as treating the spine, she has a special interest in upper and lower limb conditions that commonly affect the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot. 

She enjoys using Diagnostic Ultrasound as an imaging modality to assess her patients and also has a wealth of experience in utilising Shockwave Therapy, Spinal Decompression Traction (for slipped discs), Corrective Knee Bracing (for Knee Osteoarthritis), Foot Orthotics and Rehabilitative Exercise. 

Dr Tamara made a move to full-time Academics in 2015 to the International Medical University (IMU), where she held positions as both Head of Department and Programme Director and completed her PhD in Radiology in 2017 at  UPM, one of Malaysia's top ranked research universities.

During this time, she also held multiple term appointments with the Malaysian Government, as Subject Matter Expert and Joint Technical Committee member under the Ministry of Health Malaysia, as a recognised authority in the field of Chiropractic and co-authored and published Chiropractic research papers of her own.

Tammy's real passion, however, has always been as a patient-facing clinician, hence her decision to return to full time clinical practice here in Australia. She believes that a multi-modal approach to patient care results in better long-term outcomes. 

When not treating patients, Tamara enjoys spending time at Brisbane's local farmer's markets and with her three cats.

It is clinically proven that these pressure waves, when applied to injured tissues, stimulate the following metabolic reactions:

  • Reduction of pain felt by nerve fibers
  • Increase of blood circulation in surrounding soft tissues
  • Beginning of healing process triggered by stem cell activation

This helps in speeding up the recovery process and in better clinical outcomes when combined with a specifically designed rehabilitation program



DolorClast® Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) uses acoustic pulses to treat certain musculoskeletal disorders. It is a well-studied and commonly used treatment modality for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Radial Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (RESWT) is used successfully for:

  • Calcific Tendontitis
  • Subacromial Pain Syndrome
  • Golfer's elbow
  • Tennis elbow
  • Trigger Points
  • Upper back pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Pseudoradicular lower back pain
  • Greater trochanteric pain syndrome
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Patella tendinopathy
  • Osgood Schlatter disease
  • Medial tibial stress syndrome
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Plantar fasciitis

How does DolorClastt® Shockwave help in physical therapy?

Compressed air accelerates a projectile which strikes a fixed applicator, which is placed over the painful area. With the use of gel as a coupling agent, this kinetic energy is converted into a shock wave delivered to the target tissue through the skin.
