Dr Chris HOMAN
MBBS FRACGP FACRRM PGDip MSM
Dr Chris Homan is the founder of Queensland Physical Medicine. He graduated from the University of Queensland in 1989 and pursued a career as a procedural rural doctor for 15 years. During this time he provided all the medical services to a small community including obstetrics, general practice, mental health, emergency medicine and surgery. Over time he became increasingly aware of the large numbers of patients with painful conditions who weren’t adequately treated by the traditional medical system. A personal experience with chronic musculoskeletal pain increased his understanding of the problem and motivated him to start studying in the area. Chris has subsequently completed a Post-graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine and has more than six years of experience with musculoskeletal medicine treatments.

MBBS FRACGP MAMed (Musculoskeletal)
Dr Bruce Jones joined Queensland Physical Medicine in January 2010. He graduated from the University of Queensland in 1991 and has worked in suburban General Practice in Brisbane since then. Over the years, he became aware of the potential benefits that a musculoskeletal medicine approach offered patients and he would, at times, refer certain patients for this specialised form of care. However, it was not until he developed pain following a serious cycling injury that he fully appreciated the limitations of traditional medical care and physical therapies in dealing with patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain. Treatment at Queensland Physical Medicine provided him with significant relief and started him on a path to learning more about this area of medicine. Along the way, he found that he was able to significantly help some of his own long-term patients who, like him, had not been able to gain control of their pain through traditional approaches. He has subsequently completed a Masters in Advanced Medicine majoring in Musculoskeletal Medicineat Sydney’s Macquarie University and is enjoying practicing full-time in this exciting and stimulating field.
