In 2003, having completed his Fellowship with the Australian College of Physical (musculoskeletal) Medicine, Dr Lim founded Northside Physical Medicine, a dedicated medical musculoskeletal clinic at St.Leonards just 4kms North of Sydney CBD.
In 2004, he introduced the advanced technique of prolotherapy, a non-surgical approach to regenerating ligament laxity, to his practice and is the first medical practitioner in Australia to gain certification in prolotherapy from the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine.
In 2010, he introduced platelet rich plasma (PRP) to the practice as a substitute for dextrose, delivering a superior prolotherapy injectant in musculoskeletal regenerative treatment. PRP is now used for tendon tears as well as restoring osteoarthritic joints.
Dr Lim has undertaken ultrasound training with US trainer, Dr Tom Clark, an expert in dynamic ultrasound assessment and needle guidance.
Dr Lim is passionate about the science of pain management and is committed to delivering the most effective therapy, individually tailored to the needs of each patient.
These techniques include manual “hands-on” releases to the affected musculoskeletal structures, trigger points injection and releases, real-time ultrasound assessment of injured site, real-time ultrasound needle guidance to specific injured sites, fascial releases and lymphatic pumping, advanced cranio-sacral releases and restorative prescription exercises.
In his 26+ years’ experience, he has actively enhanced his knowledge and expertise through continuing education and training.
Dr Lim is also involved in the training of doctors in Hong Kong, guiding them to a new specialty in musculoskeletal medicine in Hong Kong. He is the current Examiner for the Hong Kong Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine.
In 2011, he was nominated as President for the Asia-Pacific Association of Orthopaedic Medicine, a new chapter of the US parent Association, to lead the way in the training more doctors in this region in this exciting new medical field.
Master of Medicine Physical (Musculoskeletal) Medicine (Sydney)
Fellow Australian College of Physical Medicine
Dr Mock joined Northside Physical Medicine in 2004 bringing with him special interests in the use of prolotherapy in the management of chronic pain of ligamentous origin, the use of ultrasound in musculoskeletal conditions and postural correction exercises.
He completed his medical training from University of Sydney in 1978 and subsequently completed his Fellowship with both the Australian College of General Practitioners and the Australian College of Physical Medicine. Dr Mock holds a Graduate Diploma and Master of Medicine in Physical Medicine from the University of Sydney.
Dr Mock trained with both the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine and the American College of Osteopathic Sclerotherapeutic Pain Management in prolotherapy, involving the injection of proliferants to tendon and ligament insertions to promote healing and pain management.
Dr Mock has developed expertise in the use of ultrasound for core training as well as guidance for injection procedures. He has completed courses in Australia and overseas in the use of real time ultrasound for musculoskeletal conditions.
His current interest is in the application of dynamic stabilisation exercises for rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions. This involves core training using real time ultrasound and correction of breathing dysfunction, corrective exercises for the integration of spinal segmental stability, peripheral stability and the correction of muscle activation patterns to improve functional fitness.
Dr Mock's focus in patient management is to impart progressive knowledge of musculoskeletal biomechanics and to teach skills for self management and injury prevention.
Beata Rajkowska works alongside Physical Medicine doctors, joining Northside Physical
Medicine in 2004. Coming from a full time outpatient gymnasium and hydrotherapy
based rehabilitation practice, Beata is a qualified exercise therapist as well as
Beata also holds a degree in Physiotherapy from Warsaw University, Poland,
graduating in 1986. She teaches and oversees the exercise programs prescribed by the
musculoskeletal physicians in the practice.
Extensive experience in the European approach to the treatment of musculoskeletal
disorders enhances Beata’s ability to tailor exercise programs for Northside Physical
