ABC 4 Corners discloses unneccessary operations
Monday 28th September 2015
When we head to the GP most of us assume “the doctor knows best”. But the truth is, many of the scans, tests and procedures ordered by medical practitioners are wasteful, unnecessary and potentially harmful.
“What do you think would be the reaction of the average person in the street if they knew what you knew?
“Well, I think they’d be quite alarmed.” Health Economist
Healthy people are needlessly being turned into patients with tests and scans leading to treatments which at best have no effect, and at worst, cause harm.
“The surgery doesn’t seem to affect the outcome any more than if you did a pretend surgery.” Leading Clinician
“Patients are receiving care that is sometimes ineffective and sometimes unsafe.” Health Economist
And it’s costing us a fortune:
“You know we’re just wasting hundreds of millions of dollars sending people off for unnecessary tests and exposing them to unnecessary radiation.” Health Researcher
In this special edition of Four Corners, guest reporter Dr Norman Swan reveals the real story behind the malaise in the Australian health system. A malaise driven by waste, rather than a lack of money.
“Increases in health care costs have been driven a little bit by (the) ageing of the population, a little bit by increases in the costs of technologies, but the largest drivers are over diagnosis and over treatment.” Health Researcher
Focussing on four common health complaints – back pain, knee pain, chest pain and prostate testing – Dr Swan shows how the cost to patients and taxpayers is escalating. Analysis by Four Corners found billions of dollars being squandered and more than a hundred inappropriate tests and procedures receiving Medicare rebates.
“We’re headed for a tsunami of over diagnosis.” Health Researcher
And as one interviewee explains, part of the answer lies with the public:
“If people knew that health interventions, tests and treatments were not going to deliver benefit, I think they might make different choices.” Head of medical oversight bodyPosted in Pain, Research, Uncategorized | Tagged Pain | Leave a comment

ENAR® Testimonial – Ryan – short circuits lengthy rehab
“Without the rapid healing from the ENAR there was NO way my hand would have healed quickly enough to allow me to compete.”
My name is Ryan. I began Karate when I was 7 years old and currently hold rank of Nidan, 2nd Dan Black Belt. I have competed in Japan twice, won the Title of Junior Black Belt World Champion in the UK in 2011, and came 2nd at the World Karate Confederation Championships held here in Melbourne last year. The ENAR has enabled me to keep a consistent training schedule, taking very little time off for injuries.
One example – I used the ENAR to heal a broken toe. In just one week of therapy I was able to compete successfully, albeit in a bit of pain, but still able to compete!
Another example – I had broken the bone and sustained ligament damage to the thumb on my right hand, the main hand I use to score with in kumite! The swelling was so severe I couldn’t close my hand, couldn’t make a fist, couldn’t wear a mit, and definitely couldn’t fight! We ONLY had two weeks before the Nationals….. I noticed a dramatic drop in swelling after the very first session and by the end of the first week the swelling was completely gone, and I was able to close my hand. By the time I went to the Nationals in Sydney, I was able to compete, win and qualify to attend the Japanese Karate Championships as a member of the Australian Team!
As well as ENAR’s proven ability to treat many painful chronic conditions. (Average 70% chronic pain reduction in 400+ user survey) The ENAR is very effective at speeding up the healing process of acute injuries such as sprains, breaks, burns and other surface wounds. Apply the device on or around the affected area ASAP! to reduce odema (swelling) and fast track the healing process.
“The healing process is so much faster when you get onto it as soon as possible so it’s a handy little device to carry with me and use whenever needed for injuries as bad as broken bones to sprains, corkys, and even just muscle soreness! Thanks Enlightened Therapies!!” Ryan, Karate Junior World Champion 2011
ENAR device owner Joy Hruby is super happy with her ENAR self-therapy results. “Its gone !”
Joy Hruby, OAM, actress, TV presenter, producer and author says… “My ENAR is super. The swelling in my feet has gone down, the pain from my osteo-arthitic knee pain is gone, the pain in my left shoulder that prevented me from sleeping on that side, is gone. I just treated my daughter’s back pain and that’s improved too.”
Joy is the presenter and producer of her own program “Joy’s World” screened weekly on TVS (Television Sydney).Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Enlightened Therapies and ENAR are expecting a great leap forward in 2014. Ground breaking. federal government sponsored research will open a new era for ENAR, and the precedent could possibly help other complementary therapies to address and compile credible medical evidence.
In an era where client centred empowerment strategies are increasingly called for, ENAR Therapy offers drug-free sustainable strategies for different types of painful conditions.
Stay Tuned and look no further than Enlightened Therapies and ENAR in 2014.
