About Me

Dr Masi Njawaya is an Australian-trained Doctor and Dual Specialist in Sports, Exercise and Lifestyle Medicine. She provides tailored individual consultations, yet works well in a team environment, to help recreational and competitive athletes of all ages enjoy a physically active life.

“After struggling with career-personal life balance during the final years of my Sports and Exercise Medicine Fellowship Training, I realised I needed to build a healthy lifestyle as the foundation for success. So I studied and become a Board Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician. I have now combined my experience and qualifications to create a unique clinical practice and patient experience that is cutting edge yet evidence-based, in preventative healthcare as well as diagnostic and management therapies of musculoskeletal conditions. My special interest is in Girls and Women’s Health as it relates to sporting injuries, physical activity, healthy nutrition, mental well-being and emotional resilience.”

In 2020, Dr Masi  joined Giants Football Club as the Women’s (AFLW) Head Doctor. She is also the Concussion Doctor for a prestigious Sydney girl’s school. She has additional training in Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA), Anti-Doping Course for Medical Practitioners and Athlete Medical Support Personnel, Concussion Training and Management of Sports Trauma (MOST). Prior Medical appointments include Doctor for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Senior Medical Officer for the Athletics Australia’s National Junior Program.

Dr Masi’s publications in peer-reviewed journals are on tendon and joint treatment modalities including platelet rich plasma injections and shockwave treatments.
