TREATING EVERY BODY LIKE A CHAMPION SINCE 2005

Whether an elite athlete, a weekend warrior, or an active individual, a foot or leg injury can really set you back physically and mentally. Our highly experienced team of sports podiatrists are dedicated to getting you back to sport, gym, work, travel and beyond with better knowledge, strength, function and performance. We use modern assessment methods to deconstruct your injury, communicate your diagnosis and formulate your treatment program. We blend effective short term pain relief such as strapping and massage with long-term resolution strategies including strengthening and stretching programs, customised orthotic prescriptions and footwear advice. We are located within five highly regarded sports medicine centres and have an extensive professional network for when a multidisciplinary approach is required. We are proudly the team Podiatrists for Penrith Panthers NRL and NSW Swifts Netball and are highly skilled in the management of heel pain, knee pain, Achilles tendonitis and osteoarthritis.

“We are lucky to do what we love, every day. No two injuries are the same, nor do they usually follow a textbook presentation, so we pride ourselves on drawing on our extensive experience as well as thinking outside the square to resolve complex cases. We are passionate about actively listening to our patients history, concerns and goals, and constructing a suitable management plan. Our Podiatry degrees provided the theory, however our unique perspective is a result of our experience working within large multi-disciplinary environments for over a decade, allowing us to develop our own contemporary methods of assessment and management.

We are dedicated to providing an exceptional experience for every patient by delivering friendly communication, above-and-beyond service and outstanding outcomes.”

OUR CLINICAL PHILOSOPHY MOVES BEYOND THE ABSENCE OF PAIN.

Our clinical ethos is movement is the best form of medicine. Wherever possible, we strive to keep our patients active whilst we undertake injury management and our long-term goals often include postural improvement, technique coaching and exercise load education to prevent future problems and enhance body mechanics. We are passionate about empowering our community with the knowledge and tools to move, feel and exercise better.

OUR ORTHOTIC philosophy.

We believe foot pronation ("rolling in") is a necessary component of foot function to enhance shock absorption and allow soft tissue structures to move through a normal range of movement. For that reason, it is very rare that we prescribe hard orthotics that block pronation altogether. Our customised orthotics are made from a flexible shell, allowing the foot to move within a normal range of motion to promote natural shock absorption, pain relief and long-term biomechanical benefit. 

Our orthotics are manufactured using technologically-advanced 3D printing system to ensure the highest degree of prescription accuracy.
